Just my opinion, but, black windows on a while car looks AWESOME!! You should be able to do 20% legally, right? That would look great. But if you want more visibility at night, might want to go a little lighter. Good luck! Post some pics when you have it done.

Thanks scott-you are right white car with smoked windows does look great.My wife drives this car too and she is short and has trouble backing up-my reason for a lighter tint.

I just roll my windows down at night so I can back up. Get at least 20% on the windows and an eyebrow. At sunset with no sunglasses the eyebrow is a life saver! And I love the look of it.

I'd go with a 35% if you're worried about LEO's ... It'll provide function and isn't so dark where they'd be inclined to pull you like 20% and below will net you. That said I have 20% on all my vehicles for the past 15 years or so with no tickets.

Florida's limit is 28% for driver and passenger side and unlimited for rear quarters and back with brow to A1 line. That being said I have 25% on front doors and 15% on the rears and brow of my Chevy SS and 20% on my ZL1 all around with no issues.

Don't do the blue thing... looks like crap. A nice (legal) smoke tint will look great on your car.

It does seem a little pricey. I paid $140 for a national brand tint installed at a well known local chain and it looks like crap.

So I would gladly pay what you said to have it done right. So I might tell the guy that. Tell him it is pricey, but you get what you pay for, and you'll pay him that to make sure there's no bubbles in the back window and no trahs in the tint anywhere.

I have 5% on the rear windows and 20% on the driver/passenger windows. I still have to roll my window down while backing up next to a curb at night.

Thumbs up Tinted Windows

I got my yellow 2014 Camaro the 2nd day I had it. The tint shop put 20 on it and so far no cops have bothered me. LOL one pulled up next to me and gave me a thumbs up. I am in NJ. Did not tint the front windshield.
