Curious how far everyone else prefers their front strip.



FL law is the AS1 line but at the AS1 line there is no point in having tint at all as it will not block anything.

AS1 line is for solids only. Nothing solid past that point. At least in Ontario Canada.. Tint can go farther, to the point where it's not in direct view from the drivers seat. Again, that'll be the cops discretion, just like everything else here.

Here in Madison, WI I paid $250 for lifetime warranty Luminar tint - 20% rear, 35% front, 15% windshield..they came down 3-4 inches below the AS1 line.

I've had numerous cars done at this place, all of them flawless.

They usually tax all goods and services here other than raw food items (well food from the grocery store et al).
