Default Tint

Just got back home from droping the car off to get it'* windows tinted ! To get a warante on the tint i had to go with the "legal limit", which is 35% in Washington state . I'm kind-of disapointed that I couldn't go lower but oh well . I'll have pics. up as soon as i can. They said that it should be done by 6:00 tonight (droped it off at 2:00). Should cost $230.

I'm SO EXCITED! :P

Yeah, it'* for all windows (except front ) It was typical for around here. I shoped around and found they range from $220 to $260.

35% looks great. My car is at that level (legal in Oregon, too). You'll be pleased when backing up. Darker than 35% on the side and back windows makes it DAMN hard to see behind you when backing. That'* why I didn't tint my reverse lights when I tinted my tails. And I'm running Halogen reverse lights.

We need pics!
I'm still debating the whole tint thing too. It would be nice but I want it dark enough to make a big difference without getting too much flak from the local law.

You could still go 35% on the drivers & passenger front windows, & go darker in the rear. The main thing that affect you is the very rear window. You could 35% all the way around and do 20% for the rear window to give you a darker effect, especially at night time. This way youll stay legal as well.
