    Yes, with the exception of Hawaii, North Dakota, and Ohio. According to http://tintlaws.com/, they requires at least 70% light through windshield tint. All other states allow a band across the top with varying height limits.

    I ended up putting the band across the top. Took a bit to get used to, but do like it now.

    I dont know, now that I posted this I'm probably going to get pulled over for it now. Lol. But really, Ive been pulled over for other things and they never mentioned it. I think they realize the heat here is too much. I had a loaner in the summer with no tint and I felt I was dying. The tint is actually not as dark as it looks in the picture. It was overcloud and some condensation on the car which makes it look darker

    I want to revive this thread. I am thinking about getting tint. Right now I'm torn between 35% and 50%. Would love to see more pics, especially on a white A6 like this.

    I would say don't even bother with 50%. I went with 35% because it's the lowest legally allowed in my state but I wish it would be darker.

    20% all around on mine and ceramic clear windshield tint, all was done by the PO. I had no idea clear ceramic tint existed until I got this car and I thought I was pretty well versed in tint.

    If it didn't have tint, it would have gotten 5% all around with 50% on windshield within a day or 2 of having it home. Lots of people think it's crazy to do the front windshield, but I HIGHLY recommend it. It makes it a million times nicer driving during the day OR night! No need for sunglasses during the day and no more glare from all lifted trucks that don't realign their headlights

    Looks good. Having had multiple cars at 20 and 35%

    I think 25 might be a nice compromise all around. Always felt 35 was tooooooo light in the daytime but 20 toooo dark at night.

    I would t mind doing the front windshield even really light but any problems with inspection etc with that done????

    I am digging 20%, it is nice at night compared to the 5% that I typically run for past 20yrs.

    Inspection is hit or miss, knowing someone helps in my state. If you pull the inspection sticker off before you go get it inspected, I kind of doubt they would noticed it was tinted. I'd be more worried about failing due to side windows. That being said, I have yet to get mine inspected at all since purchase. I lost my inspection connect and honestly, just forgot about it. I think I'm less likely to get pulled over for no inspection than having an expired one. Plus it's nice not having the big square in the lower corner of drivers side of windshield.

    frankwizzle, keep this piece in mind that if you have the shades, you can do a lighter tint, but blackout the back with the shades makes it all appear a few le else darker. I normally have the back window shade up, which naturally darkens the inside of the car for a darken tinted appearance. with those shades up, it's a way darken tint that what's legal, but easily solved by simply dropping the back shade if the police are trying to catch me.
