    I just switched from 30% tint to 5% front windows and 15% rear tinted glass and 5% on rear window. And I think it’s looks perfect besides night time driving. What percentage you got and have you ever pulled over because of tint?

    5% (installed by previous owner).
    Too dark for my liking but fun for now :thumbsup:
    Eventually will be replaced with 20% up front and might keep it darker in the back.

    I feel like I need to do windshield tint too. Any recommendations ?? I don’t want too dark but I want to reduce heat too.

    Says the one with, "5% tint so you can't see up in my window." I would suggest anywhere from 50% - 80%. Me personally, I got 70% on my windshield.

    I did 5% ceramic all around except for the windshield which I did 30% ceramic. Didn't bother with the sunroof since I can just close the slider.

    That's what I have, the Air 80. I see soooo many vehicles with the windshield alot darker. My CRX has 35% on the windshield and you can't see crap at night in the rain. If I ever redo it, it'll be considerably lighter.

    I did the Air Series 90. It’s perfectly clear. The Air Series 80 has a slight bluish tint to it. The heat reduction of the 90 is still super impressive.

    I personally like Llumar, but 3m and a couple others make good tint also. Make sure you go to a Llumar Pro dealer as they will be able to sell the FormulaOne line, as those are found at the Pro dealers only.

    In the FormulaOne line they have Pinnacle and then Stratos which is their top of the line above Pinnacle. Depending on the dealer, the Stratos can get pretty expensive. But man is it ever worth it. I can't believe how much heat it gets rid of and knocks down. Buy once, cry once so they speak.

    I have never had a tint or protectant on the front windshield, but the Llumar Air 80 seems like o be the popular choice. My buddy had it on his truck and I do not recognize the blue color to it, but some do. Many people are now doing Stratos 70 on front windshields.

    I usually go no darker than 20% max on windows. Anything darker it can get challenging in dark or bad weather to some people.

    Non on the front.
    Factory on the back.
    In NY you cant have tint on the front so if you need to pop a cap you have to do it from the back seat now.

    One of the previous owners put 10% on the rear and back sides, I put Llumar Air 80 on the fronts and windshield.
    What a difference! $250 for the Air 80 & install in Pasadena!

    20% on front sides. Looks the same as factory on a cloudy day; lighter when the sun comes out. What % is factory tint in the rear?
