New guy here, with my first Honda

Hey guys I've been lurking around a bit, some great info on here. I just thought I'd say hi, my real name is Joe and I bought a '92 Civic a little while ago, and I'm loving it so far, it's a nice change from the domestics, hoping to learn a lot with the new car.

thanks for all the comments! i wanted to ask you guys, i plan on tinting the windows in the near future, and i want to get your opinions on how dark i should go? I'm really torn about this, I've never had a tinted car before

Some ideas i had were:
[1] 35% all around
[2] 20% all around (i think its illegal)
[3] 35% front and 20% rear
[4] 35% front and 5% rear

Welcome to the team Joe!

In regards to the tinting, I suggest doing what I did, 35 in front 20 in the back. Reason being, you won't draw so much attention to yourself. Having a black car like me, you hardly notice the different tint %. If you do 20 all around, you'll eventually get a ***** cop and not worth the headache.

I wouldn't go 35 and 5, it would look weird. Look at our affiliate section, I personally got Krown Lakeshore to do my stuff, they did an awesome job.

+1

Although i would go lower than 20 in the rear. Front 35 or 30 , any less than that you may get pull over

Audioheaven ( i believe) is having a sale on tints. Its like 170 for the car which is pretty good.

Too bad i have to remove my tints to get this deal so for me its like 300 after all
