    That sucks! What was your tint % ? CA is really strict about tint which sucks, my windshield is tinted with 50% tint and a 5% strip, my front windows are 15% and rear are 5% cops in FL don’t really care about it, but I have a permit though so I don’t care either lol but I have a buddy with 15% all around and his windshield tinted 35% on the whole thing and he hasn’t been pulled over since he had it done 3 years ago, I personally think thats too dark though.

    I made a left turn and the light was red and the cop was on the side of the curb. He stopped what he was doing and told me to pull over. Not really a way out of it and I wasn't going to drive off.
    Yours looks pretty dark as well, but mine was 30%, no way I would go lower than that. I had it for about 4-6 months. It is definitely illegal, I was aware of that when putting it on, but I didn't know much about tint so I just went with it and stuck with it. I knew it was a matter of time until I got a fix it ticket. Not sure if I would bother redoing it at 50%+. Here was mine at 35%

    tinted glass can't see anything, only a problem in CA-I would file a counter complaint of harassment especially if the car was all ready inspected and passed!

    That doesn’t look much darker than mine, what are your side windows? Personally if you want to avoid being pulled over again yet you want the protection to your interior do a 70% on the entire windshield, Its clear enough to go unnoticed but strong enough to protect you from the sun, my dad has it on his CRV, I’ll get you a picture later to show you.

    Yes, every state actually has that form. You just have to have a doctor fill it out and then you send it to the DMV, they will mail you back a certificate. There is no limit to the tint % with that permit (atleast in FL) I could do 5% all around including the windshield but that’s just ridiculous.

    It does look similar, I may go 70% with a tint strip in the future. All the other tint that is on my car has been there since I got it so I'm not too sure. I may have all the tint removed and get it re-tinted. Some place near me quote $160 for all the windows excluding the moon roof and front window with a lifetime warranty. I haven't really shopped around so I might look into other places, but the prices seems more than fair.

    I drove the STi yesterday since the weather was nicer but then it got cloudy, windy and cooler :/ I took her to the local Subaru Meet last night and then took her back to her secret location this morning to be stored :giggle:

    Sure but it's not a regular thing I'll listen to though. I'm not sure if you've heard of Ghost but I saw them a few months ago. They are more Heavy Metal though.
