when i get pulled over, i roll my windows down and stick both hands out the window until the cop approaches. the popo where i live love that, they always ask have i been pulled over in chicago?? and then laugh a lil and then you pretty much know you're not getting a ticket hahah

in IL, the past approx 365 days, i've been pulled over i think 21 times? the past 2 years 26ish, and from when i first started when i was 16, about 30 times. i'm 20 now, in 4 years about 30 times being pulled over, 1 speeding ticket, in indianapolis. 81 in a 50 cuz it was the highway, but apparently dropped super slow.
i did totally call that i would get my first speeding ticket in my very first my own car, my SVT haha. good times. most recent time being pulled over was 2 fridays ago. i was in between messing with my exhaust, so it was super loudd cuz i had my ORP on and was waiting on a resonator. it sounds good now and now blaring loud.
my most impressive streak was 3 times being pulled over in 3 weeks, 2 coming within 3 days of each other haha

Lol in ND I got pulled over 56 in a 40, residential area kinda, and it was a 16 dollar ticket.
anyways, I want a windshield bar 5%, and then 5% all around, what do you think? and how much do you guys usually pay? Ive been quoted at 300 around here for everything on the car

Delaware law is 75% for the front windows and anything you want for the rear. Should I even bother tinting? I'm worried just tinting the back would look dumb. Also are those pre-cut ebay kits any good?

300 bucks? Wow that's expensive. I just paid $160 for 15% all around LLumlar metalized film with lifetime warranty.

I've never worried about illegal tint. I've lived in 6 states and always had darker than legal tint and never had a problem in my over 20 years of driving. Like the others said, just roll down your windows if you're pulled over. I know some of the northern states are real nazis, but I've never had a problem anywhere in the south.

I did 5% on the rear doors and back windows. And had 50% done on the fronts. Bar across the top of the windshield is illegal here. Originally was $225, got it done for $175 at Coastline Motorsport in Woodland Hills, CA

That looks good. Thinking of doing the same. I'll be the one person to get stopped ten times for illegal tint.

The back can go all the way to 0%, as long as it's non-reflective.

I was thinking maybe doing
50% Driver/Passenger
20% Rear and back seats

What do you guys think?
On mine, I just tinted the front windows. In the back, I got a can of gloss black spray paint and painted the insides of all the other windows including the hatch area.

You just have to be careful not to get paint on the seats.
