(4) the rear window of which is composed of, covered by or treated
with any material which has a light transmittance of less than seventy

(c) Any person required for medical reasons to be shielded from the
direct rays of the sun and/or any person operating a motor vehicle

of glass approved by him as conforming to the specifications and
requirements for safety glass as set forth in this section, and shall
not issue a license for or relicense any motor vehicle subject to the
provisions of subdivisions eleven and twelve unless such motor vehicle
be equipped as therein provided with such approved type of glass.

I think that everyone has their own opinion. Go with what you like. You like mirror then go with that, or black, go with that. I personally have had both. Mirror you can go with a lighter tint and it still blocks out people seeing in. I personally like black on my white car limo 5% style. Edit: I like the look of it, I hate the limited visability at night though.

What you said about lighter tint blocking with mirror is why I like mirror. I don't want to have my visibility at night to be that poor either. I have no clue what looks best, I'm a bit color blind and can't really put colors together, lol.

I agree with Jim. I have a white 02 SSEi that I would like to tint. Debating on either %35 or %50 for mine. I realize that in IL it'* illegal to do the front ones, but I don't care. It will look so much better than just doing the back ones, plus it will save my interior from the sun this summer.

This is my old car, a 97 silver sebring. Personally i think that black looks sharp on silver. Don't do the silver (known here as mirror). It'* very VERY blinding when the sun reflects off of it. I'm doing 20% black on my windows this saturday. It was supposed to have been done yesterday, but they were out of 20%

Crappy pic, but it works
