Yes, it's a good idea! haha Tinted windows looks the best on white cars in my opinion. I would get something pretty dark like 20%.

my $0.02 :)

I'm getting tints because of UV rays. In New Zealand sun is so strong that if you have dark dash or even dark coloured car you will suffer from clear coat peeling off and dash eventually cracking. :ben:

I know in NZ we have legal requirements for how dark tints can be.
eg. this is from our land transport agency


I think how far you go depends on the tints themselves. Go and look at samples of different % and tints. Some of them look good at different %. I wouldn't go all the way to 35% simply because I don't want every cop wondering what I'm doing and pulling me over or some idiot smashing my window thinking that I'm carrying thousands $$ worth of equipment. <-- sad but true. :blah:

Good luck, post pics after! :thumbsup:

yes, tinting is a wise investment, not only does it keep your interior cooler ( less damage to plastics, vinyl & leather ) but also will stop side windows imploding should you be unlucky enough to be in an accident. Darker does not equate to cooler Jeff

Why did you make a whole thread to ask a retarded question??? After all, its your choice. If you want pics, do a god damn google search. This is another one of those topics that has been beat to death. Search, or better yet just get it done. You'll be happy with a tint. NEVER make a thread like this again please.

P.S. It's tint or tinted; tints not only makes you sound dim, I believe it is incorrect to say it this way. And for FVCKS sake, its your car. Why do you care at all what people on a website think about getting your windows tinted? Its not like your hooking up a SC or turbo kit where you could learn from other peoples experience before putting brand X on your car. Dont go cheap on a tint and youll be fine.

Sounds like 20% is the best choice! Now let's just hope I don't get tickets every week!

The question was fair territory, he is just asking for peoples opinions and experiences. The forum is made better by constructive dialogue and opinion-sharing rather than bashing eachother. So grow up.

That sentence reads like it was written by a 5 year old. Less bashing/trolling, more constructive advice please.
