theres not enough contrast with the mirror tint. looks like crap to me.

but then, its not my car. obviously i choose black [just look at my siggy] over mirror for silver cars.

60% is barely anything.. my windows were 82% STOCK on my 95 ssei

here is 50% tint overtop the stock tint.. ended up being 37% when it was tested.. TICKETED, even though it was legal tint

if you know you have strict cops.. tell the tinter you do NOT want to be illegal and have the cops test the windows after you do them just to be sure.. if they are illegal go back to the tinter
