that looks really dark, seems like you have 15% in the rear?
would like to know what percent you used all around.
how is it at night with those tints?

The front, by Texas law, has to be 35%
The rear is 15% (the 5% limo seemed too dark)
It is Solar Guard tint

As for driving at night, haven't had her out at night since the tinting
But my gen coupe was tinting exactly the same and it was fine at night

Nice color combo ready to install my spoiler with splitter, bet we are getting so much snow in Chicago, most likely will wait few weeks

I heard on the radio this morning that all flights from El Paso to Chicago and vice versa were cancelled

Good luck and keep warm

35 front and 15 back is a nice combo

15 all around is nice too if you can pull it off without trouble

The trick is to roll your windows down if you see a cop coming your way
Its what I do, even in winter, it sucks, still worth it.

You can get by with that with the local police and sheriff's departments
But the state troopers are @#$%&'s about it
They carry those meters and they check every car they pull over
