I have been trying to get my windows tinted since I bought 2 months ago. My friend that I bought it from said that he could hook me up with the guy at his dealership for cheap. After 2 months of waiting and going back and forth with him trying to get it setup I decided just to use someone else. Thanks to Craigslist I found a mobile tinting company for a great price. $120, Limo all the way around, 3M HP tint. I really like it and it will make my car so much cooler.

Here are some pics:

Nice plate. A friend of mine was in a bad car accident 2 years ago and his skull was fractured, and he had a plate put in, and his plates read "UNBR3KABL".

Yeah, it is but it is very functional. I don't think I have had 1 bug hit my windshield. You see one coming at you, gets close, then all the sudden it catches the air stream and goes right over the car.

Its a charcoal color, hard to tell because its so dark.

I like that one. I thought about getting a new plate when I got this car but decided to stick with this one. Arizona has a "Donate Life" plate, for transplant awareness. I would have got that plate and it would have said "WAITING" or "W8ING", something along those lines. Then after I got the transplant I would change it to "2NWLNGS".

I never noticed how the windshield wipers work on the new Civics. I'm not too thrilled about it either.

Yeah, I wasn't crazy about them either, but they are super quiet and they work great.

I dont like the design of the 07/06 Civics, phugly imo. I liked the 98 Civics design I wish I was driving one. Stupid Sentra...

One of the reasons I'm not too fond of the new Civic line. The Si's are the smoothest shifting cars I've ever seen though...


Around here, thats ileagle. You'd get pulled over and ticketed in an instant. :(

You can only have the rear windows tinted here.

My dad's '98 Caravan has those too... they are distracting. :( I don't like them.

Looks good! Around here the most tint you can go is 70% in the front, 50% on the rear and sides.. But people go 20% all around and no one gives a damn, haha.

Legal here is 30% in the front. Mine is 5%. My friends has had his 5% for over a year now and has never had a problem. If a cop is going to be sitting next to him, he just rolls his windows down.

Haha, that works out pretty well then, huh, haha. I was thinking, if I tinted my E150 to 5% behind the front row, I don't think a cop could really give me a ticket, because my Van has factory pull down shades anyways, so it really wouldn't make that big of a difference. Besides, I could just not have windows like the E350 Cargovans.

Most restrictions only prohibit windshield, rear, and forward side windows, back side can be 0% in any state as far as I know.
