that sucks. usuially in the states, the law states that the tinting on the front windows either has to be light, or none at all. from the way i understand it, if a cop cant clearly(and i mean clearly) see you, your screwed

it's a state by state thing. cali for example, legal is 70% on the fronts while the backs have no limit.
