I still can't decide if I want to get legal tint...I miss my 5percent but I want the cops to leave me alone so I wonder if the 35 percent will even look good.

35% is too light and not really worth it in my opinion, I would get at least 20%.

I've never ever been stopped with 20%. (Knock on wood) And the times I've been stopped for speeding, the officer didn't say a word about the tint.

Your luck may vary. :winks

I would say at least get 28% or 20% most cops are cracking down on the driver side window and the passenger side window that needs to be 35%.

I think 35% is ok not terribly dark and better off not running illegal tint unless you dont mind getting pulled over all the time.

At least in NC you can run 35% all windows, her in VA 35% rear windows and 50% fronts, I will probably get it done any way because it looks good! I just wish I could go 20% looks incredible!

I think all tints are illegal, but most of the time when a cop pulls someone over for tinted windows, it;s because they have 5% all around and they use that as the excuse. I have 20% on my truck and you can still see inside very clearly especially on summer days and I've seen 35% on cars and just think it's a waste of money, very light almost like having nothing. you could go 15% in the back and 35% up front then it will look a little darker.

thanks guys :) I think 28 or 20 will be a good choice. I will make a decision after I decide whether or not to repaint the whole car. I got a big dent in the side of it now....

I have 15 on the back an 25 on the front. I'm happy with it and haven't had any problems (knock on wood). 35 is a little light, but I guess it's better than nothing. I think that as long as the leo can see you inside and see that you don't have a gun or anything, you should be fine. It's more of a safety thing for the officer, or at least it is around here anyways.

Go with your gut, afterall you will be the paying the ticket. Some officers are more harsh on tint than others. I have 35% on the fronts and 20% on the rear,and imo it looks great and serves the purpose. Why give any probable cause to get pulled over? Good luck on your decision.Afterall,the regulation is there for officer safety during traffic stops and your safety while driving at night. It's not there to stop the appearence of the vehicle.You can also be fined up to $1000.00 as well. (Georgia)

Go for 35% on the front and 20% on the rear windows. In my state 35% is the limit just like yours. I have had three mustangs (91, 94 and 96) and all of them had that tint combo. It looks pretty good and your still legal. If you have black interior like I did it looks even darker too. Just don't go cheap on the brand of tint and you will be all good.

I'd go with 25%, give you some tint but doesn't give you the blacked out look. Granted I would go 20% if I didn't mind being hassled by the pathetic **** of the law.

20% is illegal in most states and in mine but ive had it on all my vehicles for the past 5 years and have never been pulled over for it personally i think 5 percent is to dark and can be a pain at night
