I’m trying to decide what to do for tint. I’m limited to 35% on the front windows by state law but all other windows are not limited. If you could share a picture and % to give me an idea of what it may look like I would appreciate it!

Get a optometrist to give you a prescription for tint....just so Johnny law doesn't bother you! It's what I did! I see if I can grab a picture tomorrow it's getting dark here already......get a heat reflective tint also if you do.

I initially wanted to go 20% on mine. The tint guy offered the 12% because i didnt like the too-dark 5% "limo" tint.

Its cloudy outside and not very bright out, but from the inside visibility is still very good.

Thanks for the share. I like your color combo! Visibility from the inside is decent I’m just worried about local law so I’m sticking to a legal certified front.

I have 5% on the back window of my beater Golf and when I back up at night I cant see shit. Feels like my reverse lights are not working.

Maybe I am just getting old.

White LED back up bulbs help a bunch.

Thanks for sharing everyone! I think I’m going to have the wife’s done at 35 all the way around and make my decision based off that but I do like the red with the 32. So I’m leaning towards 35 all around on mine as well.

I have 30% all around but wish I'd done the 20% (which is what I think is on the RS.) Even with heat reflective it's still hot in the little beast after work. I bought I sunshield from covercraft too.

Legal in CO is 27%...

35% all around and nothing on the windshield. 50 front and anything on the back and sides is legal in my state but I wanted it to match. 35 is just right with the grey IMO. 50 all around is just too light and hardly seemed worth the money. 20 or less says pull me over if I am driving in an even remotely "interesting" way.

It happened. I ended up going with 35 front and 20 in the back. I would like thank everyone for their pics and hope this may help someone on the fence in the future! Feel free to continue sharing!

ok, I just noticed that on some of your cars , you have ST on the center caps . Mine says Ford so are those decals or what ? Or maybe it may have something to do with the size because I ordered mine with 17"s .

Wife ordered mine the day we got the car said the blue looked stupid with the black wheels. They aren’t quite right though, I may order another set and modify them a little to try not to break the tabs off when installing. I can find out where she got them but a google search would get you there too.

I think some Red rims or at least some Red lug nuts would look pretty schweet with the Black rims , I've been searching for some Spiked Red lug nuts that would fit my Black rims .

No one has taken my advice on getting a Tint prescription from their ophthalmologist. Best thing ever.... I Got a 6-7 inch Tint banner on my windshield. Do I need sunglasses? Nope because I wear my sunglasses at night.

The added expense and time in finding an eye doc just doesn’t seem worth it to me. Plus I don’t want to be hassled and have to provide documentation every time I get pulled over for being to dark.. You can keep your eyebrow too! I hate driving cars with them, looking through a line across my windshield isn’t my style but many do so yeah.. each their own.

It took me One minute to talk to my ophthalmologist..... One minute to pull the Dr. letter / Prescription out of my glove box if asked.....Didn't get Limo tint either. In the end all worth not being able to be told remove your tint or else and Here is your Citation sir.....Lets take time off of work to go fight it and then end up paying a fine. Ill post up some pics of the banner....I don't have to use sunglasses if I don't want to also so there is more money saved.[woot]

Just in case anyone wants to see what 5% all around looks like. (yah its not legal here either) Right now im thinking i went too dark we'll see if i get used to it may eventually drop down to 20% in front unless i have to remove it involuntarily first.
