I went with 20% all around with a brow. Leaving windshield alone to avoid the local cops here getting to angry. They seem to pick on me. Local guy did it for 160 with a year warranty. SolarGuard I believe. Ignore the dent under the gas door. ( Courtesy of an inconsiderate driver that did not leave a note or anything.)

^^ Looks great with the grey

Here's a quick question - anyone know why all the drive ways in the US are made of block concrete? Seems like a hassle and it chips and cracks easily with grass and weeds growing up. Here they are all black asphalt unless you want interlocking stones or something. Just something I've noticed in all of the tinting pics.

Sorry to hear about that douche driver! If it makes you feel better I wouldn't have noticed unless you pointed it out.

It looks great!!

Thanks, couldn't believe it the other morning when I got up and walked out to my car. Not 100% Sure but I was told that they were done that way so when the ground settles it minimizes the amount of cracks. The blocks tend to separate instead of the driveway just getting a massive crack I guess.

I'm debating getting a very light brow across the windshield since the sunvisors are a bit too small. That'd be it though.

I always hear people say they got "35% in NC" where the limit is 35. The factory glass would put them below the limit wouldn't it?
where in nc are you trying to get it done? i got a guy here in asheville that did mine. used to own a tint shop and its very reliable when you can get him on the phone

The lower number is darker, so you mean it the other way around, right?
