    yeah thats how i was able to get away with my 20%... i had a gf who was legally blind, so i was able to get my windows tinted 30% more than the legal limit for VA. i didnt go more than that cus i live in a quiet neighborhood with no lights. so i couldnt see down my own driveway.

    Tint in California

    Any tint on the two front windows in California is illegal, California Highway Patrol will stop you in a heart beat. They will even give their Mama's a ticket. Well guess what screw the cops I have limo all around front and rear plus a limo sunvosir on my front windshield. Here in California its also called a Fix-a-ticket, just removed the tint and CHP will sign it off.

    I've got the sides (f/r) and the rear all at 10%... and the windshield at 60%.. Yes.. you read that right. The front is tinted



    It's enough that you get a good reflection from the side, but directly head on, you can easily see the driver/passenger.

    I had 35% up front and 20% in back on my WRx and got away with it for 2 years. A friend of mine got busted for 50% up front.

    I won't be tinting my windows again though, not worth the stress watching for cops and rolling them down in time. It does look so nice though.

    I may have more leeway living in the desert. There are a lot of cars up here that are tinted in the front.

    negative.

    NYS = sedans = no tint whatsoever
    NYS = SUVs = rear windows only

    The only sedans allowed to have tints are those with permits (people can apply for a permit to have tints) and LIVERY vehicles are allowed to have their REAR windows tinted.

    The minimum light transmittance through a window is 70%. From the factory, the window permits only 70% transmittance (does solar tint ring a bell?). You cant see it, you cant really tell, but have you ever noticed that when you close the window, sunlight doesnt burn as much? Ever notice the green shade the window has? Thats the tint property of the window.

    Dont believe me? look up the NYS VTL. How do i know? i work for the bastards.
