Anyone telling you you're not going to get a ticket because they didn't is giving you horrible advice. Tint on the front of the windshield is illegal. Period. If you don't get cited for it, it's because the officer is choosing not to break your chops. What kills me is when people do something they know is illegal and then complain when they get ticketed. IMHO, if you know it's illegal to get tinting on your front windshield, you pay to play...it's a crapshoot and you may or may not get caught.
That being said, I'm getting my windows tinted to whatever my state laws allow. I'd go darker, buy my own personal choice is to not get hassled. If you don't mind the possibility that you could get ticketed for tinting, go for it.
