    The beast with front tints to match the back. Sure glad we don't have yearly vehicle inspections were I live. Don't mind the haunted white outbuilding in the backround, its coming down this summer and in its place will be a nice 3 bay shop with a mother-in-law living area above it. Will be so nice to have the extra room, every square inch of my current garage is used in the winter. Suburban, Acura RSX, Polaris 3-person jetski, and a John Deere X-300 reside there. I have 3" of clearance from the front of the suburban and the garage door, it is quite the complex parking job every time. A little better in the summer when the jetski is at the lake and out of the garage. A shop will be priceless!!

    I just ordered 20% for the front door windows and 5% for the rear door windows and rear windows for the Phantom. Our annual inspections does not require that window tint be legal as long as the window "works". But Im sure that I will get pulled over because Im sure 20% is way to dark for NY but If you wanna play ya gotta pay.

    I did mine myself... Installed 35%. With35% you can still see the occupants inside... And so far I haven't been harrassed by the local police. Order quality tint and it will hold up longer... You can also get pre-cut for your vehicle. The key to putting it on is a baby shampoo mixture with the water and a hair drier.

    I don't like it and I think I don't need it, so the answer is no.

    I'm a fan of tint myself. It's one of the cheapest easiest adds to a vehicle to change the look. If that's something one is in to, then that's the place to start. If you've never had tint before, it'll take a few days to get used to seeing, especially at night, depending on how dark you go. Once you are used to it, though, you'll probably never go without tint. That is, of course, if the tint job was done right. I never noticed the inner temperature being any cooler to notice it, but I'm sure there's a difference. It probably has a big different on leather seat, however. This is my first vehicle with leather seats. I have never been a leather seat fan, but since I never had them before, I really can't say for sure how I like them. Happy truckin'!!!

    I love my factory tint on the Tahoe. you can't even see in the rear windows. State laws are strict in CT so no intention to add more tint.

    I think tint looks good on any vehicle - the darker the better. And, if you have other exterior mods, even more better.

    Ive always done 20% over everything except the shield. I was nervous about it on the first vehicle I did it on, iirc 35 is legal here, but 2 cars and 2 trucks, about 10 years, and never been pulled over for it. I'll probably always stay with 20. Plenty dark, can still see at night. No pics of cars, that was before I had computers and a digital camera/cell with camera.
