Angry New tint...not by choice

soooo after about a year and a half with my tint that i knew was too dark, i got pulled over and i got in trouble for it :(...well kinda, technically the cop was really nice....
the front registered at 30 and the rear registered at 15...legal limit here in mass is 35 all around.

i actually got pulled over for doing 45 in a 30...
he have me a written warning for the tint, told me it had to changed before the end of february
gave me a written warning for speeding
but gave me a 50 fine for modified exhaust lol


here it is with my old tint


and with the new tint, which should register legal on all 4 door windows, honestly its not as big of a difference as i thought it would be


o well, it feels good that my car is a lil somewhat more legal now

yup, i have been ticketed twice for illegal tint. It sucks because both time the reason i got pulled over was other things, so they give me two tickets each time. After the second tint ticket they gave me a repair notice, so the tint has come off to pass that inspection :( and i havent gotten around to putting it back on. maybe in the summer when i get tired of the sun.

You're lucky you can even have tint on your front windows. Our state is stupid and won't let us have any tint at all on the front windows.

I have been thinking about removing my tint because it's so dark. It's so dark that at night while I'm driving, I don't need to flip my rearview mirror to dull the lights in the car behind me. I've been pulled over once but just got a verbal warning.

Sucks that you had to go lighter. For me, my 30% isn't dark enough!

That's funny that a car club uses the "SHOCKER " as a sign ...
