How picky are cops about tint?
 
Hey again. i scheduled an appointment for a tint job on the 16th. 35% is the legal limit here in WA, OR, and ID. those would be the only places i would go...so, people who live in the northwest and have tint, what % do you have, and have cops ever been dicks about it? for example, pulling you over for the hell of it or even giving you a ticket. let me know, and if you have any pics of 35% that would be sweet. I was looking at roozs thread, and he has 20%and thats pretty dark. later :redspotda

usually wat they will do is, they wont pull you over for your tint, however if you are speeding and they happen to pull you over, they will give u a speeding ticket and trouble about ur tint(i dunno watst hat called, fix-it ticket?)

As far as I know tint is a secondary offence, they can't pull you over for it, unless if they are AMAZINGLY anal. And I know you said my 20 seems a tad bit dark, and 35 on your car will look just as dark (being that it's a coupe and has dark interior). And I HAD 35 before it's just after a while the sun started bugging me on the inside.

And lastly, keep in mind that no matter how good of a tint you get done it will still fade a slight bit. My 35% was perfect at first, but after it faded slightly, I wanted darker, hence my move to 20%

AS of a couple months afo its a primary offense in the state of georgia.

I bought my car with 5% tint all around--i havent had a chance to get it changed yet, and havent had a problem with the cops yet. It's only because I've been kind of lucky lately.:redspotda

Turbodefrost 08-13-2006 12:23 PM

damn! 5% all around?! that's DARK. Where did you hear the legal limit was 35%? Cause I got mine done at a shop around january and as of then the shop said the legal limit was 20% on the back and rear sides, and 30% on the front sides... Cause I wanted to go darker than that but they said they wouldn't go more than what is legal... maybe i just got lucky

BaLAnCe17 08-16-2006 12:12 PM

so heres the deal. i dropped off the car before work. im getting 30% on front and rear sides and 20% in the back. It will look good no matter what :P i am also installing my alarm tonight w/ a tech at 5pm. And to top it all of, on of my friends brothers, who started www.6gc.net which is a celica forum; we are doing a photoshoot on thursday during sunset so it should be siiiiiiiiiiiiick!!! count on another car showroom thread, and e36 PWR i hope your ready to make a sweet sig. cya guys

Turbodefrost 08-22-2006 02:57 PM

i have 15% all around and have never been pulled over for it, or questioned about it once pulled over..

I think ive been pulled 5 or 6 times in the rex now..

I run with 20% on most of my cars and NEVER have any problems. If you drove a honda, it would be a problem.

dude do you just drive reclessly all the time or do you have really bad luck with cops? cause i remember you saying you'd been pulled over a ridiculous amount of times in your alpine e36 too

Bimmer_5er 09-13-2006 02:28 PM
