Very nice ... I'm heading to the tint shop first thing tomorrow to get 35% fronts and 20% everything behind driver. I can't wait!

OK ... I got my tint done today!
Scots Sun Control in Bangor did the job, it is an owner / operator small shop. The guy is meticulous and did an excellent job. 35% VLT (post tint) up front with 20% applied to all glass behind the driver.

Here is a picture ... the tint isn't as dark as it looks, I guess it was the lighting. I'll post another (better one) once I switch over to summer wheels and give 'er a spring coat of wax.

Getting tint done this Friday March the 30th. Getting the % around 20 depends what shades they have. Llumar CTX or Suntek Carbon XP is still a "gametime decision" will post pics though!

Looks good DDM. Is that the limit for us in Missouri? Can you see out the back window well enough at night?

Missouri's limit is 35% on the front windows. There is no limit on the back ones. I decided 15% because on my previous car I went as dark as possible so I could not see out. This tint is manageable. The back up sensors are a nice help too haha
