Nice!!! I have an appt. to get mine done this week. What % did you get? Also, do you have any pictures of the side of the car? I think I"m getting 35% all the way around. Looks great.

Just got mine done this last weekend. Have 35% on 93 Z but went with 20% on 5th Gen, she looks good now. Of course I had to come home and wax afterwards, soapy water runs every where.

Here's Mine

5% I didnt like it at first, but now its starting to grow on me.
I started to go with a blend: 35% on the fronts 20% on the sides and 5% on the rear. At the last minute i went with 35% on the fronts and 5% on the rest.

I like how you have the windows down in the pictures showing off your tint haha. I wanted to see how stark the contrast was with the 5 and 35 next to each other.

BTW, it looks AWESOME from what I see. I think you made the right choice, but like I said my only concern would be how harsh the transition would be.

Sorry, the picture wasn't taken to show the tint. Im in Afghanistan right now where the internet is worse than dial-up. Some pics will not upload. The ones with my windows up i tried and for some reason they wouldn't.

I will try to get to a different internet connection and to get you some better pics of the transition.

Thanks for the compliment!!

I had my window tint completed today. 35% on 5 windows. Came home from the shop and proceeded to clean her up to get her looking sweet again.

Got my Tint done Tuesday. Went with 30% on the rears and back, 40% on the Driver & Passenger. The black interior makes it look even darker....
