Forum member volvoNB is similar, 20 F/R and 35 sides, if I recall. A picture (older, but with tints) of his car is in the gallery thread.

Re: tint-35 front 20 rear (mullmann)

Excellent memory mr mullman <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">. I also have a 20% 5.5" front tint ( up to 6" is allowed in Texas ). That little strip does make the interior appear a little darker. Some recent pics I posted is in this thread <A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=54866&page=2" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/z...age=2</A>

In Texas the tint on the front windshield (eyebrow) cannot extend past the AS1 line that is etched near the sides of the glass, that may be less than six inches on many cars. FYI

I have a Barents Blue T5 with Louisiana tint, which is 50 front sides, 35 rear sides, and 20 on the back. <p>I actually love it... i got Diamond tint, which is semi reflective and it really looks good. The color looks very even all around, even though it's different shading . If you get 35 on all windows and 20 on the rea, it'll look great

I like even shades all around,but I dont really want to have to deal with cops etc., and I think 35% all around would be too light since I have the light beige interior. volvonb, your car looks great! thanks to everyone else trying to take pics.... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Mercedes doesn't do this to their cars now either.

<TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>hawkeye4211</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">Removing the factory windshield tint is a cost reduction.</TD></TR></TABLE><p>That may be the correct explanation, but I have always thought it was because of the slope of the windshield combined with the relatively low roof where it meets the glass. I'm only 6'0", but when I'm sitting up straight I'm looking out of the windshield where the tint would normally be. I suspect that having the tint in front of the driver, in the line of sight, might be a bad idea.
