    The tint is on! 35% all around. It looks good, but I wish our laws in MA allowed it to be a little darker (20% is the sweet spot for me).





    I'm pretty stoked about how it came out. To anyone that's around me, Mr. Tint in West Springfield are the guys that did the job. $130 for all 4 doors and the rear windshield. Not a bad deal.

    Looks nice - though I think you're right about going darker. Still, better to avoid any LEO issues.

    WRB is really growing on me...your car looks great. I agree, about 20% is the sweetspot on these cars, but you risk a ticket for sure. Keep us posted on your ride!

    I like the 35% it looks dark, but not too dark to attract unwanted attention.

    In my younger days I probably would have said screw it, throw the 20% on. I think in the long run I'll be happy I went the smarter route. And like Stu, I have my windows open a lot. Just not for the next 3-4 days. The curing period is killing me haha.

    Nice car & the tint looks great.I am risking it by doing 20%,but here in NY even 35% in illegal,so as long as I'm doing something illegal,might as well make it look good at the same time.

    Yeah I did 20% on my tC and I regret it... after a year or so, finally got that unwanted attention and having to get all that crap off sucked... 35% is just right.

    From New York Window Tint Law | TintCenter Window Tinting:

    Windshield Non-reflective tint is allowed on the top 6 inches of the windshield.
    Front Side Windows Must allow more than 70% of light in.
    Back Side Windows Must allow more than 70% of light in.
    Rear Window Any darkness can be used.
    Jeez I don't blame you one bit. I don't feel so bad anymore!

    It's growing on me. Before I went to work today I kinda just walked around the car scoping it out like I was going to steal it.
