George, I owe you for the awesome hookup. Ceaser is awesome!! He was super **** about working out even the smallest air bubble and it took him only about 90 minutes from start to finish. $120 and a lifetime warranty to boot

I went with a 15% tint. As you can see, in very bright sunlight its perfect and when it'll be cloudy or a little dim it gets nice and dark

Now I just have to give the car a bath.

You didn't think 15% on the fronts was too dark? I'm afraid of getting pulled over for stupid things like tint. Back in the day I had 15% on my integra and got pulled over 3 times in the same month.

I've had 35% on my s2k on the sides and 20 on back and have never had an issue.

I think I'm going to tint the LS but not sure which tint to go with.

I'm thinking either
-15 on the rear and rear sides, and 20 on the fronts
-20 all the way around
-20 on the rear and rear sides and 35 on the fronts
- 35 sides, and 20 on the back

As you can see I can't make up my mind

No, not at all. 90% of the time I just use the car to drive to work and back. I work in the medical field and get let go each time. I've been pulled over for as much as 30 over on the way to work and got off with just a warning

I don't have any probs with 20% rear and 35% up the sides.
15-20% all around looks great, but attracts too much attention to the cops.

I have 35% all around....IMO it looks more classy to have a lighter tint...really dark looks ghetto and on my car (silver) there would be too much contrast.

btw....I've never gotten pulled over for tints

I'm thinking 20 on the rear and 35 on the sides now too. Just like my S.

Although since this is a sedan what would you guys think about getting 20 on everything but the fronts and leave the fronts at 35. Since the rear doors can be darker? Would this look weird?
