Default Official 2nd Gen IS Tint Thread - add your pics here!

2IS Members,

With summertime upon us, I'd like to have a single point of reference for all the tint questions that will come. If you've had your 2IS tinted, please upload pictures to the Club Lexus gallery and link them in this thread (Click here to get to the gallery upload and Method B in this link will tell you how to add pictures if you don't know how).

Please list:
- % tint
- color of your interior (does make a big difference in how dark tint appears)
- type of tint if you know it (smoke, dyed, metalized, etc)
- brand of tint if you know it (3M, Solarguard, Lumaster, etc)

There are a number of good "I got tint" threads, but I'd like to make one master thread with pictures of each percentage and pictures of different color 2IS/different interiors with tint. Here are some of those threads I'll link in if the owners don't.

From time to time I will prune this thread of comments and questions, leaving only the posts with pictures.


Laws for tint in your state:
I can't vouch that all of these are correct, but Tintdude has a good summary of the max allowed in each state Link here

First of all, Pocky - your car sucks, mine is better...

Anyway, here's pics of my tint - Formula One Pinnacle 35% all around (except for front windshield). The first is in a high-sunlight condition, picture taken at about noon...


Second picture is a lower light condition, picture in mid-evening...
