    The factory tint on my stang just started to peel off as of late so i decided to retint the whole thing. Would it look good with 5% all around? And do cops notice this alot? thanks for the input.

    unfortunatley thats true but if they wanted to they could trail you and wait till you slip up and pull you over, and reguardless of if you like it or not, if your windows are up when he approaches he will give you a ticket.

    Yes unfortunately. Whatever cop that will go out of his way and wait for someone to slip because he has illegal tint gets no respect from me, and I know there are an assload out there that will do that.

    Yes they can, if it is illegal in your State then they certainly can pull you over. Every state is different but here we are not alowd to have any on the front so they will pull you over just for that.

    IMO all around 5% is too dark, 15% is the darkest id go all over.

    I like the 5% on the rear and 35% on the fronts so you can still see at night.

    Mine is 35 all around and I think it was a waste of money but too dark around here will get you a ticket for sure.
