I like the 35%, plus thats the legal limit in MD!

I also like the idea of the 99% uv tint, I'll look into it.

Thanks guys!

SW03ES: Let me know your findings - cause I was looking into tint also.


I know it would be costly as hell - but I know that Lexus manufactures their own tinted windows~any ideas of what they may cost out on the market?

Formula One and Llumar and Johnson tint are some of the best. We have a Formula One store locally in Raleigh. They sold me the raw tint for the back window, so I could do it myself.

Default thinking of lexus tint.

hey guys, my mom's approved me to get the entire ES tinted, since being a '93 and sitting in the sun all day, the stock tint is sorta... not there anymore. i can see straight through the car, with no color blur... and since i'm gonna take the ES starting in december, and it'll be at school for 7 hrs on end, i asked to tint it.
anyways, onto the real reason for this thread, i was thinking of getting the stock Lexus tint that's on the RX's, the REALLY reflective stuff on the back, and maybe some 35% on the front. what do you guys think? i'm on TX, so there's a limitation to 35% on the front. any opinions are greatly appreciated guys. pictures are welcome too.

I personally don't like the look of mirror tint on only some windows, if you're gonna do that do them all.

On a side note, I just got a fix-it ticket for my tint last night, I've got 20% on the back three windows. I think I'm just gonna take it off rather than pay the $85 fine and risk another one. I go through that town pretty frequently and my car is pretty noticeable, if I didn't take it off, I'll guarantee that those same cops would see me sooner or later and not be happy.

Many RX 300 owners use LLumar window film to match
their front side windows with the back windows.

I agree with Kyle Harty, go with one type of tint, mixing just looks funny.

STAY LEGAL!!! I've gotten pulled twice for having 20% all-round (tinting fronts is illegal here).

OK, I used my lexus ES300 in Houston, Galveston TX for about a year with 20% tints and nobody ever stopped me. Infact I did the tints myself, (and no it is not one of those with a ^&it load of bubbles in it, infact Its been two years since I did tints on the car and there is still no bubble. I think one of these days I shall do a write up on the tints for the group.
