Tint

I had mine done at MR TINT in Columbus Ohio, Paid 179.00 for 35% all around and a lifetime guarantee. I upgraded the tint so it will stay black and not turn that purple color you see with some tints.

Idaho is the same way. We have no emissions standards and no noise ordinances, except for music and that is only downtown. No limit on how wide you can go on your tires. You don't have to have fender flares to cover them.

When I got my used cars "inspected", it consisted of a deputy walking out to the car and making sure the VIN matched what it said on the title :hihi: . In other words, you could get plates for a scrap of dashboard attached to a cubed-car, on a flatbed. No wheels no tires, no brakes, all fine and dandy.

If any of those things cause a problem, you are on the hook for them, but otherwise, you are simply expected to use your good judgement. I like that. The Californians who move here for the legal freedom are trying to change Idaho into California though.

It is ironic you say that about Californians, for here in Cali, yes we have a smog inspection (every two or three years) and no we can not have our front windows tinted more than 70% (close to factory "smoked" windows) and that is due to CHP officers not liking getting shot at (reasonable). But we can have any of our windows behind the driver as dark as we want to go (hence why I have 5% limo tint). But what we do not have here in Cali is a saftey inspection. At best, the DMV may inspect the VIN and plates and that it is a complete car. Just like where you are at, if anything goes wrong, count on being on the hook for that. For it is the driver's responsibility to have a safe and legal vehicl on the roadways.

And my car is black too and with the tint it looks awesome.
extra care would be don't clean windows with any abrasive cleaner...in other words don't use anything with amonia in it or your tint will probably turn purple, which is horrible.

i got mine tinted to 20% which i think is perfect...i'd do the same all around as it looks better than having different levels. check your laws though.

i have recently seen a few scratches in my tint over that last month, when i got it done it has lifetime warranty so i'll be taking it back to get redone. only thing that sucks is waiting a few days until windows can go down.

Ok.......I paid $140 for mine, had to be cash. I "did not" get a receipt because I went too dark and not legal for my state. My tint is not legal in NC but is in SC. Oh well I live in NC. Not too worry though. My best friend inspects cars......... Oh yea...........I went pretty dark.......cant see me while driving...........The State troopers dont like that!
