I have had 5% on my last three vehicles. Its my first mod to any new car. The beauty of having it on a Jeep is that the rear is tinted dark (18%) factory. Therefore it is difficult for a cop to see that i have illegal tint, versus say a sedan who has no tint factory and 5% rear glass is just obvious. All I really have to do is roll my front two windows down and you can't tell anything is illegal.
The one time my vehicles DID get pulled over for tint (in the last 8 years). Cop give me a ticket and told me to take the tint off and I had to go to a special shop or whatever for them to verify. Ha... I go to my buddys inspection shop, he passes me, i take it to the D.A. on the court date, show him my inspection slip and he lets me go. The D.A. doesn't care two shits about tint, he's dealing with rapists and murderers
. Works like a charm and all it cost was $20 for something I had to do anyway.
I have never had any problems seeing out of it. I admit, at night, backing up I have to roll the front windows down. But I mostly back into spots anyway so its no biggie. In all reality 5% is probably not as dark on the inside as you think it is. Personally I see it as a must.
Going with 20% is illegal anyway so might as well go 5%. Thats just my opinion
But i think we can all agree on: some tint is better than no tint so go get it done!
