Tint

Who did your tint and how much did they charge and what kind of guarantee did you get.

The car was bought in Illinois (Schaumburg) but I live in NC temporarily so I had my tint job done over here by a local business. So I can't help you out bro. But it only cost me $180 with a lifetime warranty. My advice is to shop around because some people were offering to do my car for $300 and up. Keep in mind that 30% is the minimum legal tint in Illinois for the front windows.

Anyone got a picture of oem dark glass (no film)? Why nobody seems to take that option, I thought it would always be better than aftermarket film? Or is it, if you think about heat reflecting?

Sorry no tints are allowed on any front windows in Illinois....you can have anything on the back windows.

IMO, as black as it is; I don't think you should get blacklines.

I like the look of the stock lights on the rear.

I didn't think I would.

I like the brightness.

I wouldn't do anything else to the outside, but that's just me.

Thanks for the nudge Jay. My car happens to be at the dealer waiting for a tire. Got a nail in one of the RFTs yesterday.

I gave them the box and told them to go ahead and install them.

So the next time you see her she'll have the blacklines on :rocks:

Yeah, after you posted this I went and double checked the law on internet just to be sure and you're right. The guy that tinted my car had a handbook on every state law regarding window tint and told me it was 30% on the front. Thanx for the info. I guess I'll be riding we my windows down everytime I go to Chicago.

Thanx for the compliment. To be honest I feel the same way but I'm still debating on blackline tail lights. Since those pics were taken, I had installed H&R springs so it actually looks a little better now that it's lowered. Here is a link with H&Rs:

20% in the back and 50% on the front, minus the windshield.


I paid 210 Euro and it was done in like 3 hours as I watched him do it. I even got to help on the back windshield. More pics can be found at my website JeffersonKim.com --> Multimedia --> Photos --> The Car I Drive
