Why do u want to debadge your car?

Is the tint % the same all over or it varies? I live in Alberta, Canada so how much tint can I afford?

I debadge because I like the clean look.

tint % really depends on you, laws varies by location as well. cost is usually the same, I've never gotten limo tint but 50%, 35%, 20% all cost the same from my experience.

Debadging makes the car look better in my opinion as well as doesn't get in the way when washing and paint maintenance. Just use a search engine to find that out or give your local police station a call. Much faster and more accurate than waiting for a reply on here.

Debadging is just a personal preference for many people...I could personally care less if I'm debadged or not. As for the tint it depends where you live and what the laws say about it. As for me I have limo tint on the back 3 windows and my driver and passenger are just one shade lighter then limo.

There was some glue left but I had some glue solvent that the dealer gave me. Not the strongest stuff but worked well. You can probably just ask your dealer for some the next time you go in for a service. They just put some in an empty water bottle and gave it to me when I went to pick up my dash cover.
