15% all around, 15% strip:

Worthy Note: if you go to your Eye Doctor and they can write you an eye prescription for glare and migraines to keep in your glove box with your registration if they try to pull you over and site you for tint. I could do 5% all the way around but I think 15% looked a bit classier still super dark.

Also I tinted the center rear tails black and the side of the tails to match the black Lower spoiler to wrap all the way around.

A lot of people that would never buy one compliment it a lot. They say it’s super sharp just out of the budget or family needs.

Those with sunroofs, are you tinting yours? I’m planning on doing rear windshield, and all doors this week. This is my first time owning a car with a sunroof.

Here are more recent photos of my car. Again I have 5% all around and 50% windshield tint.

Looks great. :love:

NY, though? How are you not pulled over by the cops every 10 minutes while driving?? Lol. I have reasons to never want interactions with police, so when I get mine done, I'm only doing the rear window at 5% and a tint strip at 2-5%. I just don't feel like worrying about getting pulled over or the yearly inspections.

Knock on wood, I have never been pulled over for tints. I don't have to worry about the inspection portion of it or even the police anyway. I have a medical exemption for them. But regardless I have never been pulled over and the tints have been on almost a year now.

I forgot about medical exemptions. Do you know if something pops up about medical exemptions on their computer if they run your plate, so thats why they don't pull you over?

I used to get harassed constantly with my first car ('93 Civic with blacked out windows) and pulled over twice a month or so. This was almost 20 years ago though. And I'm sure it varies by department on how strict they are. But it's made me skittish about tint ever since. Lol.

Nothing populates their computer no. They only find out when I show them the little card. I would say if you get them when you get pulled over just roll down all of your windows so they can see inside the car and youll be fine.

50% ceramic over the factory 70%, resulting in 35-40% - Legal limit here is 35% so can't go too dark. Car is a bit dirty...

Yep you basically just get the exemption from your doctor and keep it with you or in the car. At least that's how it's working with my doctor at the moment. I'll be going for my tint tomorrow but I will try to go somewhat light in the front and not try to go limo tint even on the back. Just ceramic coating for optimal heat rejection and supposedly over 50% of UV light rejection even on the clear film.

When I dropped off mine for tinting the other day I asked about doing the sunroof. The tech told me that most people tend to pass on the sunroof due to the added cost and the fact that there is a slider to close if you don't want the sun -- which was pretty much what I had already been thinking. I passed on doing the sunroof.
