Re: Windshield tint

The car has 20% on top of factory and 35% on the windshield.
It's dark but I like it. The privacy is key.

Re: Windshield tint

Damn that looks nice. I might talk my wife into going with 50% on the front now that I've seen this. Any issues with the law for those that have this done? We have 20% on the driver/passenger windows with no incidents (knock on wood) and would hate to suddenly trigger them to start pulling us over due to this.

I'd be more concerned having a tint applied to the windshield and being involved in an accident at night. Probably opens you up for a lawsuit due to the reduced visibility from inside the vehicle.

In Virginia, you can have your windshield tinted up to 70% WITH a medical waiver and be able to put 35% on your front door windows. Of all my years of having my vehicles tinted I have never ran across anyone with 70% tint, lol. In VA w/o medical waiver legally in VA you can have 50% on your front doors and 35% everywhere else, UNLESS you have a van, SUV, truck, and maybe can get away with a station wagon, which then you can black out all of the rear windows and not worry about getting pulled over for dark tint. My Tahoe is blacked out on the rear doors and rear window with 5% (aka limo tint). I have never been hassled about the dark windows or have been ticketed for it. I did use to have dark front door windows on my Tahoe, and was ticketed for them.

I've gotten pulled over only twice in the vehicle that I have the windshield tinted. The first time was at night, and the cop didn't even noticed my windshield was tinted, and since I had the waiver and had the 35% on my two front doors, he let me go. lol! and he even had a 2 piece light meter (very rare to have IMO, at that time). The 2nd time I got pulled over the cop did notice the windshield, it was daytime, and I had the medical waiver. If he had a two piece light meter, and tested my windshield, he could have ticketed me. But usually once they see the med waiver, they'll let you go, in regards to the windshield.

In Virginia we have our safety inspection sticker smack dab in the lower center of the windshield, which just messes up the whole look of the tinted windshield, IMO, lol! I hated having a nicely 35% tinted windshield then you a small area with light getting through.

35% for my eyes would be the darkest I would ever go, maybe 30% if someone had it, but the only percentages I have ever seen are 50,35,20,5. 20% would be waaaay too dark for my eyes at night.

Re: Windshield tint

Well just got it done today with 50%. No problems at all. I told this installer the same thing and he laughed saying "what is the other guy using a hose?" now I'm going back tomorrow to get the chrome on the windows vinyl wrapped and she's done

Re: Windshield tint

I have %35 on mine. Will never not have it again. Keeps the vehicle cooler I the inside.



Here can see it vs the %20 in the sides



From inside you can barely tell its tinted
