just some advice, you might want to get the dealer to install the window tinting because some people have had troubles w/the trim inside the door panel scratching the tinting up, if you get the dealer to install tint then its more likely that they'll guarantee the job if it does scratch. Good luck

I went 5% limo tint in the rear windows and 35% smoke tint on the front two windows.I dont have any pics up right now cause I dont have a digital camera at the moment. You cant see into the back at all from the outside, but you can see through the fronts pretty good. At night I can still see just fine. The only thing is that I dont have to flip my rear view mirror at night.

Has anybody ever notice the The blue tint on the side mirros on the Audi's? I like that look and Im sure it would probably help with the glare at night

Tint shops will know what is the darkest you can go legally.

I went the darkest that Texas law would allow on the sides which is 30% and on the rear I went with 15%.

I wanted limo tint but didn't feel like being hassled by cops and state inspection stations. The car still looks good and the tint is sufficiently dark.

Yeah they told me the back you could legally put what ever you wanted but that legally you could only have your front windows tinted 4 inches from the top. I went for 35% on the whole window in the front. The reciept says that the tint on the front windows may be illegal. Which it is. I dont get many looks from cops.
