The guy said "Limo" I said yes and his reply was "you did not get it done here" I laughed and said "Okay" Its a $10,000 fine for the shop only $10.00 for me. So whatever limo is. F$%!ing Dark, but mostly I went for that because it is 120 plus out here in the summer.

[quote=luk8272;170789]Damn just a $10 fine, thats great. Here in south Louisiana it is somewere near $250 and you have to remove it on the spot. So here's a picture of mine with 5% all the way around.

so, is the law just for vehicles with louisiana plates only, or the same for out of state vehicles

$10 fine that's it? In FL it's much steeper than that (I forget the fine I got on my Supra a few years back) but the Cop was nice enough to help me start removing it by taking a razorblade to all the windows before he left me (notice the sarcasm and my surprise when I found out that yes in fact he was allowed to do that....)

Honestly I am not sure, but more often than not if you aren't doing anything wrong on the road they won't pull you over, its not often that they are stopping just for tint. Atleast not where I live. Every now and again they will be out trying to meet their quota and they'll post in the paper that they'll be stopping for tint. We just leave our vehicles parked for a day or 2.

Limo = 5%

there is also a 2.5 tint available.

I have 25% on my front doors and on the factory tinted windows as well which makes it almost limo.
