Default Got some new tint

Ok so I finally got my window tint. 20% all the way around.
I got this done last Thursday I already have to take it back for them to redo. They totally F'd up the back and side window. the back has air bubbles in it and was cut wrong which you will see in the pictures, and the smaller side window on the passenger side wasnt pressed all the way on the window. It looks like the grabbed a bum off the street and did my windows . Also the flag part on the gxp badge on the passenger side is rubbing off. and last but not least I got my custom third brake like cover
(note that not all those spots are air bubbles some of it is dirt lol)

Nice! Tints are great, especially when your state has relaxed laws against them :P

Looks alright, but 35% is the ideal tint, shows off the interior just a bit and still gives a decent tinting.

20% will be ok for ya!
