Had my front door windows tinted. Love it. Didn't go as dark as factory tint on back windows because I don't want the police on me.
States have laws restricting the amount of tint allowed for the front windows..In Texas it is 25%Go 18% on the front door windows as it matches the rear. When you see the PoPo cruising by, just open the sunroof slider and bam, you have 35% tint.
If I was a policeman and I could not see the driver because of dark tint it would make me nervous approaching the vehicle..And I do not want a nervous cop approaching me.It seems that in my state there aren't enough police on the roads to enforce traffic laws (speeding, careless driving, etc.) so even though I'm not tinting my windows, I wouldn't worry about it. I see cars with front windows tinted so dark you can't see into the vehicle.
Drove at night the other day, really was no issue. We'll see when we get a really dark wet night...I would have loved to have gone with the 20%. Am a bit jeolous.
But I really worried about seeing out at night or having a "cave-like" interior as I also have black leather etc... How is your view out the windows at night like when backing up? (Yes, before everyone says... I know it has a camera, but I'm old-school coming from an era when you actually had to look out and turn your head)
I might go back an have the back tailgate window tinted over the factory. Driving at night with the electro-chromatic mirror, the mirror doesn't darken enough and the headlights shining in back bother me.
