i get all psyched up to get my windows tinted, only to find out that it is illegal to tint the driver and passenger side driver windows......WTF is that?? are the laws like this anywhere else?

do you guys think its still worth doing if I only get the rear and pillar windows done??

How bad do you want it?
I had my door windows done as well. Sometimes I wish I didn't... but on summer days, I'm sure as hell glad I did!

Do all of them anyway and jsut keep your fingers crossed that no police ticket you for it. It's worked for me for a few years now

Hahaha..not that much difference from CA and Ca huh? hahahaha... I think you should still do it... cause everyone else would be too scared to get ticketed for it..so it would be original.

i thought you could tint the driver and passenger windows just as long as it's not under 35%?

Nope. I've asked and asked.

No go. Illegal. Ask any tint shop, they should tell you the same.

Now... if you really want to flaunt it...

Get your front windshield tinted. Not just the strip up top... the whole thing


Now that looks badass

I've already gotten a ticket for it - got off easy. I just said I bought the tints myself and installed it with the help of a friend (who makes decals and large stickers - same process.) Cop let me off easy but said I had to take 'em off in 3 weeks or next time, I'll get a $180 ticket and maybe even get towed b/c I disregard the law or something... blah. Tints are still on.

I just keep and eagle eye out for cops, lower the windows when they come around...

why dont you just get some light tint like blue or gold(which kinda looks yellow) or 50% tint. i mean have you ever seen 50%? it doesnt even look like you have any tint at all.
