where did you get your done..be careful with that tint I used to have it on my old jeep 5% all around got pulled over about 4 times for it and 2 90$ tickets.

I've had 5% all the way around on both of my vehicles for the past 5 years and have never had a single ticket. It's very rare that a police officer will carry a tint gun and actually have it registered.

(but may just be a TX thing)

Yea they are a lil more strict about it here. Got pulled over on a major high way once (66) if you know the area. Was going to the speed limit and everything and had no idea why i was getting pulled over. Only to find out the only reason he pulled me over was my tint. Some cops have nothing better too do i guess

Oh I didn't even notice that you asked this question. Sorry. There is a tint shop off Willard Road by the Pohanka Lexus and Fast Food Central. I got pulled over by a FFX cop once because my headlight was out and he mentioned the tint but I got him to laugh and he said "Don't get pulled over again with it" gave me a warning. I also go pulled over on the way back from VCU by a state trooper...effing aholes...my mom was in the car and I didn't even have a chance to talk my way out of it hahaha. Oh moms!
