    I just bought a new 2005 pontiac vibe and would like to tint windows- does anyone have recommendations on what % I should get? In MI, anything goes.. I'm thinking about getting it done at Buzz-Off Autos - they use SunGuard tints.

    I'd also like to see pics of your tinted cars with stats.

    I went with 35% in the front two windows and 20% in the rear three. I'm in CA so i didn't want to go too dark in the front because of getting ticketed for it. I end up driving with my from windows down most of the time anyways though.

    heres a few pics

    Michigan? i live in MI...NO tint is allowed on the front windows...anything goes in the back though. actually...you can have a small strip on your front windows and an eyebrow on the windshield lol...but that just looks dumb.

    where are you located exactly in MI? if you are near Keego Harbor, there is an AWESOME tint shop there that is also cheap.

    get whatever % you want...but the darker you go in front, the more of a chance the poh-lice may pull you over. usually 35% goes well with them since you can still see through it. maybe 15 in back, 35 up front, or 5 in back, 15 in front if you feel like going darker

    Ahh- overlooked that part- 4 inch banner's allowed up in front, that's gay!

    I'm quite close to Keego Harbor in West Bloomfield, what's the name of the shop?
