tinted windows?
 
I'm getting a new Ford Fusion in the next few days and I'm thinking of getting the windows tinted. Do you guys think it's a douchebag look or is it cool? The car is black, so I'm thinking the black on black might look sweet.

Absolutely it will look great.
Granted this is coming from a guy that lives in an erea where tinted windows is NEEDED, but we made sure my wife's new Camry had them, and it looks great with the metallic charcoal paint job.
It's worth it.

There's nothing douchebaggy about tinted windows. It's not just the look, it seriously just makes you feel super confident in your car. I have mine illegally tinted for here in VA, I don't know the laws up there, so if they have them, just check your local laws and go about 7-10% darker.

Are you also going to get a huge exhaust pipe, some chrome rims, and a 4' high spoiler?

J/k, I don't think tinted windows look bad at all.

I liked tinted windows. Unfortunately my car was bought for me so I didn't get a choice of what I wanted, it was just a take it or leave it kinda thing.

If I had my way though, I'd def get tinted windows. Go for it!

The interior is also black so I'm thinking that tinting the windows would help keep it alot cooler in the summer.

Tinted windows are great, and I don't think it makes you look like an ass. Like Js said it can be a privacy benefit as well. Are you getting tints from the dealer or aftermarket? I suggest aftermarket tints, because they can be cheaper and better looking.

Obviously it is possible to tint over the legal limit, and it would be wise to find what that is. In VA, the legal limits are too strict, but most police don't pull you over just for the tints, it would be a secondary offense.

And, yeah tinting is great for sunlight, it will be an easier commute.

Aftermarket. I have a friend who got them done recently and they did a nice job so I'm gonna go to the same place to get them done.

Hey, at least it isn't a Jetta.

I will never buy a car again and NOT tint the windows. You can even get clear tint that will still reduce the heat in the car on a sunny day and reduce the UV light that gets into the car by over 99%. It protects the leather and you from those rays.

[URL="http://www.latint.com/"]LA Tint[/URL] 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!)
