I've gotten pulled over just for tints on my side windows. I am at 25% maybe a little darker because of factory tints. The on ramp to the Belt exit 4 and 5 is where they nabbed me.

The tickets themselves aren't horrible but keep in mind if you get pulled over for anything else that is an auto extra ticket for each window.

In Brooklyn South TVB i think each ticket was 15-50 (i forget, just giving a range) but that is after I went in and pleaded guilty to them and got a reduction. If you do get a ticket make sure not to plead innocent and then change to guilty later on because the surcharge on that is even more than the ticket!!!

I've had tints on E36 M3, MB C240 and despite being pulled over 3 times for them I'll probably get them when I get my E92 M3 (sometime in the future).

The city is hurting for money bad.


I honestly wouldn't do the 20% windshield though just because of visibility issues. If you need to tint the front maybe go a bit lighter.

Thanks man, I do think 20% on the windshield would be crazy dark and hard to see. I am going with 75% and hopefuly not get pulled over .
