A fix it ticket is normally a $20 to $25 court cost and a sign off first offense only, after that the court costs increase!!!!!!

Here is my Suntek 35% ceramic all the way around. I like the fact that it has a brownish color rather then black. Compliments the color of the car. I paid $350 for my ceramic with lifetime warranty. That $650 price you were quoted is high. As far as tinting the windshield, yes I know it is not legal but I honestly don't care. The heat and UV reduction are well worth it. I don't get a second look from local police. Maybe because their cars are tinted even darker.

Personally,
I don't own a vehicle that doesn't have the front window tinted. I usually go with 50-60%.

Wow didnt know tinting the front windshield was so popular! I will be re tingin my 2000, will look into this ceramic tint. 15% all around with maybe 50% on the windshield. How does it feel driving at night with the tinted windshield? The glare from oncoming traffic on some highways really hurts my eyes at night.

It is a noticeable difference on glare at night, to the point where you don't think about it. However i would still like to go to a 35% from my 50% (just afraid i'll get towed!)

+1, cuts down some glare at night. If you do 60-75% you will hardly notice its there. Biggest plus for me is the extra heat rejection and UV blocking during the day for those of us in primarily good weather states.

I also want it so people dont see me in the car

Ceramic coated tint is best for heat rejection? Good brands you would recommend?

I had a bad tint experience lol, I got 15% ceramic installed in back 5 recently. After an hour or so the Tint started stinking like bad chemicals, after 3 days still smells bad. After my complaining, they decided there going to pull it and reinstall a different brand. I told them they got a bad batch, better call their supplier, they tried to play it off, not on my watch...It actually looked good but there's a limit when it comes to smell, same goes for chicks riding in my car too, no antiperspirant no ride lol.

Actually thinking about ripping my 35% off the front this weekend and doing 15% like the old car, and even considering going to a 35% on the windshield like my friends RX I saw last weekend!! (looks real bad!)

Good point. I'll go 15% on the fronts so people can't see my face anymore and also have the same shop install my HID fogs.
