Talking 35% WINDOW TINT INSTALLED YESTERDAY!!

Just had all my windows tinted with 35% tint. Because the Camaro comes from the factory already slightly tinted @75%, I decided to go with the 35% all the way around for a more uniform look. 35% tint combined with the factory tint gives you a tint % more around 28-30%.
I did not want to go with a darker tint so as not to draw more attention than necessary from the police and not to exagerate the already numerous blind spots that the Camaro has. Here are some pics:

I ordered IBM also. 35% is the legal limit in Missouri after seeing yours I think that I will go with that. I don't plan on running a front plate which I don't think the police really care all that much about but add illegal tint and I might start getting pulled over. By the way the car looks great

75% front? I don`t know what California laws permit, in New York State, tint on the windshield will get you a ticket.
Not only that but driving at night would be a bitch.

Oh Yeah almost forgot the total price for all the windows was $220 out the door and I could choose whatever tint % and material.

Nice. I am SO GLAD I ordered IBM. Can't wait for mine to arrive!

I normally don't like tinting but I have to say that looks pretty good.

Wow, for all 5 windows? That's about 1/2 of what everyone else is paying for ceramic tint. Was it FormulaOne Pinnacle Series or Huper Optik?

WOW!!! If you had all 5 windows done with ceramic tint for $155, then everyone else is getting the shaft.
That is a ridiculously great price!
