Thanks for the compliments about my car, I got my windows tinted at a place my roxies night club on Bennett,

I'm getting a titanium sedan that comes with lots of gizmo's in the doors as you guys are all well aware.
Anyone?

Blackraven,

Try this...go to a high end dealer (Merc, BMW, Audi, etc.) and ask them where they have their cars tinted. That's what I did, and they pointed out the best shop in the area to have it done.

That red really pops with the green background. Nice pics and it looks good with the tint. Too bad the styling detail of the tail lights gets a little lost and blends in with the red paint. All in all, sweeeet!

I have to say I don't quite believe you. I have 50% on the front 2 and 13% on the rest...and it's impossible to see anything through the 13% windows at night unless there's a light on it. I can see cars because of their headlights (can't see anything else on them) but a person could stand 15ft behind my car and I wouldn't see them at all, except for the rearview camera.

That's the other thing though...if I didn't have the rearview camera I don't know if I would have gone 13%. The camera can see *very* well in the dark (a few times I've even see it switch to Infrared...something I can tell after spending many years in the photography world), but without it I wouldn't be able to see *anything* that didn't have headlights.
