Yeah, but me and the thread starter both live in California, and tint on the front side windows is illegal. That's also is what larson (r0ng5) was talking about having to remove his.

Tint is high up on my to-do list thus my interest.

Also, you got a lifetime warranty on illegal tint (the sides)?
You can tint the back and rear windows however you'd like, but anything other than stock on the front is illegal. If you wanted to stay legal, you can always get a tint on the front that is invisible. The benefit to doing this is that it protects you from uv rays and keeps about 62% of the suns solar energy and heat out, which would be good when it's really hot. The windows would not look any darker though.

Ahh okay... So you went down the illegal path? I'm guessing that lifetime warranty wont hold up against a ticket lol =)

I like it a lot though, I may actually steal your exact numbers for when I get it done. =)

Thanks, I'm pretty sure that the warranty stays true no matter what. Hopefully I will never get pulled over because of the tint. I don't know how true this is, but I heard that 95% of the time someone gets a ticket for tint, is because they were already being pulled over for something else.
