Question What do you think??

First off.....I drive a pearl white Infiniti G35 (4-door) and I was thinking about getting my windows tinted. But I don't know how much tint to put on there or if my car would even look good tinted. So i was hopeing some people would give me their personal thoughts on if they think it would look good and if so what % do you think would look best??
Thanks for your feedback.

1) Make sure that it is something you want to do. Driving for the first couple of weeks with tinted windows in the dark is kind of a new feeling. Granted that you will get so used to it that you will not even notice anymore eventually, it's still something to think about.

2) Personally, I like tinted windows on lightly colored cars. The tints look darker from the outside than they and it looks good. Considering photoshopping a picture of your car to see if you personally like it. After all, it's YOUR car.

3) I have 15% tint and I really like it. It is not too dark to be uncomfortable or get you pulled over (at least where I live) but still looks dark enough from the outside.

Well 35% is the legal tint where I live...NC... But i dont if im getting it that light or not. Do you think 35% is to light for it to look good. B/c I was truly thinking about 18% but I am still in school and you can get in trouble for havin tint that is to dark(really dont care though b/c i never get in trouble for anything). Anyway what do you think i should do/get???

I would go with 35%, based on how tough the police are in your neighborhood.

As far as I know, no tints are allowed on the front two windows of a passenger car in Philadelphia. Even if I am wrong, it's definetely not darker than 35%. There is a huge difference between 35% and 15% or 18%. The police here do not care. I have driven by, next to, in front of cops with tinted windows for 2 years. I was even pulled over once with them and I have not heard of one complaint. However, if the police DO care in NC, it is better to have it slightly lighter and not get into unnecessary trouble, although 35% is fairly light.

i have 35% on my fornt windows and 20% on the back ones. I believe 35% is too lights. You can see right through it. if i would redo it. I think i would get 20% all around. In my state any on the front windows is illigal but cops dont hassle you if they can see in.

For my mr2 i want to get 15% all around and 50% for windshield.

Nice, can't wait to see it...those g35 coupes are fun to drive, but I never really got to tear it up with them.

i think if your interior is black then go with 35% if its cream then go darker (that is if you're looking to upgrade the look of the car) here is mine with 20%
