The only tint I have on my car is the strip along the top of the windshield. I have had the car over a year now and have not had a need for tint on the rest of the windows yet.

Yes, Yes and Yes..... Your top is down when you are driving. Sitting in the hot sun, is the top up??? 35% on mine much cooler. Get it done!!! No pics on PC all on my phone with the examples.... MY advise, Go for it!!!

Window tint was the first thing I did after bringing her home from the dealer. It's a must have mod...

I've always had tint on my dd including my wife's car. I just wasn't sure about tint on a convt. If I do decide on tint, I would go with either 35% or 50%. Just want to look alittle suttle.

Thanks

2 options available: 1) what you want, or 2) what your state allows... Darker is better IMO.

Down here, you're crazy not to have it. The UV protection alone makes it worth the price. They even make "clear tint" for the entire windshield now for added UV shielding. Some northern states are still uptight about tinted windows. Stay within the legal limit to avoid the hassles.

Me too, first week. 35%. Any darker, had 20% on my LT is hard to see out of at night. Tint is a gotta have in Phoenix and looks good.

I wouldn't have bought the car unless the dealer tinted the windows. More pics in signature link.

In the state of Mi. The law allows only the top 4 inches on the driver and passenger side windows. Most of the cops are fairly lenient as long as its no darker than 35% on the side glass. I have 5% on the side windows of my DD, and I've only been pulled over once in the 12 years that I've owned my truck. Well I'm gonna have to give this some serious thought. Thanks!
