LA Tint did my last car (and they came recommended to me). They did a great job and I in turn will now recommend them. (This is, of course, for those people who are in the Northern Virginia area. Sorry, Matt.) But it at least gives good information on there about tinting and why you should. (I went with the ceramic tint (which they call Ultimate), but only as legal as I could in Virginia... which isn't much as far as darkness.)

I would definately say do it, though. (In case THAT wasn't clear!)
cool thanks for the info

Re: tinted windows?

When I bought my car, it already had tint on it. Then I went to get it inspected and failed. New Jersey doesn't let you have any tint at all. I could barely even tell the difference when I took the tint off too. It was total bull.

J/k, I don't think tinted windows look bad at all.
Ahhh... that totally takes me back... to 1989.

Matty, just makes sure you've got the woofers kickin out Slick Rick and Sir Mix a Lot while you're cruisin around and you'll be golden.

Re: tinted windows?

One more vote for tinting the windows.

You only look like a douchebag if the tint is Blue( or any other color other than black) and is bubbling.

I had a light tint added to mine the day after it bought it. I went for the 30% tint. Lets in light but keeps things dark enough so that I can still bang a few hookers without getting caught. Also, In california you cannot tint the driver or passenger windows. If you go to dark here, You will get a fix it ticket and have to have it removed.

Add some spinners and a huge subwoof and you'll be the biggest cop magnet in upstate NY.

It probably wouldn't be a bad idea to check your local laws and see what % visibility is legal in your state. In Oklahoma tint laws are practically non existent and I've only seen a few cases of people getting tickets when they've tinted their front windshield which is obviously a big no no. I've driven around for about 2 years with 5% tint and haven't even been looked at twice by a cop. Anyways, as far as whether or not to do it I think you should. It makes it much nicer in the summer (especially if you have leather), added privacy is sweet if your a nose picker, and visually they make a car look much better in my opinion. I bet if you look on www.cardomain.com you can probably find someone who has a Fusion with tinted windows to give you an idea what it will look like. I have a black galant with tint I could post a pic of if you want. Good luck with it man.

Re: tinted windows?

I have Black on Black and it looks good IMO. It sucks though because I got pulled over in DC because it was too dark. Cannot drive that particular vehicle in DC again (without huge fine). I refuse to remove it.

Here is a little something to help you stay legal New York Window Tint Law - TintCenter.com

Re: tinted windows?

NY laws state that tint must allow more than 70% of light to pass through (front and rear). This is very strict. Here in VA, the laws are (50%/35%). I run 35% on my vehicles and have had no problems with the cops here.

You should check with other people in your area that have tint to see if the cops generally leave them alone. It's a risk getting "illegal" tint, but a lot of the time the cops really don't care as long as the windows are not completely black.

I just bought a black on black vehicle, too, Matty. I plan to put 35% front and rear to keep it cool in the summer. There is actually a point where tint darkness absorbs more heat than it blocks, and actually makes your car hotter, so don't go too dark.

Not only that, if you don't have a high profile (like my brother who drives a dropped WRX with rims) and in general are a good driver, they have better things to do than hassle you.

Yeah, they'll leave you alone as long as you don't have limo tint and 22's.

Re: tinted windows?

It will look great.

You'll also be a lot cooler in the summer, temp-wise.
