    I know cali doesn't allow any tint windshield and front two. Look up the local laws though, it'll tell you.

    Depends on the shop, experience, quality of tint, etc. Some guy advertises here 4 windows for $89.

    I had mine done for free by a friend. 4% front windows, 10% rear windows (including back windows), and left the windshield untouched.

    speaking of the "tint" on the rear windows, that stuff scratches off easily. I was hauling a load to the dump for my brother in law and a peice of wire marred my rear right pane.

    It depends on the quality of tint. Llumar and Formula One are high quality tints. 20% all around looks really good.

    Tint on the back windows can be anything. No level of tint is legal on the front windows. It has to be clear. I've gotten a ticket for very light tint.

    70% in california!?!? why do people live there!!??!!??

    Florida is 30% front, no limit on the back. You can spray paint your back passenger and back windows black if you want. I have 15% all around, and no cop has ever said anything beyond complimenting it. I know people with 2% on all SIX, INCLUDING their ENTIRE WINDSHIELD, and have never gotten a ticket for it! Which is absurd, I know.

    Dark tint is an officer safety issue. Maybe Cali likes their police officers more.

    I've been asking this for years. That state is the most overregulated example of bourgeois Liberalism run awry.

    God I hate California.

    It's not 70%. It's 100%. You can't have any tint on the front windows.
