We only get 2 years state inspection on a new car in Texas...
5 is pretty cool!

thestepchild power windows roll them down. I know what you mean tho. My truck has 20% on back doors from factory, and I put 5% on top of it. Cant hardly see out the back during the day

Tough choice... If it's illegal anyway go with what looks the best
Do you have a place that will pass the inspection? That would be my concern.

30% is as dark as we can go "Legally" in Texas... Sucks for sure. 20% all the way around would be nice.

Thanks...
Nothing on the windshield, 30% Front Doors, 20% Rear Doors and back window. I had the dealer do this for the lifetime warranty, too...

Thanks! The tint does make the car look a lot better.

I'm enclosing the HK Subs on the rear deck and adding a JBL GTO 10" in a sealed enclosure with a Kenwood KAC-7204 (500x1 4ohms RMS) next. I like the HK system, but lacks a little in the Sub frequencies.

Hopefully the guy I'm talking to at Superchips will get a tune available for Turbos soon. He told me the dyno netted 47 hp on the Auto HHR SS with our same motor. WHY did they De-Tune ours so much???
