Yeah, here in Miami the cops are pretty lax about it. Only person who gives me a hard time is my brother who is a trooper, lol. He patrols the same stretch of highway I take home every day so every once in a while he scares the crap out of me and pulls me over, hahaha.Depends on the cop and the city. I got a warning ticket for 5% on the front doors in '86.
This is 5% on all windows behind the front doors and 35% on the front doors. Technically not legal either, but if the cop can see my face he'll likely not ticket me. It's worked so far.
P.S.: 5% windshield eyebrows are legal here. I highly recommend them.
Note the front plate delete. Not legal here either but as long as I stay away from the airport I should be fine. Lots of people only display a rear plate around here.
What are brothers for?Yeah, here in Miami the cops are pretty lax about it. Only person who gives me a hard time is my brother who is a trooper, lol. He patrols the same stretch of highway I take home every day so every once in a while he scares the crap out of me and pulls me over, hahaha.
Same here. All my cars have 5% and anytime I do get pulled over I have all the windows down. Never seems to have been an issue thus far in my life.I've only been pulled over 2-3 times, but I always remember to roll down all the windows for the policeman to be able to see in. There's just no point in raising the anxiety level...nothing to hide.
True story: My very first tint, 1985 in No. VA, SAME EVENING, cop pulled me over. He kindly asked if he could check my tint, as they had all received new meters and he wanted to check his out. HAHA!!! (tint was legal, so no issues...)
You should. It makes the interior so much more comfortable now during the summer months. Outside temp here in Miami today showed 99 degrees. I honestly couldn't tell inside the Volt. Interior is always cool and the sun doesn't beat me up while driving.Looks nice! Same color as mine so a good reference for me. Think I’ll be getting that done too.
And windshields. Good for folks with rosacea.Could also be used on clear windows if you don't want darkening.
There's better than that out there. See 3M's Crystalline products.I got a lighter tint that allows 40% light transmission. Less extreme, fine at night, legal without question, and still rejects 99+% UV and 48% of heat.
My dealer even offers a clear film that has similar UV and heat rejection (a little less at 43%). I think it is mainly used on factory tinted windows to improve their UV and IR performance without making them darker. Could also be used on clear windows if you don't want darkening.
