Wink Who likes my new tint?

I got 35% all around except the front windshield. I really wanted that tinted too but noone will do it It's really easy to see out the back and sides at night. Anyway here are pics...

Yea I'm glad I didn't go darker. The next lowest was 20% but they look different on the sample window. I was almost going with 20 and I saw a car they just did 35 and it was plenty dark.

I paid alot, around $250 after tax out the door. But lifetime warranty for anything.

They couldn't tint over the brake light without taking the deck out, which is a pain. I got it done at Z-tech in Champaign with the Llumar tint.

Looks nice, I went with 15% I think it looks better but that's a personal opinion. Looks great though, anything is better than no tint. Post pics as soon as I have some!

Awesome. Most cars don't look right without tint, in my opinion. Looks really nice. I like the shaved trunk, too.

Then again, in some places tinting over it is illegal cause it's not as bright. I took the deck out once and don't really wanna do it again.

looks really good but 250 is way too much.... maybe it depends on the area. around philly most places charge 180 for everything using llumar tint with lifetime warranty

looks good. i guess on the lighter color cars, it shows up darker. my tint is 35% and it looks like crap - it just looks smoked. i hate it. i'm going to have them re-done one of these days and get 15%.

thanks. If anyone can help, the windows are having a very hard time rolling down. They're getting stuck on the rubber things. What should I do?
