jackburton will become famous soon enoughjackburton will become famous soon enough
I got 15% all the way around on my black 04 ex sedan, and i have to say the improvment is remarkabel. Ac is colder, cops cannot see in, and it just makes the car look soooo much better.
Sucks about cali, why do they care so much, it is just tint, they should worry about more important stuff, like guns and real crime!!
If i were you i would get legal on the back and darker on the sides, that way you can roll the windows down, and pass inspection, cause they will probably only test the rear. Also if you see the cops you can roll em down, but it is not full proof.

I used to live in cali and from what i remember you can't do any tint on front windows (drivers door and passengers) you can do the two back doors quarter windows and rear glass. I forget what legal % but i'd say back doors 20% and rear glass and quarters 5%. By the way I have a coupe w/20% all around (sorry no pictures)

Kyle23 should not be trustedKyle23 should not be trusted
I used to have 20% all around until I got caught speeding (90 in a 65) I think they were just mad and made me take it off ciz I got another ticket for speeding before that and they didnt say anything..Infact, the officer said that it looked nice... I personally think that 20 looks the best on all cars unless ur car is black w/ black interior then u should go 35 cuz the black makes it look alot darker....

Deluxe 35% Blue. Which my tinter told me equals around 18%...I don't know. I know its not as dark as 20% black, which I had on my last 2 cars and loved. But it is dark at night. Sorry I don't have a better picture...

thats the most retarded reason to get a ticket. they care about front but not back? you could still have someone hiding in the back seat with a gun just as easily.
