easily removed if needed. makes car look cooler. do it.

um, i vote do it yourself, or pay for just back window, cuz its a big P in the A. but the side windows can be taken out and done on a table, super simple.

#ZombieCobra lives!!!

2000 Mustang GT, all black, was an auto - now has a 2004 GT engine with 5-speed (and maybe a cam?), BBK throttle body, SR CAI, BBK headers, BBK X-pipe, BAMA X4 tuned!

Body to be defined later...

i would get it done for that price. seems really cheap to me..maybe mine was 180. cant remember. but 5% is really dark at night. looks good thought and nobody can see you unless you have the sun hitting your from your windshield. 10 or 15% will look good too

anyone else have any comments... do the cops bother you with the tint that dark or do they pretty much leave you alone

They might bother you a little more, but it all depends on where you live.
