: The closer you get to the legal tint limit (even within), the more trouble/attention you are asking for. Keep Winston's comments in mind. If/when ANYONE gets stopped you should do the cop the courtesy of turning on your interior lights and roll down your window(s). I've done this; they THANKED me AND let me off with a warning.

: I had 20% tint on my last car. It was pretty subdued and still within tasteful limits, I thought. 30-35% is MUCH more obvious. Higher than that is illegal in most (every?) state. The look your describing is 35%+.

: (no tint)

Good Point John,

I live in FL and tint is almost required here if you want to keep your car's interior from self destructing. I have 35%, which is the max legal in FL. NO tint on the windshield except for a 5-6 inch band across the top of the windshield. It's almost invisible, and serves as a sunvisor and a camo for my radar detector.

DEFINITELY roll down the windows and turn on the lights if you get stopped.
