Nice, the 35% tint is perfect IMO. Not too dark or light

Should have gone darker, people can still see you day time, or would anymore be illegal in your state?

Actually it is darker than what is legal in Ohio. 50% is the maximum here. There is an exception if you have a note from you Optometrist, which I luckily have.

I have 35% on the fronts and 20% on the rear/back windows in NYC, surprisingly the cops have yet to pull me over

I guess I've just been lucky. I mostly roam in the upper west side bronx (near riverdale), east mid town (79-70th st) and rockland county... whenever I see a cop though I lower the music and drive like an angel.

That's why I went with 40% on my wife's car. Since the car comes with a certain percentage of tint from the factory. Add the 40% tint,it is still considered illegal in CT. What a bunch of Bull, but?

looks great.

If you don't mind me asking, how much $ did the tinting run you? I've been told the TL needs specials carbon fiber tints because of the rear window antennas or something.

How much is the tint? Do you get it from Acura dealer store or local retails?
