Hey everyone,

I am getting my 2012 civic ex sedan on tuesday. It is dyno blue pearl in colour. I live in toronto and I was thinking of going 35% in the fronts and 15% in the back. What do you guys think?

i think 35% is cool....IMO i prefer darker tints especially on cars with light color interior. For example, both of my cars now have black interior so 35% on mine would look darker than 35% on yours. But i also like darker tints....my truck is full limo and my car is currently 35% but im re-doing it to either limo or 1 shade lighter. Also a dark sun visor is a huge plus too

Man. I'm so annoyed with NJ tint laws. None on the front sides or windshield. Come on, no windshield is ok, but no front side windows is so lame. I'm about to go to the eye Dr and ask for an exemption lol

Same here in Cali, ...back in Hawaii it really sucks, although you can put on the front sides, you can't go less than about 35%, ...ALL AROUND!!! Sucks major donkey nutz!

In ontario we can go 35% on the front sides, and only top 4-6 inches i think on the windshield.

haha at least your car would look proper with uniform 35% tint all around, with just the back windows tinted it makes you look like your front windows are always down lol Regardless of that btw, I'm still gonna be getting tinted, probably around 35% or a little lower %, I don't want the difference to be too awkward..

That would be awesome, that's all I need and I'd be happy

yeah the rear defroster shouldnt give you any problems with your tint.....as long as the shop uses a decent tint like lumar or a ceramic tint.
awesome thanks guys

What if its Factory/Dealer installed? I know in MA the tint is 35% but when i had mine done the guy said he does dealer work and installs darker than that for dealerships.

Something at least worth asking about if you want darker without getting busted for it...
