Here is the particulars for those who may not know the details, or have aftermarket tinted your windows with a new car in the last year. :D

Interesting..... My truck is up in this month and has aftermarket tint. Its old.... so has become very transparent. Lets see what happens.

Bill, you have any issues yet? Anyone else?

My friend does inspection for me he will pass me regardless, It is a $1000 dollar fine for the inspector for the first offense if caught passing a vehicle.. But its on my vw alltrack, and i decided not to tint the front side windows last year because i didnt want to get pulled over. The alltrack is considered a passenger car because of the ground hight, something like a tiny chevy trax is considered an suv because of ground hight and allowed to have rear tint, go figure, stupid rules..

i’ve found a few places that would pass me for the tint on the side windows, it’s the windshield that usually worries them :lol:
