I got one once, but it was dismissed because I told the judge that the tint installer led me to believe that it was legal. It was actually a fix it ticket, but he completely dismissed it. I didn't have to pay anything and I was able to leave the tint on.

Re: How many people gettin Tint Tickets?

OMG that would suck to not be able to tint the front side windows!! I got a fix it ticket in TN about 15 years ago. I've always went darker with each car and haven't had a mention since. Sometimes I feel mine are too dark. It can be rough looking for pedestrians when turning left in the dark when it's raining....which is all the time in Seattle!

Re: How many people gettin Tint Tickets?

It is definitely a hit/miss type of issue. It all depends on the mood of the police officer when they come across your vehicle.

For me, having a few mods - I tend to be a more cautious driver and do not speed much. I do not want to get pulled over for speeding and worry about tint, exhaust, lighting and so forth...

My tint is 'tech' legal at 35% all around, but that does not include the minimal factory tint. So, my tint is more like 38%. Tech, I could get a ticket.

Re: How many people gettin Tint Tickets?

I had 5% for 4 years on the old 3, and the car before it, no one ever said anything, legal limit here is 35%. Then the last week I had the 3 sedan, I got 2 tickets in a week!!! Now I'm rocking 20% on the speed.

shouldnt that be lower? the lower the % the darker the tint, since our windows have a little tinit on them, if you get them 35% they will come out to be lower than that.


i got a tint ticket, i was suppose to stop by a police department without the tint with in 24 but i didnt... oh well...

i have 35% all around including windshield.

For sure! Once I installed rims, dropped and exterior lighting I drive slower and more cautious cause I know I stand out.
