Tint Tomorrow!! Need Your Opinion! Just took PICS looks great!

tomorrow at 2 im getting my windows tinted at the tint shop in rochester, i have a silver SE im probley only gonna go 50% because of state laws but maybe 35% not sure yet, but i need your opinion, the tint shop does custom graphics in the tint and i was thinking of getting "focus" accross the back window its only like another $40 to do that and i thought it would look pretty cool and its not that bad of a price, so let me know what you would think

It's ok, but only if it's tasteful. Like, say, a banner on the top of the back glass. Or maybe a banner in the front would be better. Aslo, unless you have some sort of performance mod, a lot of people will call ricer on this one.

I'd say go for it. I got 50% and it's ok.. If I'd of known how light it was I would have gone 35%.

A banner in the tint? Not cool.... Go for straight tint, if you want to get a banner, just put one over it. Graphics belong on the body IMO

I voted just tint.

Personally I love the clean look without the graphics.

dont get the banner...there tacky. i really cant stand when people get what ever model car they have bannered arcross there front window. if you get anything get something like...steeda or somesort of brand like that that you might have in your car. and for 50%...eh that is really light...they only allow 35 here also but no one goes by it. ive never heard of someone getting pulled over for tint. my back windows are 4 percent my front ones are 20...no problems with the law

Go with a darker tint too. If it is already going to be illegal, then go big. The darker the better in my opinion. I love my 5% tint. I get compliments on it all the time.

I think just a tinit would be cool, put a banner decal over the tint, it'll be cheaper and if you dont like it you can take it off rather then having to get the whole thing redone

I say go 35% all around. It is dark enough to look good , but not to dark to get pulled over.
But if you do decide to go 50% , you should go 50% on the sides and 35% on the back window...... because if you dont it will look like the back window has no tint when you look threw the back window to the front. If you look from side to side, you are looking threw two windows that have tint. I live in Ohio and we also have a 50% window tint law. And I have no problem with the 35% tint. I am planning on tinting my Focus real soon. My T-Bird has 35% tint if you want to check it out in my pictures.
Keep us posted with what you go with.
