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.

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...

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.
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.

After thinking about it, I came to that conclusion...I left the sunroof untouched.

It cost a good bit but I went with ceramic tint all around, including the sun roof though I forgot to ask to NOT have it done so it was thrown in anyway. Albeit it for a cost. Went 55% on the front passenger/driver side windows, 70% on the front windshield, and 20% for all rear windows. Classy yet still keeps my skin from too much UV light :)

I have ceramic 30% on all my sides and rear. I also have 70% ceramic on my front windshield. I’m not a fan of super dark tint, so this 30% is perfect in daylight. No issues on seeing outward.

Nice deep rich even tint. I also have a cover craft windshield cover on.

Front windshield @ 70% ceramic.

All photos are from today. Had this tint job for about a year. Was about 600 out the door all together.

I highly recommend YS tinting in Santa Clara / San Jose for all of you Nor-Cal guys.
