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

Getting there little by little
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

state troopers need to find something better to do... geez
One time I was driving home with my racing bike up on the yakima rack on my truck. I passed a state trooper and they slammed on their brakes, went into a power slide, almost hit another car, turned on his lights, and came after me.

After I was pulled over I asked the trooper if something was wrong with my bike figuring it had to be a dangerous situation for him to come after me so crazy, and the only dangerous situation I could think of was the bike was about to fall off of the rack into the street. He got pissed off, took me out of my truck, frisked me, had his partner keep his hand on his gun, etc.

The whole thing turned out to be that I did not have a front license plate on my truck. He cited me for missing the front license plate and sent me on my way.

At the time I was an assistant principal at a middle school, and with my luck two of my students witnessed the whole thing. It was the big joke at school for a couple of days.
