    Go ahead and replace all the fluids in the rear diff, trans, engine oil, and go ahead and change the spark plugs. Those were all things I replaced the first or second week I got my car. May not have needed it, but the reassurance that it's been taken care of is worth the cost. Who knows when the last time those things were replaced or what kinds were used

    you should check with your local tint laws first. you dont want to go so dark that you're being pulled over every day for it. i've personally had 20% on all of my cars and have been happy w/ it.

    I put this in General Maintenance - have a look at the threads above for more info. You may also want to check out the tint threads in the Exterior & Appearance forum.

    Call up your local dealership with your VIN# and see if they have record of the 60K service being done. If it has not been done, get that done. Replace any fluids not accounted for in that service.

    Tinting over the legal limit is paying a shop to give a police officer a legal reason to pull you over and issue you a citation every time you take your vehicle on the road. Some municipalities/states are more lenient than others.

    If you get pulled over for your tint and simply pay the ticket, you will be flagged as "easy $$" by the local municipality if you live there.

    If you do choose to go over the legal limit, do so "responsibly" such that you reduce the chance of getting pulled over.
