First off, according to Louisiana LRS 32.361.1 states that the legal limits of the sun screening device (window tint) on a passenger car are light transmissions of 40% for the front side windows, 25% for the rear side windows and 12% for the rear windshield.

I need some pics of focus (black foci but any will help) of all tint %.

Post your foci with the Tint specs please.

To keep it legit in Showroom, here is a pic of my foci as it sits now:

I voted to keep it legal but I like the darker look of dark tint







My ride is 35% front %20 rear and %5 limo on the back. Which is legal in Texas
I don't like tint law sometimes but it's not worth the possible ticket if you know what I mean. That and I have giant cop magnet that SCREAMS "pull me over" on the front of my car so I try to follow all laws when possible. So far I have managed to stay Ticket free.

Also the law is written as %35 light through the window, and the window has a small amount of tint to it so that can effect the sensors for testing.

Matt you should post up a pic of your tint since it's a black FoFo.

I like the look of the darker tint. I know I want to go darker, but I read the NC law won't let tint be lower than 35%. But I might just say [:)][:)][:)][:)] it lol

Matsuo, can you do me a huge favor. Sometime tomorrow post a side pic of your foci?

Also VonKrause, can you do it too?

What would you fellow FF would suggest?


Louisiana laws for tint sucks... 40% is basically nothing. I've used 35% and that sucks. I can deal with 20% rear, but I want 20% all around. My civic i used to have had 5% all around and that was in florida, but I NEVER got pulled over.

I voted to make it darker.
Go to your Doctor and see if He will make a official notice that tint is required for You.
Ive heard of people doing it here in Pa.

I've heard that before, me being military, they wont issue that out though. Then I'd be a pointless soldier...

While I would never officially advise you to do anything illegal I would advise you to tint it darker than legal.

It has to be a bored cop that is going to hit you with a tint ticket.

Dedbent. Same wheels =/. U should change them. I had them first lol. 55% Is pointless. 35% Looks alright but I know I'll regret it. May go 30/20/15
