ok heres the deal....

this is whats gonna happen before the end of next summer:
-im gonna get my lowers painted
-new exhaust...borla or miltek?? still tryen to decide
-window tints....
i live in illinois and u can only tint the back windows legally...but i know there is a medical condition where u can be able to tint the front windows as well..anyone know what it is...its got somethin to do with your eye sight or somethin?? that is the only way i would tint my windows...dont need another reason to get pulled over...

by the way...is there any sport exhaust that audi makes (i know u can order one on their website for a b6, but not for a b5...im goin for a better sounding exhaust)

no idea man....

funny story though... one time i got pulled over and he tried getting me for my tint even though i'm out of state..... i talked my way out of it but he told me that some some guy ripped his tint off right in front of him when he pulled some other guy over....:P

Tint them all!!! All my windows are done with 35% I believe, and next week I'll be getting the windshield done also... IMO looks badass on a silver car!!

20% ftw, actually I've been pulled over 3 times and got a ticket for only one of them. $295 ticket is not fun, judge wouldn't reduce it so I said f it I'm gonna leave it on [:D]

15% all the way around with a 5% brow across the front. i had the same thing on an acura 2.5TL but i had 5% on the back window. that was just stupid...

yea illinois sucks...no tint on front two windows and i would definitly just not tint if i cant tint them all but we will see....

as for this..http://collection.audiusa.com/store/accessory.asp?parent%5Fcategory%5Fid=11&category%5FID=48&subcategory%5FID=194&product%5Fid=776

-would u guys consider this amongst borla and miltek?? im just looken for an s4 sounding exhaust...not to worried about the power increase as there would be little with any exhaust i would get..

and im liken the $360 price tag...

thanks in advance

if your not looking for performance, and want better sound and looks im sure you could get a magnaflow muffler for less money.

^magna flow muffler wont give u much of a difference speaking from experience i put one on and the car sounded almost exactly the same as stock if your gonna do exhaust get a full one... unless ur willing to get a intake itll change the tone by ALOOOTT...... even now i still think its alittle to quiet but i dont really have much of a choice since my dad doenst want me waking everyone up at night when i drive in.....

you could get a letter from a dermatologist stating that you need to be protected from UV rays

"Officer, I agree. I'm trying to do the best I can while being as safe as possible at the same time. I don't think it would be safe to tint the front window, especially at night, wouldn't you agree?"

anyone have this, or a sound clip of it? i'd be interested in this over a borla since it is almost 1/2 the price.

Cheers.

i have 15% in front and 5% in back. havent had any tickets or second looks at my car either. ive been pulled over at night and the cop didnt say anything.
thinking about 35% on my windshield, cops dont notice if your windshield is tinted

I'm in Illinois too.
I've had my tints on for like 4 months...only been pulled over once in Elmhurst.
I told the officer the car came like that when I bought it in Michigan. He let me go with a warning. :)

I got 20% all around. Looks Sharp!! Got it done by Nino @ Renn-Art from the GB they had. Only $150 with lifetime warranty!!

I bought this one (http://performance-curve.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=663) about a year and a half ago, along w/ tips, but that part is personal preference. I made a mistake of getting one that is center in, center out. The stock piping as an offset in, so make sure you get that type of muffler.

I also replaced the center resonator w/ a 16" glasspack...if you have a 2.8 (dont know if you said which you drive) you'll want to get atleast a 20" glasspack or you'll get droning at cruising speeds.

Total, I paid about 300 bucks for this setup, its stock piping but the car lost about 40-50 lbs of unneeded weight, and it deffinitely sounds a lot better IMO.

I have 25% on mine, haven't gotten a ticket yet, *knock on wood*. It doest look that dark during the day, but at night you cannot see anything into my car, love it especially for parking (need to park mine on the street =/)

i can't be havin ppl looking in through my windows while i'm driving. too much steez being abused ;) 15% all the way around and have been pulled over... 3 or 4 times since and they never said anything about the tint.

they're just too blinded by the rest of the car and how beautiful it is.
