I finally made my mind up to do the tints in spite of it being illegal in Jersey. I got my tints the darkest i could....Limo style.....its pitch black. I must say, tints bring out the beauty in a car even more. If anyone is interested in getting theirs done, hit me up...the guy did a great job...he deals with lots of celebs and musicians...tell me what u guys think..

I had 30% on my previous car and driving at night wasn't really bad at all. I plan on going with 20% on my koup. 20 shouldn't be too bad driving at night, but I would imagine that limo would be kinda difficult until you get used too it.

looks good but you know the cops here in jersey are gonna bust you big time about this haha :D

I had limo tints on my old accord coupe, finally took it off because of the difficulty of driving and getting pulled over quite a few times.

I did 15%. Pretty tough to see at times but you get used to it for the most part. I'm just always on the lookout for cops so I can roll down my windows quick.

I've been pulled over once for them so far in the 6 or so months I've had it but luckily I knew the cop. :D If you do get pulled over remember to roll down both windows and turn on your dome and map lights.

I try not to say anything negative in here, but after 25 years of having tinted windows in all my cars I am going to say that you are going to regret this. :(

I always go 35% and not darker. I know it doesn't look as good, but it looks much better than none and I never have a problem with the police or with seeing out.

The first car I had tinted I had the 35% but the rear window done at 20% and I regretted it.

pros/cons to full limo tint-

1)i live in superbight sunshine state of florida
2)i dont drive much at night

now we move to the plus/minus factors
minus- damn- if something outside the car isnt lit up- not much chance of seeing it from the sides or rear.......
plus- smart driver will be much more careful

interior glare- one reason i went to the maguires 'natural' vs the 'shiney' versions of wipes..on bright days depending on sunshine direction- the sun coming thru the windshield can light up the dash and cause alsorts of reflections on the insides of the windows.......

hot days- oh hell yeah- with this tint- i can sit on the leather seats.......fire up the ac to full.......and within about 2 or 3 minutes - be cabin comfortable.......

not gonna point a finger one way or another - but for my usage....the limo tint works.

I think it's 35% in the front... I love it esp at night when Trucks have their bright blue HIDs on or anyone w/ blue HIDs in general...

Where'd you go to get them done? I've heard good things about protints, they have a shop in Elizabeth and Newark. $95 for all around with a life time warranty and I think $50 for each tail light
