The tint is cumulative. If there is factory tint already and you add tint the combined total cannot be less than 25% light transmission. Anything below 25% and you fail.

on a 4 door/sedan.... driver and passenger door have to be 25% and the back doors and rear window can be limo... front windshield can only be 5 inches down from the top or to the AS1 line, even if smaller then 5 inches, which ever comes first, the AS1 line's or the 5 inches.... I'm a State Inspector....

I use Angel Auto Glass on Atascocita Road in Humble.... he did my entire Sedan for $150, all 4 doors, back glass, and front window, i did 35% on front doors and 20% on back end, wish i would of done the limo instead....

Sunscreening devices applied to the windshield can't be blue, red, or amber in color.

On the windshield, sunscreening devices must be applied above the AS-1 line. If the vehicle does not have an AS-1 line, the car tint must end five inches below the top of the windshield.

tint can be as dark as u want on the eyebrow....

This is as of Feb. 2012,

Here is what is allowed in Texas window tint law:

Windshield
Non-reflective tint is allowed along the top of the windshield above the manufacturer's AS-1 line OR on the top 5 inches of the windshield.

Front and Rear Side Windows
The Visible Light Transmission percentage (VLT%) for the front passenger and driver windows are required to have more than 25% of light being able to come into the vehicle. There are no regulations on what the legal tint must be, neither for the rear window nor for the back passenger and driver windows. The customer can have any level of darkness applied.

Rear Window
Any VLT can be applied legally on this window.


HOW REFLECTIVE CAN THE TINT BE ON AUTO WINDOWS ACCORDING TO TEXAS WINDOW TINT LAW?

Tinting film can contain metallic elements (silver mirror look) that help to reflect incoming light and reject the glare and heat generated by visible light.


Front Side Windows

Must not be more than a total of 25% reflective. Silver mirror look.

Back Side Windows
Must not be more than a total of 25% reflective. Silver mirror look.


OTHER TEXAS RULES AND REGULATIONS

Restricted Colors
The tint colors of RED BLUE AMBER are not allowed by state law.

Side Mirrors Dual side mirrors are required if back window is tinted.

Certificate Requirements
Manufacturers of film need to certify the film they sell in the state. Ask your dealer if they are using certified film.

Sticker Requirements
The sticker to identify legal tinting is required between the film and glass on each tinted window.

Medical Exemption
Texas window tint law allows medical exemptions for special tint. For more details about the specific terms of the exemption for window tinting, consult your state law.
