Definitely check the laws in your state to avoid getting hassled by the police. That's a lot of money to put out to have to turn around and have to peel it off. You want to go with llumar high performance charcoal atr for sure. They are one of the best films out there. What color is your car? It's hard to tell from the pic.

What's "high performance" tint?

Does it add hp to your engine?

Don't touch the windshield. You need to see what's in front of you clearly

Ah, gotchya! I'd still not touch the windshield.. But that's just me. With 6000k heads, top fogs, and bottom fogs and I still manage to miss few things here and there on the road.. BUT, if you like it, then do it.

Yeah but you're from one of those towel head countries. You have a built in excuse. Hahaha

If you wanna tint your front windshield and can handle the consequences then by all means whatever floats your boat. I know a guy w front tint and 10k...still loves it.

I have Madico Wincos 20% on mine. You'd better check with your local laws. It's easy to sit here now and say you don't care about getting tickets, but when they start piling up, you'll change your mind in a hurry. My buddy got 20% all around on his GTI...Ohio law says 50% on front windows, he got a warning ticket the same week he had the windows tinted, and the policewoman told him she'd be looking for him. Needless to say, he then had to pay to get the film removed and then pay to have it re-tinted at the legal 50%.

That's when you go to the family doctor, complain about headaches in direct sunlight, and, at least in Ohio, they can write you a medical excuse you keep with your reg that allows a darker tint. I've been looking into it, buddy has one for migraines and has had 20% all the way around...has had it for three years... and has yet to even get pulled over for it. Most state laws do have a "medical exemption" clause built in.

I'm not suggesting that you commit fraud, but...sometimes the sun is bright and sometimes one does get a headache.

I would just tint it legal depending on your state and use the rest of the money on other mods. I can live without tint but not my junction produce curtains. If I want privacy them I close them.

He tried that, his doctor refused. He works all the time and didn't want to mess with fishing for a new doctor. It was easier just to comply. It didn't help that the policewoman that stopped him really gave him a hard time. She pulled him over 1 block from his house and specifically told him she was going to be looking for him. His car is a "kermit-the-frog" green GTI...kind of hard to miss.

i had 50% on the windshield on my charger..and the difference was insignificant ..WITH HID's.. halogen its not a good look... also depends on what color your interior is.. the charger had a light grey interior.. so i had 50% on windshield, 35% on all four door windows, 20% on back window.. Click the image to open in full size.
now the max has black interior so i am not tinting the front window.. 35% on the sides, 20% on the rear window..this is usaully the safest option to add privacy and not be harrassed by the cops... I USED to smoke a lot of weed and drive, so i avoided doing things that bought extra attention to me..

If windshield tint is illegal in your state, I wouldn't do it. It isn't worth the trouble. 50% won't be that much of a difference anyway, so why tempt fate?

I have 50% on the windshield of my wife's Tahoe and it is perfect...almost undetectable during the day, but cuts down on the amount of heat that comes thru the windshield...I had 35% on my windshield in my z71 and I HATED it...could still drive at night with stock headlights, but I just hated how it looked while driving...was too dark

also...if you have a chip in your windshield, don't tint it...cause it will heighten the chance of it cracking...ask me how i know

so you think a 50% on the windshield would be good on a smoke colored max? and like 35% on side n like a 20%-5% on back window??

Don't touch the windshield. You need to see what's in front of you clearly

Usually ppl put 50% on the front windsheild... does not affect sight at ALL and it helps a lot while driving at night. I loved having 50% on my widsheild....
