    I need some advice i had my windows tinted about 3 weeks ago and they look to dark to me , a couple of my buddies(they're pretty dark) commented on it so i wanted to bring it here in hopes i can resolve ( if possible) it with the shop.

    Thank you

    The max is 35% all around, you can get a medical exemptions. 20200912_190428.jpg 20200912_190439.jpg

    Most shops won't do darker than 35% unless you specifically request it (and pay cash). Didn't they tell you transparency % they used?

    The other thing you have to watch out for is factory windows are often very slightly tinted (around 91%) as well...so if a 35% film is put on you may end up somewhere around 26% VLT.

    I pulled over this 21 year old kid from Lawrence and he had a letter from his doctor and exemption RMV for his 10 percent tint. Seemed like BS but all paperwork was legit. I don’t think it’s that hard to get a letter from your doctor.

    I'd swing back over when they are open and ask if they can double check your windows for you with a tint meter so you don't run into problems.

    If you call first it allows them to question why.
