Default 370Z tint?

Does anyone have a pic of their 370Z with only the 3 rear windows tinted or can comment on how that would look? Its illegal to tint the side driver and passenger windows where i live. I have tinted my other cars with tint all around but I got pulled over too much by the cops.

U should be ok with 30% tint on the front!! I used to tint for 7 years.. I've only seen maybe one or two customers got a ticket for 30% .. even 20% ain't that dark..

Where I live the cops are notorious with illegal tint in the front regardless of the %. I got pulled over 4 times in 2 years and the tickets are $55 each so I am leaning toward just tinting the back 3 windows.

That's ridulous! Legal limit here is 27% in South Carolina. That's currently what I have bc the previous owner of the car was old. I've had 5% on past cars and 15%. No problems with the cops. Sucks to live where you do I guess because of that lol. But I wouldn't just do those 3 windows personally.

Yeah man I probably wouldn't tint if I couldn't tint the whole car. I'm picky and like things to be the same lol. But it's your car man do what makes you happy

Yeah I tinted my windows on both sides here in NJ the ticket is $50. IMO only the small town cops care about it, I've had tinted windows for 7 years and only once did I get pulled over for it. Now I have gotten tickets for it before but that was in place of speeding tickets.

You will have to remove them if you go for that state inspection stations.

Where in NJ are you? Yeah I got pulled over in my other cars by town cops and mostly at night as tint is always darker at night. I dont think I can handle the hassle anymore and being that my new Z is Red, but I love tint!

North Jersey by NYC, yes tints are the most noticeable in the early evening or when its over cast. My tints have always been on the lighter side, I don't like it when people get the super dark tints anyways, its not like I'm driving a limo.

Funny thing is I had less trouble with my red Camaro '97 then I did with my little blue Tiburon.
