I'm pretty sure the Jersey law is no tint on the drivers and passengers windows. I went 15% all around which is pretty dark. The lower the % the darker it is. I know in PA %30 is the legal darkest. There are lots of colors but i would stick with black. (black on black looks great!) I paid $200 for my tint and its quality! You can find some cheaper but be sure its good so it doesnt peel, bubble or turn purple.

Not to sure if you will pass inspections as we dont have inspection here. If you get a lighter tint like 35% im sure the cops wont give you that much of a hassle but if you go darker it will be more noticable and you will most likely get pulled over. And $1000?! sheesh that better be tinted with gold and installed by the pope. Most installers will charge you around the $200 range

depends what the shop has and how they lable their tints. Like CT said his went by stages. Most go with % though. If i were you i would get 15% in the rear and a lighter tint such as 35% up front just because NJ laws say no tint up front.

They will tint whatever you want them to lol they dont give a sh!t most the time just ask them what is legal and go from there i know for me you cant tint the windshield and why would you want to but i have 25% all the way around and like it.

lol yeah they would do all the windows you want. I wouldnt tint the windshield tho as that would be too obvious to cops that you have your fronts tinted. But just tell them you want the hatch rear and fronts done and they will do it

no you can't just go in and be like "i want 29%" tint.... usually they have different sheets with different %'s... like 50%, 35%, 15% (or 20%), 5%, etc. You pick one and usually it costs about $200 for a good place with a "lifetime warranty." Whatever the shops chooses to interpret that as. Some angles make it incredibly dark (and at night good luck being seen through the windows). But during the day it isn't too terrible.

15%.... later in the afternoon.

honestly i dont know anybody who paid 200 for their tints.. most i ave honestly heard of from people i know is maybe 150.. i know legit places that will do it for as low as 100 and still do a good job with a warranty.. ask around with people you know who have tints. thats the best way rather than just walkin in some shop and getting it done..
uhhh most people i know have tints in the 15-20 percent range... my bf has 15% and in the year i have known him he hasnt been stopped once for it.
as long as youre not driving around like a jerk off you wont get ticketed for it prolly.


and duh sugardaddy... blue lights any where on a moving car is illegal.. 10k are retarded imho
