OBTW it is illegal to put any tint on any car in Ca., But because the CHP cars are tinted, they don't really inforce it. If your nervous, get a K9 tint.


What is k9 tint? do u think I would run into problems driving around with 15% on all windows except my windsheild?

Cool The same as

Cop cars with K9 in the back. It is no tint in the fronts, and black out in the rears. They don't enforce on this as they would have to take it off the cop cars. They did at first but lost 3 dogs the first month because ford ac's are so bad. But it is kinda ugly.

Like I say, I have had no problem with a limo tint, and with the sun shade in back it really looks good.

That place in the valley is really good.

Note: Fix-it ticket in California for too dark front side windows is $125.

I talked to somebody that got one in November 07. He was at the tint shop and they quoted $25 to remove tint on front 2 windows, and $90 to redo later in a lighter shade. I think he decided to just pay the ticket instead.
