    2011/12's - Post your tint pics PLEASE!

    Just got a gift certificate for Xmas from the wife to get my 2011 DGM 5-door tinted. I'm trying to work out a few issues ...

    1. What to tint: I know NJ law says the back windows and rear window can be done, but the driver & passenger windows can not be done. Still, I think I'm going to to tint the fronts anyway (not the windshield, of course). I know I risk a ticket, but I can live with the risk if it's what I want.

    That said - how have NJ owners (or others with similar restrictions) done with their tint jobs and the law?

    2. Darkness - Darker looks better, but as always has its drawbacks. My thought is to get the shop to do the fronts at 35, the back windows at 20, and the rear window at 35. My thoughts are that it gives me a bit better view at night where I need it. I also figure it might give the car the visual appearance of not being tinted so much on the front windows, making it more LEO friendly.

    Has anyone out there tried having different levels on different windows?
    How happy are you with the darkness you chose?

    3. Pictures - I would love to see pictures of any and all tinted 2011/12s. Please, please, please post me some pics here and list the percentages you chose so I and anyone else interested can get a feel for how it looks with the different shades on different colors. I would love to see this turn into a big post as a resource for people with similair questions.

    Thanks for your input and pictures!

    Thanks. My last car I talked myself out of it, went with 15%, and was never happy with it. 5 is REALLY dark at night though. I need to upgrade my reverse lights, as they are hard to see now!

    Thanks to the posters so far - gives me a good idea what I'm looking for. Anyone ever tried different tints for different windows?

    And to those with 35 - any LEO issues or visibility issues?

    Nope, no LEO issues (35% is the limit in Mass). Been out of state a few times though with no problems. Nighttime visibility isn't an issue either.

    I have 50% on my front doors & windshield; 35% for the rest. My tint guy claims he did everything right, but every window looks the same. I actually like the look, so I haven't argued it with him. Here's a terrible pic of the windshield after a wash on a sunny day. Others to follow.
