View Full Version : are you guys tinting your windows?

07-28-2002, 02:16 PM
I just want to know if you guys are tinting your windows. I can't decide if I want to or not. I'm not worried about legality, I just don't know if it will look better.

I'm having the same trouble deciding. My car's white, and usually white cars look clean without tint. But then again, some white cars look awsome tinted. (i.e. the new Rav 4)

Laws where I live are not that strict about tinting. Since my car is Silver I felt tint was needed and looks great.

mine is already tinted

20% on my ride its kinda hard to see at night tho but it looks pimp

07-28-2002, 03:09 PM
i think im going to do a very very very very light red tint all around whare you will only notice it in some light. I have not decieded for sure though.

Red? Yuck. Don't do it man. Colored tint is just a fad, similar to Altezza's, Nozzles that light up.....yadi yadi yada. They are just fads and usually fade away pretty fast.

Stick to a black tint, no matter what, it will always be in style.

I'm gettin tint on Wednesday. It is black, but slightly reflective for heat rejection. I had the same stuff on my last car and loved it.

It's Formula One (http://www.formulaone.com/) tint. Anybody else ever had it?

07-28-2002, 06:09 PM
my friend has it on his bmw it looks sweet
if i go black i will get formula 1 tint for sure

I got 35% on my EP. Looks a little darker than it should. I think its cuz the glass is a smidgin tinted from the factory


07-28-2002, 06:21 PM
did you do front and back? it looks like you did. Think that would look good on a white car

07-28-2002, 06:51 PM
yeah I was thinking 20%, but that 35% sure looks good.

07-28-2002, 06:54 PM
me? No front tint.I want to, but i dont wanna get tickets....again.

Police over here are really strict on Tints...not sure what percentage was done on mine as the delaership organised it but they cost about

at a guess about $450-500

07-29-2002, 05:39 AM
Wow pricey to tint windows over there. Also are car thefts high in England and if so, why is that?

07-29-2002, 05:42 AM
Car theft isnt too bad where i am but ive had a motorbike stolen before. However carjacking is on a steady increase over here

Guess I did get off the topic though, so to get back on the topic. My tint is 21% for the 2 front windows, then 8% for the 3 back windows.

I got 35% on the back and 30% on my sides. I had it done by Formula-One with their highest quality tint. 200 bux cash.

what does everyone think about mirrored tints? i saw a mirrored tint on a white civic at my honda dealer it looked real nice but im not sure how it would look on white 02 si.

I saw a black EP with black to red mirrored gradient tint. It looked AWSOME (and I hate mirror tint). It did however have sweet 5 point rims with red inserts and red calipers.

It was well accessorized.

I have 15% black tint all-round (except front) on my black EP. The stuff they used is cool, I have almost no loss of view from inside out, but you can't see shit from outside in! Looks like flat black, not metallic based. Looked like gunmetal grey metallic before they applied it tho (I watched).

Guaranteed for life and cost only $160 in Philly, PA

My tint is somewhat mirrored. It has a silver tint to it. Not smoked like most tints. I think it looks really good on my silver EP. I'll post pics soon.

I got 35% tint on my EP, got it done last week. I will have new pics of my ride soon with new tint, new wheels, new springs (lowered), new stained black bumper reflectors and new silver ephatch.com decals! :D

Anyone have a strip of vinyl on the top of their windshield ??

08-18-2002, 07:29 AM
I have a www.ClubSi.com eyebrow on mine. :D I just like it because it says Si on it. Don't really go to the website too often. ephatch.com should make an eyebrow.
