Va cops are pricks about it. On my old ride, I had tint, legal all around, but still got pulled over twice for it. No tickets, but still, getting pulled over for nothing is pretty stupid.

I got pulled over in VA while visting my in-laws for my tint and the cop told me I had to take it off. I said I was from out of town and would be going home in a couple days (lived in ohio at the time and had ohio plates on my car). He told me it didn't matter and that I had to meet all of VA's laws while in VA. I kind of got in to it with him and told him there is no way in hell all cars from diffrent states had to comply with VA laws while driving through the state of VA. I told him to arrest me or let me go and he actually said get the hell out of here. I told him thanks and no hard feelings and he just stormed off. So point of story is.......yes VA cops are pricks.

Thanks for the advice. My girlfriend's ex got pulled over for illegal tints and they took a razor to his windows, that's bullshit but what can you do. I'm going to talk to some shops this week and see what they say I can get away with. I'll let you know what I find out.

Well, I only had enough time to visit one shop for a quote and they told me $208 for all windows, whatever % I want, and a 5 year warranty....that seems a little pricy, but does that sound about right?

i dont have any of my windows tinted yet but one of my friends in high school has about 20% tint all the way around his grand am. He lives in bridgeport were there is a state police post right across the street from our school and he said that after 2 years of tint he never got pulled over.

I made an appoinment to have my tints done this Saturday and I've decided to tint the front driver and passanger windows too. I'm just debating on what % for the back windows. On the fronts I'm doing 35%, but I'm not sure about the little and rear windows. I'm thinking about going one shade lighter than limo on those three. Let me know what you guys think. Thanks.
