Default Monterey Blue 370Z owners with tint - check inside

okay, I have been debating last couple weeks whether I should go with 20% or 30% tint on my monterey blue Z. All my life I went with 20% tint on all my cars. Again, all of my previous cars were silver . I always went for the silver with a deep tint look. Now, with this new color, I really don't know what % tint I should get. I think 20% is a bit too dark for this color. I think 30% would look really nice. Anyone has any pictures of their tinted Monterey Blue Z? It will help me make my decision. thanks.

Coming from a blue S2k light tint will not do the car justice. 30% is too light go for 20% or lower. Just FYI at 30% you can see everything in the car at 10-15 ft away no problem.

20% and lower tint was just a phase for me(HS, undergrad, even graduate school). Now I just think it looks tacky and kinda ghetto. I would go with 30% all around. It will look classy and still give you all the benefits of heat block. If you don't want anyone peeking into your car than it's a different story I guess but I don't see what the big deal is.....unless of course you have stuff you don't want anyone to see

THanks for all the input.

I only have 3 days to decide now! I know 20% tint looks really good on silver cars (my last two cars were silver), black and white cars. But I am not sure if the same can be applied to Red or Blue cars. I am getting done at Shades of Gray in PA. They are really good. I would appreciate any 20% or 30% pictures of Red or Blue Z tint pictures.

Here are some random tint pics from shades of gray:

40% looks so classy... I'm tempted....



GTR with 40%



Z with 40%



30%







20% looks kinda ghetto..



the more I look at 30% and 40%, the more I'm tempted to go lighter. I think I have just grown out of the darker tint Era. I think now I'm debating between 30% and 40%. I drive a Z not civic. I want my car to be classy. I don't think classy look can be achieved with darker tint.

Forty percent is absolutely spot-on!

agreed.it look so classy with 40%. I can't ruin the amazing look of the Z. I must be careful.

Did you put tint on your car?

Getting ready to have it done, and I think 40% is it too. Enough to keep you out of trouble, and also to see better at night.

I like 30, a bit more protection (Texas does get hot), and not the "black out" look. I will definitely be glad to see your car once it is done.

Here's Blue with 30%







Doesn't look bad at all!

Poll options changed . Between 30 vs 40 now.
