NICE!! See, that big ass rear window needs some tint to look good!! Makes the rear end view at least 200% better.

Did you tint the front sides at all? They still look stock. I went with one step darker than CT legal (whoops) all the way around. Makes the silver body color of my ES look real good.

First off, the reflection of the grass makes my car look green in those pictures

Second, the back 3 windows are 5% (limo).

last, the front 2 windows are not tinted at all (still stock)...the reason being that on my 98, I tinted them the lightest I could find (51%) and still got a freaking ticket!!!! It's illegal in IL to tint those windows at all....

If I could get away with it, I would do it...but since i got a ticket for 51%, it's not worth it, yet.

No legal side tints in illinois??? That sucks, and here I was thinking CT police were hard-asses. The good news in CT is that they won't pull you over just for tint. Unless you give them a good reason they will generally leave you alone. Another plus is that the tint shop I use will retint both side windows for around $25 if you do get pulled over.

Most police won't pull you over just for tints around here, except in a city named Elmhurst!! That's where I got my ticket (and a lot of my friends got theirs)....and guess what? That's where my girlfriend lives, so I drive thru Elmhurst almost everyday....

Randy, the tint looks pretty sweet. I have 5% on my back windows and 70% on the two fronts. Also, I love the spoiler, where did you get it and for how much?
