Looks like the sun breaking through the trees is the culprit to this conundrum. My 2 cents!

washingtin state tint law...you might also google the state site itself to be sure...
Looks like they are more forgiving than michigan, we are not supposed to tint the front windows at tall, except for the top four inched of the windows...woopteedo!

no i tried washing my car with bleach. Didnt work out very well



it is the sun shinning through the trees. my car is race red. I think it looks orange because its on a cell phone camera. my buddy's honda in the back is a darker red which probably doesnt help

I think you just made him a few bux

Also, if anyone w/20% on the hatch can chime in an comment on how dark it really is @ night that would be great!
I don't know about 20%, but I have 13% and it's pretty dark at a night. As in, if there aren't lights on it I usually can't see it too well. Then again I only have it on all my back windows, so I'm not normally looking that way, anyway. That's what the rear-view camera is for =P

I'm thinking about taking my car back in and getting the 50% front windows lowered to 30% or so and something put on the windshield. Just not sure how much it would cost...
