That was the excuse to get the exemption. I have migraine headaches and bright light does irritate me more than others at night though.

Nothing on the front
Good VLT and great TSER

Just spoke with a CHP today, after I let him catch up to me, I asked him about the CA laws. You can have a medical exemption that will allow tint, but if you have it, you cannot drive at night! As stated earlier in this thread, no tint at all on the driver & passenger side....but I am going to do it anyway!

Unfortunately you're misunderstanding it. 30% tint allows 30% of the light in. In CA, because it's a state that just tries the hardest to make life as annoyingly painful as possible with all its laws, you can only have tint of 70% on the front, which is basically nothing. The easiest way that I can prevent myself from getting confused with all the tint numbers it is that I just remember limos are 5% tint, and that's super dark.

20% on the rear and 35% on the front. No issues with visibility at night. You're not allowed to have any tint on the driver and passenger front windows, but I haven't gotten pulled over, yet.

Thats pretty bad ass for the second video. Didnt know that could be done. I had already seen the first video, but the second is definitely what I would prefer.

OPS: Here is mine with 25% all around except windshield.

Mine is 30%. If you want your rear windows to look even darker, turn on the two window shades.
