Tint Questions?

Do you prefer legal limit in the front then dark as possible in the back or same shade all the way around?? Also how much did you pay for your tint?

I went 5% all the way around (i think 20% is legal here), and I think I paid about 220 with lifetime waranty.

THIS. This completely depends on where you live. I live in MN and my tint law is 50%, which is nothing. Sooo... On my last car, I had 20% All the way around (Monte Carlo Coupe). I was pulled over 4-5 times with a ticket each time. After that I immediately pulled off the front and was COMPLETELY fine.

So, with my G6 I put 20% in the back and 50% in the front, and no trouble since. I do wish I had 5% all the way around.

Edit: You might want to find a forum specifically for your State/Area. That way you can ask people locally about how the police treat tinted windows.

I got 5 on the back and 35 on the sides. In PA the legal amount for the sides is 30 so I went the safe route just be sure. I paid $200

i paid 175 for 50% front and 20% rear. and 50% strip across the windshield. like getonerd said... 50% is legal limit for front in ohio.. keep your numbers somewhat close or it could look real tacky if you went limo tint in the rear and 50 up front

In Illinois, you can have 35% all the way around or if you have darker in back, you can only have 50% on the front two windows. With that said, I went 20% in the rear 3 and 35% in the front two (illegally) and I regret it. I wish I would have gone 20% all the around.

I did it the way I did hoping that the light front two would make it appear as the rear ones only "look" dark because it's a coupe, and it does, but I don't like the two tone look. You can see right through the 35% and it just looks a bit odd. But it's your call because if you go illegal, you run the risk of getting stopped for it and possibly even a ticket.

Left a 421RWHP 2004 GTO, but honestly loving the G6 GT coupe!

My g6 is legal at 35% all the way around, and only got pulled over once and that was last year after having the tint for 5 years than lol. When he used a light meter it showed 30% so just beware that the g6 does come with light tinting I think like 75% or something like that. My mercedes is 35% front and 20% rear with a 35% tint band on windshield. Almost forgot to add that they both cost$ 200

This is soooo key. I live in Maple Grove, MN and the most exciting thing cops see around here is kids with flashy cars smoking weed, so they LOVE tint tickets because they can see if there is any mischief going on. (<Run on)
