I'm getting my windows tinted to MA legal standards, 35% tint, was wondering if someone who had this or something close to this could show me a picture, just so I have an idea. Appreciate it.

my parents used to live in B-town. My dad had a problem with car, and it took him about an hour to realize his started was messed up after the mechanic tried to explain that the problem was with his "stahhh-dahhh" haha.

back to the tint: My gf has a black 06 ZX3, post some pics after you tint, maybe it will help me convince her to tint hers too

35%? I went 5% Limo tint all around and I am telling you it is the ONLY way to go. It looks incredible. Although on an overcast day you have to turn on your gauge lights...

If I could I'd like to go lower, but I don't feel like running into legal issues, which I already will have to worry about in NY and PA with 35% on the front windows.

Besides the pictures of 35% seem just fine. Actually all of your cars look very nice. Appreciate it everyone.

My 95 Escort GT I use to own I went 35% on the 2 front windows and 20% on the back 3 windows and it looked pretty good. Anybody going with 35% on any of the back windows should reconsider. Because if I had to do it again I should have got 35% on the fronts and 5% on all the rear windows. 5% on the rear windows looks so good that when I bought my 2004 ZTW I got 5% on all the back windows and nothing on the fronts and it looks sweet.

you will get pulled over with a 5% in PA, Also, i think on our cars, at least the 2005+ have a slight tint on the back windows and rear windows (could just be the hatches though). I think the factory tint on those windows is like 75% or so, cause my back windows do look slightly darker than my fronts, and i got the same all around.

You mean you guys can't go any darker then 35% on any window???? That's brutal. So if you guys throw on some 35% all around and then a Dodge Caravan pulls up beside you with darker windows then you've got, how does that make you feel? Where I live there is no law on how dark any of your back seat or rear windows can be, but I do know that if you go any darker then 35% for the fronts, there could be trouble.

35% of visible light must be passing through the window if that helps to clarify
