My dad likes the deal so were goin to get it monday or tuesday. I also am interested in getting tint within the next few weeks. What % do u think looks the best on MSM???

I have 24% in the front, 20% in the back. A cop assured me of it and tried to give me a ticket for it, then I told him it was stock and he got pissed, but gave me a warning.

No not out the door, no navi. But the car being certified and low miles is important.

I live in Missouri and the law is 35% on the front, but i dont think ill go that light. Im also not going to get two diffent %s. I just think that silver is one of the only colors that doesn't look good with extremely dark tint. Do they make 10%???

I think you should be able to bring the price down a little more, I purchased my 2003 MSM w. 21k miles for $23.8k out the door 6 months ago.

And I think my MSM (silver) looks great with dark tints! But to each his own.

When i say extemely dark tint i mean 5% so im looking for somethin a little lighter no more than 25 prolly. MY friend has around 10 or so and you can atleast see the figure of his upper body through the side window, thats about what i want.

Thanks Wisky, but it seems that retail for them in my area is higher for some reason. Ive been looking for about a year and this is by far the best deal yet. BTW how much is your drop??

My tint is 5% I think, I purchased the car from a Nissan dealer who said a police officer owned the car before me; which is why he could get away with such dark tint.

My drop is Tein Htech springs which drop the car about 1.3 inches all around.
