I have 35% all the way around on my Matador red IS and I love it. Not too dark, but not too light. I was considering using 50% but after looking a few cars it was way too light.

Gorgeous! Have another cube of rep for kindly posting those pics, mine should look about 15 percent less clean than that, since I can only tint to 35 Is there a tint law in your state?

BTW, how are those summer tires working in your climate? I'm half wondering if I can pull it off with my summers, you have a 2nd vehicle to drive in the bad weather though right?

There is a tint law in my state, and it's the same as yours. I have friends who have 20% tint all the way around and windshield tint, that have been pulled over. They have yet to get a warning for their tint, so I guess I'm taking my chances. The summer tires are working out decent so far, but suck very badly on snow. My car got stuck on a patch of ice on my driveway, hahaha So I drive my old Corolla whenever they call for any kind of frozen precipitation. I think next year I'll get Winter Tires or All-Seasons.

BTW Your car looks sweet, saw the pics

What do the cops do, just give them a verbal warning?

Thanks for the props on my car, probably reminds you VERY much of yours. BTW, I still love the G35 Coupe, but side by side, I was amazed how similar they really are in size. Did you guys ever take anymore pics besides the ones you posted?

35% smoked tint would look good crystal white.

Whats up guys, I'm kinda a newb here, but i've been searching for awhile now, but got a question on the tint. If I tint the windows on my 350, will the radio reception be affected by it? Probably a stupid question, but I've had friends who have had antennas along their rear windows and lost use of their radios due to tint.

anything less than 5% is a waste of money and time.
