how much was the tint?
Was 50$ to have it done. He used a product called Nightshade and put some clearcoat over it to keep the plastic-like finish.

I think its legal. The guy i got it done at seems to like keeping things within the legal limit. When i got my window tints, i originally wanted to go darker but he said he wont go down to certain percentages because it conflicts with he law and recommended i keep it at 30% in the front. As for the taillights, it does make blinkers and reverse lights a bit harder to see in direct sunlight but not by a huge amount. At night its not even a problem

Just got my new whip! Nice upgrade from the '14 LX 5 speed (needed new tires ... so why not upgrade!) to the '16 LX 6MT. I just had to get the 6MT. Dealer told me there were only a handful available in the whole state of FL!

Once I saw them side by side, I knew I couldn't leave without it!

This car has a better feel than the '14, especially from first to second, even with such a small increase in HP and torque. Still getting used to this electronic parking brake too.

Take it from someone who regrets not doing it. But get that expensive paint protection stuff people do every 5 year. I take of my car and still keep seeing new scratches on my black civic

Got my reverse/blinker lights tinted. I think they blend really well with the black paint and give the taillights a more aggresive look. Just need my window visors and i think im set!

I've been debating between doing this, or the opposite, but i just made my decision. Looks hot!
