Heh, you guys think you got it rough?? I live in the oh-so-wonderfull-when-it-comes-to-laws state. New York. Legal limit here is 70% on ANY side window. The back window (back window above the trunk) is not allowed to be tinted AT ALL, unless you have 2 side view mirrors (which most of us do), in which case you can spray paint the rear window black if you wanted to, no limit.
My tint on my Bonneville is 20% all down the sides and currently none on the back window, but soon 2.5%. I have never had a problem with the Bonneville, probably for that exact reason, its a Bonneville. local cops in my town are more interested in going after the ricers.
I did get a warning almost 3 years ago in my borthers volvo when he had his windows tinited. He had all the windows tinted pretty dark, like 5% all around. Needless to say we had to scrape it off all of the sides, and even though it was a local cop who warned me, I went to the state place to have them put they're meter on it just for kicks. The Trooper was REALLY cool, and get this, when we put the meter on my brothers clear, untinted side windows, they were at 72%. In other words, they must have had a slight tint from the factory but it was so light you couldnt even tell, and they were 2% lighter than the NYS law!! Why even bother having tint at 70%, you cant even frekin tell its there!
Oh well, welcome to New York I guess...
