2012+ Window Tint in Cali

Hey everyone,
How dark of a tint do you guys have on your windows? I was thinking of doing 35% all around. Can you guys post pics of your window tints so I can determine how dark I wanna get them? Thanks.

You can tint your rears as dark as you want. Front Driver, Passenger and Windshield(except small portion on top) cannot be tinted at all.

I currently have limo (5%) on my three rear windows but this is my 03 ZX3. Anything darker and I wouldn't be able to see out the back at night very easy.

BLACKOUT TINT in La Verne is really good. Miguel is the owner. Quality work at a decent price. It's on Arrow Highway just west of Gary Ave on the North side of the street.

Legally we aren't suppose to have the front windows any darker than 75% I believe. Believe it or not, some people do get pulled over for their dark window tint but most people do not. Not sure if the police are picking and choosing who they want or if there's some other reason for this.

It's not...after a google search...

"The windshield and front driver's side and passenger's side windows cannot receive any aftermarket tinting."

Oh...and I love the look of the new Foci! Your blue one looks nice!

Well, there you go. Tint at your own risk and thanks for the compliment. I'm loving the color too!

Colorado's are pretty laxed and are rarely ever enforced so it's legal to darken windows behind the driver's seat as dark as you want them IF the front windows, driver's side and passenger's side, along with the windshield are at least 70% (clear automobile glass with NO tint).

You can tint all of the windows in the car except the windshield to a maximum of 27%. Remember though that at no time, can your two front side windows be darker than 27%. Also, in Colorado no mirrored or reflective tint is allowed on any window of the vehicle.

I've heard from fellow enthusiasts that Cali can Cops can be a PITA when it comes to aftermarket parts.
