Tinted windows picture thread

Hey, I'm planning on getting my car tinted this weekend. Can you guys please post up any pictures you have of your car with tints, I would like to see my options with how dark I would like the tints to be. I have no idea what % tint I should get. Also, I noticed that a lot of people don't have their graphite pearl accords tinted. My car is graphite pearl, will the tints look good on it? I hope so...

Can you see inside my windows of the car in my sig? That's 35/20/20 (front to rear). Not the best pic, but I'll try to post a few more if I can find any.

Front Passenger Side- 20% (The police don't mind it...I think.)
Rear Drivers Side- 5% (legal)
Rear Passenger Side- 5% (legal)
Rear Window- 5% (legal) [w/ black "outdoor" vinyl over the dot matrix)
Front Window- None



I really need a MoleSkin kit. I'll probably get one installed and get my front side windows re-tinted in the future.

The pic is with the moon roof open, so it is usually a bit darker..

3M. 20% is the tint on the Truck. This will give you the white car with tint perspective...although...just not on a Honda.



That was my old TL. It had 35%

^ I want a TL like that!

BTW, you probably want to tint your car around the legal limit. I would guess a shade or two darker wouldn't get you in trouble.

That looks so much darker than 20%....Must be the white on the truck that makes it look so much darker...

Looks good though...

Yeah...it's nobody's fault here on DA...unless you built my old TL....then I hate you. It really wasn't just the rattles...the other stuff failing sent me over the edge.

The 20% is darker, but I think the white plus the angle of the sun in my pictures makes it really dark. I lived in NM...so the darker the tint...the more comfortable the car. In CO...I went with 35% because that sun sure does feel good when it was 10 degrees outside.
