I am a little nervous, but not that bad. I was at a light yesterday in my small town, and a cop pulled up next to me. I made eye contact, and naodded, and he nodded back, so now I feel much better. He easily could have pulled me over. Now granted, it was 11:00 AM, and pretty bright out, so that may have helped, but still, there is always the possibility....

I think PA cops are more lenient when it comes to tints. NJ cops will pull you over for every little infraction. All the cars look great with the tints.

Anyone with Comfort Access have any issues?

Im still trying to understand why CA would be affected by the tint. The only time it comes into play is when you are opening the door or starting the car. Either way you have to unlock it with the remote button and you either get a response or you dont. In that regard, I think I noticed I have to hit the lock button on the remote an extra time or two for it to register.

Truthfully, I never use my remote... I've read that some tints will interfere with the CA - not being able to unlock/lock when touching the door handles.

Yeah, it looks really good. Its just me and my paranoia of never having driven a tinted car before. Ill get over it and start sleeping at night.

Then in that case, I havent experienced any issues. I typically lock it and unlock it from the handle as well.
