Now about NJ tinting restrictions, if I am correct we can tint the rear door windows and the back window but any tint on front door windows is not allowed correct?

I still want to tint the front door windows as it will look odd with no tint when compared by the rear windows, so I am debating on the % for the front. Maybe I go with Wincos 60% on front and 30% on rear..... not sure how that would look.

Wish anyone can post pics of something close to what I am looking for.
Sam F-10,

If you're worry about too dark, then try the Wincos 45%. The tint is right between mine and hufington. Yes, I agreed with the odd look with no tint in the front door windows. I saw a couple of nice Acura TL & 3 Series with no tint in the front windows and that become the focal point instead of the entire car.

Back in the old day (1990), when I moved from NYC to NJ. I had 35% tint on my candy apple red Volvo 740 Turbo. I passed NJ inspection the first year at a gas station (a newbie was inspecting my car - he had no clue about tinting restriction). But the following year, I failed. So I had to take the tint off the front windows and looked very odd.

Thanks, you are probably right.

I really dislike the split look. It kills the lines of the car and makes it look like a minivan or SUV.

I met with Lee today. A well rounded, well-tarveled individual.
I watched him work. He is meticulous and runs a great business. His shop is clean and you get individual time with him.

Also, he tints to the edge of the windows! So many out there don't and will blame the window frame for doing so.

I will put together a group buy (5 cars) and combine it with coding (which I will do).

Get your car tinted and coded on the same trip!
Raise your hand if interested.

Just a quick for Lee, did my tints over the past weekend, great job very professional. Clean shop also, total time just under 3hrs. It was worth my 2 hrs drive fr Queens, NY(traffic included).

Lee uses Madico or Wincos tint. Wincos is better but cost alittle more. My F10 was around $320 with the wincos tint by Lee.
