What tint?

Just wondering what tint you guys are going with. I was thinking 20% on mine, think that will be a problem with cops or anything? Also are you going to get it tinted at dealer or a special place?

I've got 20 all around it's just right. You don't need inspection for a couple of years, it looks better in my opinion.

I don't think I wouldn't drive too far for tint... most shops will do just fine. Check w/ your dealer and see who they use.

However I will definitely endorse Performance Auto Tint in Conroe and so does my dealer. They did a perfect job and it only took an hour while I watched. Come on up and we'll do lunch
