    Given Cali's stance on laws and rules, I'm surprised you're allowed to have 5% tints on the vehicle anywhere

    Yeah given Californias reputation, it always sort of surprises people. Basically, here is CA tint law:

    Rear window: No restrictions. You could literally paint it black if you wanted, but you must have 2 outside mirrors.

    Rear side windows: No restrictions. Again, you could literally paint it black.

    Front side windows: 30% is the maximum legal tint.

    Windshield: No tint allowed whatsoever.

    So basically i'm only risking it on the front windows, and the 20% isn't THAT dark. The reward of how it looks FAR outweighs the risk of getting a ticket. Sexy sexy car with the tints.

    Follow these links for a couple more pics of the tint (lighting was a bit harsh for the cell phone camera)

    Imported I assume?
    Actually it is in New Zealand, that is where my family lives. It is also difficult because of import rules. I have posted a lot of pictures on the forum over time, I have some in the members gallery search in #2 for 22B05STI and also pictures from my New Zealand trip, which I did a thread for and also an album on my user page. I guess if you search 22B05STI you will find them. I should organise them properly but I have started a thread on the 22B now and posted a couple.

    Awesome! I'll check it out. 22B's are sex. Plain and simple...and the fact that not many people have ever seen one in person is even cooler.

    I have, however seen one in person at the Philly Auto Show back in 2008

    Wow...that thing is nasty. I can't even come up with words for it.


    On a different note....Here's my new Rex not 10 minutes after I drove it off the lot. Needs a wash bad, just got back from Florida and I'm going to tend to it before I drive home! I know it looks like it's three colors lol, it's just dirty from the wet roads.



    First mod is going to be a Tanabe exhaust system.

    The blackout looks good but the LEDs, not so much IMO. Its your car, so you like them and that's fine of course. Its just not something I like. Its not a BMW, Porsche, or Audi...

    I think if I did the halo.. Id' skip the strip.. or vice/verse. Both I think is overkill.. but, the work is clean man. Nice job!
    I've been toying with working some LED's in to use for my drl's instead of the high beam bulb. I need to study the wiring diagrams and see how tough it would be to separate em. The strips at the bottom of the light (think 3G light) in a more flat white/warm white color would be super trick for drl use.
