I'm getting my windows tinted, on my zx4, at a local shop that does good work (also just $140). Info I can find online states the limit in Texas on front/back sides is 25%.

So, I was thinking 35% front sides, 25% rear sides. Should I tint the back 25% or would that be too dark to see out at night? Also, should I get a strip on upper front windshield, and at what %?


Anyway, let me know what you have and if you like it, might help others in same predicament I'm in. Thx.

On my cavy and soon my focus.. I have 35% on the front and 15% in the back. I highly recommend 15% for the back and it is not dark at all. It helps at night when people keep their freakin' brights on..grr!

I have 35% on mine... just look in my photo gallery... I'm not very happy with it myself... I'd prefer 20% or maybe 5%. I may have it redone next year.

I was thinking of 18% platinum tint all around.I'm still wondering what it would look on a sonic blue tho.Platimun tint has a lil bit of mettallic on it.It looks hot with a silver car.BMW owner live to talk about.[:p]
