    16 near Birmingham? I got them at a place called Detail Express in Keego Harbor. They do really good work and were just finishing a Panamera Turbo so that kind of sealed the deal lol

    How many inches thick is the windsheild strip? I am thinking about getting it also, but I dont want it to be hideous. IMO yours looks pretty good and kinda hidden.

    Ok thanks. Still doesnt look bad at the angle either. I havent decided if I am going to do it yet or not. I always deal with the sun coming right in between the visor and rear view mirror in my late afternoon travels. I am not much of a sunglasses person so this will help if I decide to do it. My car is red so thats why I am not sure if I will like it or not.

    So glad to see this thread worked out well. Lots of great pix to see for help in the decision making process.
    I ended up getting 30% all around from Auto Creations in Somerville NJ. They did a great job at a fair price. Recommended. Also, a full lifetime warranty that they service.
    I made a few before and after pix for comparison. Time of day wasn't the same, and overall brightness outside was different, but it gives you a good idea of the change from stock.





    The thumbs will take you to full size pix.

    I like the 30%. In NJ tint is a secondary offense now, but you can't have the front door windows done (no restrictions on the others). 30% is a nice dark without getting too much attention from LEOs.

    I know its all about looks on the outside, But would anyone or a few of you with different % of tint take a few pics from the inside out? Mostly looking for the 30, 35% range. I dont know if it will workout. I was just wondering how dark some of these are when looking out.

    Due to the metering of the camera, it will be very difficult to get a good shot of the inside that would actually be helpful. Not that we can't try, but I suspect the better way is to find a friend with a tint and sit in their car...

    I wasnt sure if it would be difficult to get a good shot or not. The only vehicles I know that has tint is my wifes jeep, Which I have no idea the % on it. I only have 1 other friend with tint and he has the darkest possible you can get and thats not even close to what I want. If its not going to work out then its not a big deal. I just thought I would ask before I got mine done in a few weeks.
