People actually tint their moon roofs? lol... 35 % looks great man... tint is probably the best asthetic mod you can do.. other than a nice set of wheels... lookin great man. Black is gorgeous.

Thanks all....
55% on the sunroof is equivalent because it'* already tinted...looks equal to the sides.

it'* super easy to see out of even at night. I suggest that anyone looking to do it research locals and get a good high quality install with super quality stuff. This is called Onyx. I didn't want it to look dark and it really doesn't.

Footey... There is no inspection in CT, only emissions. And if a cop tries to nail me I'm maybe 1-2% over and should be able to question when his light thingy was calibrated.

Bill that looks great! How did that sound insulation work out? (ie. how much of a difference did that make? I was think about putting some on my rear deck when I replace my craped out Pioneer 6x9s.)

it'* tough to tell..the rear seat is still out and the pass through is larger and wide open. Seems to have helped though.

Looks great Bill- I have to get mine done soon. Black on Black.
Nice job with the insulation, Im sure that you'll notice a difference with it once the leather is back in.

Looking great! I'm addicting to having my cars tinted now too.. it makes a huge difference in look and interior feel IMO. And for the record, our cars have what'* called an astroroof.. It can tilt up, or go back into the roof.

Well, Since I haven't been on until today, better late than never, I guess.

I like it!

But then I'm spoiled with tint (third car I've tinted) and like the aesthetic. I like tint with most any color, but it has a sweet effect on white and black cars, IMO.

I also like the sound proofing. What brand did you use?
