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?

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
