I came across this infiniti the other day that is owned by a dude that works at the Dunkin Donuts I get my coffee at. Next time I see it parked there I'm going to ask the guy how driving at night is bc his are pretty dark.

haha neither do I.. I didn't even notice them until you mentioned it.

I figured I would snap a pic bc our exterior colors are kind of similar and it would give me an idea of how a dark film would look.

Agreed. I think I might go w/ the lighter shade just to be safe though.. I dunno.

---------- Post added at 09:53 AM ---------- Previous post was at 09:28 AM ----------

I just got off the phone w/ my local Lamin X vendor and am going to most likely stop by his shop this afternoon.

He told me he doesn't even use the pre-cut films, but cuts his own for a cleaner install. He also said he's done a lot of the dark tints, but said it def is illegal but it comes out really nice and doesn't cut much or any light output.

If anything I'll take a look at how dark it is today, and if it's too dark I'll order the light tint (which he doesn't stock) and go back.

I'll try and snap a pic with it laid out if I can.

Oh yeah I can't wait!! I'm going to see if he can lay down some film and then turn on the headlights and fogs to see how much light if any is lost.

Will do.. I just talked w/ him again, but he's not sure if he has the gunsmoke in stock right now, so I may have to wait until it comes in.
