My experience GA is fairly lenient as long as they can see the driver and passengers through the front windows. But it only takes one officer with an attitude about it to ruin your day if they feel like it.

Here is a dirty shot of my S. I have a brow and the back windows done, all at 5%. I want to do the front but I will be pulled over constantly. I know I can get a piece of paper from my doctor saying that I have pre skin cancer. That would only get me out of the fix it ticket, not from being pulled over. Anyways here she is.

Plasti-dip or paint on your wheel covers? (Looks good!)

I will be picking up my new Focus Hatchback in a week or so in Ottawa. I would like to know where you had the work done for your Windows. Dealer is offering to have it done and charge my their invoice price no added profit. What would you recommend? Merci

Nice tint everyone!

I have those wheels in the painted/machined...but I may have to pick up a set of those 17s in the graphite as spares...they look incredible!

Shop around a bit on that - unless the dealer is warrantying it as well or will include it in your financing - if that matters to you.

In the states, it would be around $185-$300 to walk into a shop and get it done. An installer might invoice the dealer at $200 and the dealer tacks on $400 for the price of the install. So the dealer invoice price might not be as good as what you can get on your own.

On one hand I wish I had gotten 30% on the ws, but the 30% all around and 50 on the ws means its not too dark even at night. Although I probably should have taken it back to the shop, there are still a few areas on the windshield I'm not thrilled about. Especially not for the cost/ price.

Mine wanted $600 for crappy generic dyed tint. I paid $350 for formula 1 ceramic from the best shop in the city. If I didn't have a warranty, I'd never go back to the dealer again.
