MD window tinting

i called this place to get a quote for tinting my front two windows...

http://www.reflectionstint.com/services.html

seems like a pretty nice place and comes with a lifetime warranty which is nice




anyway... they said that a 15% tint would match the factory tint in my rear and back two windows best... can anyone post pics of a 15% tint?

that just seems really dark to me

plus i think the legal limit in MD is 50%... am i probably going to get pulled over every otherday?

Window tinting in MD is a bitch... if you ever need an MD safety inspection, the only place that will "measure" your tint is the DMV -- and an inspection station won't sign off on your vehicle...

My local DMV only checks window tint on Wednesdays between 9-12, weather depending of course.

sucks.

I've been told that the 35% tint is what matches the factory tinted glass......

There's a few shops around Westminster that will do the work, even if you go darker than what the State will allow. The only warranty you will get is for workmanship. If you get an inspection citation and go back to the same shop, they will charge you to take it off.

look at the pics in my gallery- my windshield has 50%... i can't even tell it's on there, not even at night. since it's lighter i paid extra for crystalline tint that has a heat blocker in it. i got a hands on demo with a light box at the tint shop and with the crazy sun here in AZ i was sold!

i'd say 50% isn't worth it, i'd do 35% if you're worried, but i wouldn't do it at all if you have to get inspected before/if you get a citation.

FYI - my truck actually has 20% on the front windows and 35% on the rear windows (that were already 35% so they are about the same/slightly darker that the front windows now) plus the 50% on the windshield (which is illegal in AZ but i don't care )

My windows are 5% all the way around. I can hardly see out at night though so i'm extra careful when reversing. Good thing for that camera on the tailgate handle. Other than that I love it.
Pretty much completely illegal. But out here in Nevada no one has said anything. And its my second vehicle with 5%. Never one fix it ticket or citation.
