The dealership I bought my Titanium at had the tint already on the car and it comes with a lifetime guarantee. It makes the car look sharp.....white tricoat outside with black leather on the inside...

In the last pic, that's my grandfather's Focus in front of mine lol he told me for years to get one and so to spite me bought one himself. Now he can't stand it. Then I bought a 2012 and he's thinking of upgrading now
Man I like those rims. Been wanting to see what a black focus looks like black on black. Thanks for posting!

They can claim too dark, but unless it's *really* raining, and the car doesn't have any lights on, and it's dark out...you should have no trouble. As long as the car has some lights on, or it's not midnight, or it's not storming relentlessly, you should be able to see it fairly well. If not, don't get tint that dark :)

KOBasinger: No problem :) Glad you like them!

If you get in a wreck just peel off the tint and claim that you never had it:)

I have 20% all the way around and love it. It's past legal, but I wanted more privacy than the 50%F/35%R that Wisconsin allows. It's fine at night, especially with the auto-adjusting mirror.

The last two pictures I took today (4/23/12) after lowering it on Sat with H&R Sport lowering springs and debadged it.

20% it's not as dark as it looks, but I'm satisfied.

Nice ... and welcome. Tint on a white / lighter colored vehicle just looks excellent.
