Re: Factory Tints

My recommendation is to do 50% on the whole windshield, and then do 15% on the sides.


But if you do the windshield, then and only then you can get away with 20% (its what I have done).

Re: Factory Tints

Had my front windows tinted at 35 and got pulled over 3 times that same month. Cops let me go because I was in uniform from my city job. Anyway, l decided to jump to 50 after one night while trying to make a left turn I couldn't see a pedestrian crossing the street. My 50's look okay. I can always use the back seats

Re: Factory Tints

I have 5% all around except front windshield. Even 5% over the factory. Backing up at night can be a bit** but roll down the front windows a bit and your fine. I LOVE it, had it for about 2 months now and I live in Fairfax County and haven't gotten pulled over yet. It is BY FAR my favorite mod and I would never go back. Only problem is during the day the windshield looks too bright, I'm thinking about tinting the windshield a bit but I'm worried about being able to see at night.

Re: Factory Tints

I understand through you JG vets that the factory tints are within the glass.

Do the factory tints still provide sun and heat reflection or should a clear reflective film be added to the rear/back to do this?

Thanks all.

Re: Factory Tints

I'm a Newb but i want to mention that factory "tints" are not tint film, it is actually a tinted type of glass and comes out black when it is manufactured. I think its called solar-ray glass or something like that.

Re: Factory Tints

Spent about 6 hours over three days getting the tint just perfect on my 240 a few years back. Drove it for the first time a week later. Made it 1.2 miles down the road from my house and a friendly trooper wrote me a $225 ticket and made me take the tint off before I could drive away. I swear! You'd think I had a bumper sticker that read "I Hate Piggly Wigglies!"; when in fact, some of my best friends are LE. Oie.

hes right, there is no UV-A or B protection from the sun on factory smoked glass. I had a local shop add 35% to all the rears and 20% to the front. Back glass reads 7%, getting fronts redone to 15% this week.
