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 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.
