Tinted my xse

I’ve had it for about a week now and always tint, hoping to get black overlay emblems at some point too. Before and after attached

the emblems can be easily removed, spray painted or plastic dipped. with plasti-dip, you dont even have to remove, just prep tape.

Too dark for my taste, but I like how it looks on your vehicle. I've got the same color LE and was thinking of tinting soon.

15% in the front 25% in the rear, they were attempting to have them match considering the privacy glass in the rear, it came out pretty close

Looks good! Do you have any other angles? Would love to see the difference from face on.

Can certainly tell you don't live here in Virginia. Our @#^*+^ Law Makers have a "law" against window tinting above a certain "level". Not always enforced, but then you never know, if they STOP you for anything ....... then they'll zap you for tint being too dark. Oh, you can get a "medical" exemption!!

It’s the same % in Wisconsin too (moved from Falls Church). I see a number of cars with the windows much darker than what is allowed by law. But I am not taking a chance. I might stop by a shop and see if a bit more can be applied to the front windows.
