View Full Version : 35% tint on windshield? Good or bad idea?

I got 18% on all my windows I have a prescription saying I can have dark tint but is 35 on the windshield extremely noticeable? Would it prevent me from seeing at night? I am running 6000k headlights so ya that may make it harder l. What do you all think? And would it look good? Does anyone have any pics?

Bad idea. It's a pure show car and hardly ever driven on the street... sure go for dark windshield tint. Everyday driver that you drive in rain, dark, etc... absolutely not. I have 35% on all my windows and I could never imagine having to look through the windshield with that tint on.

BAD idea. Besides getting pulled over...

Do you enjoy being pulled over by police? Most tinters won't even do windshields.

Bad idea, including your 18% tint. I don't know how you can back up or look out the windows to see anything. 35% all around minus the windshield is good enough IMO and still looks good.

i have 20% all around (excluding windshield!) and its not too dark besides at night time.

I have had friends who have done 35% on the windshield and I think it looks great but could never imagine driving around with it. Why risk lowering your visibility and safety for something that looks cool? You may miss that deer about to run out into the street ahead of you or that child running around at night (for whatever reason? lol)..

anyways, i'd pass on it man. if it were a weekend driver during the daytime only, possibly, but not a DD that you drive during the night/bad weather.

My 2cents. I think a visor strip would look okay though. I prefer nothing to be honest.

Don't listen to these guys I have had it on all of my cars and you can barely even notice it. Trust me it still gets the job done while looking good IMO. And every time I have ever been pulled over a cop has never even noticed it

:::facepalm:::

Doing the front is a bad idea, and asking to get pulled over. Doing a top strip looks tacky unless you are rolling an 80's Camaro. You can get a clear UV tint on the front though.

Mine's done very light(35%), barely noticeable but keeps my interior noticeably cooler though, I only drive mine in the summer...but I gotta say, nobody ever notices the windshield is tinted and I can see fine day and night. Don't do a strip, looks tacky imo.

As others have said, seems like a pair of sunglasses could solve this problem more effectively. Plus, there's an off chance someone else might end up driving your vehicle and not be used to the tint. It's a definite danger.

I dont thing its a bad concept, possibly to dark with the front tint. With that said, I have 15% all around and 50% on my front windshield... Dont ever have an issue, but then again I have had lazik thus, I hope my eyes are better than all you blind bastards :laughhard: jk....

With reguards to the police, I have been pulled over twice. Matter of fact 20 minutes apart from one another during a trip to STL. First cop let me go, second cop was a prick. I do have a script making my tint "legal" due to suffering from migranes from excessive sunlight (I also think its due to my lazik :shifty:) long story short, my script was in my other car at the time :facepalm:



...So to sum it up its your car do whatever the hell you want, just be responsible and know your limits when driving at night what is too dark?

my wife has 50% on her front window on a 2008 G35 but her sides and rear are 35% as far as night driving its not bad I would not go any darker than that however at first when we had it done I found myself struggling at night to see so I always have the highbeams on when I can now that im used to it doesnt bother me at all.That being said it makes the look of the car in my opinion

I've driven 2 different e46 m3's with 35% tint on the front windshield and it makes the car look that much better... At night, YOU CAN SEE... BUT it does mess up your perception a bit... It feels like you're driving with low beam lights or something is messed up with your headlights....

I personally wouldn't do it because I like to drive the mountain roads at night and I wouldn't want ANYTHING to get in the way of my sight behind the wheel of my M3......and other reasons :taser:

It looks cool though...I'd probably recommend 50% if you really want the tint, if you don't race through the mountains at night, and even if you want to avoid a fix it ticket.....

A) Is this why so many a**holes drive around with their high beams on?

B) If it feels like your low beams are on when your high beams are on... jesus, what's the point here. Feel free to kill yourself, but you better not wander into my lane, or the back of my bike or into my neighbor's kid chasing their ball into the street as you.... nevermind.

I see nothing here that sunglasses wouldn't cure and can't imagine why a script would make it legal, but then again, politicians aren't exactly the smartest people on earth.

That looks atrocious.

And sacrificing how well you can see out of your car to look "sick" is one of the worst ideas I've heard in this section... which carries some serious meaning.

Funny to hear all of these opinions and only a few that have actually done this. 35% tint is hardley noticeable while in the car. It will not hinder your night driving, it does not make you blind, and it does not completely block your vision. Yes, there will be less light entering the car at night (from a pure statistical standpoint, not a practical standpoint), but it is NOT noticeable. Switching between cars at night with one having 35% tint on the windshield and one without--you will not notice any loss of visibility. You will still see kids running in the streets, you will still see people on their bikes, and it will not cause you to wander across lanes (wtf?, I was unaware that window tint caused one to be drunk).

You probably expected all of these responses because almost everyone on this forum drives a racecar, and we all know that racecars do not have tinted windows.

Yes, I am in the minority here and do have 35% on the windshield. It does not hinder my night driving, but it ABSOLUTELY does reduce the interior temps of car when parked on a hot summer day. Maybe we should all disconnect the self-dimming rearview mirror because when it darkens, it becomes a black hole hanging from the windshield…

Take the FACTS for what they are and make your own decision.

I agree, I also have 35% on all my windows and it doesn't hinder my vision or sacrifice mine or anyone else's safety. Nobody even notices mine is tinted but like you said, it drastically reduces interior heat in the summer and saves my interior from sun damage.

I switch between the two cars I own all the time. One has a tinted windshield, the other does not. I am not kidding myself, my night driving is not hindered with the tinted windshield.

Rain or dampness does not make driving at night any more or less difficult between the two cars.

I got 20% all around and 35% on my windshield and it doesn't bother me, but that's just me i don't track the car, I don't "drive in mountains at night", I just drive the car from point A to point B and have a little fun in it when its safe.

It's your car, you do what you want to it. If you do it and you don't like it, just simply take it off. That's what i thought when i got mine done, if I didn't like it I would have just took it of, it's not like you'll be losing hundreds of dollars, mine cost me $30. It hasn't bothered me so I still have it on, but it's your car you do what you want to it.

Trust me; I do not need any lessons in 'science.' And, judging by the picture of the racecar in your signature, you will never agree with me. I will still try because I am bored and amazed at the ignorance in here...

I said that the window tint is hardly noticeable while in the car. I can still see out the winshield just fine, the visibility is not affected in any perceivable way to compromise anyone's safety.

Since almost everyone is jumping on the "you are an idiot for tinting your front windshield bandwagon," lets use some real-world experience to answer the question:

I believe it is fair to say that a lot of people on this board have some of their windows tinted. To those that have 35% tint on their windows, except the windshield, can you still see safely out your side-view mirrors? Can you still see out the side windows? Can you still see out the back and with the rear-view mirror?

I would expect everyone to say their visibility is not affected (considering any and all practical purposes)--but maybe they will disagree due to the tone set in this thread. Visibility should be even worse out of the side and rear windows because there is less light transmission through the side and back windows at night (headlight face forward so most of the light will be reflected and transmitted back through the windshield); however, you can still see just fine. What is the significant difference with the windshield? Does it magically become a curtain when tint is applied, but the other windows dont?

To those that have 35% tint on their windows, except the windshield, can you still see safely out your side-view mirrors? Can you still see out the side windows? Can you still see out the back and with the rear-view mirror?

I would expect everyone to say their visibility is not affected (considering any and all practical purposes)--but maybe they will disagree due to the tone set in this thread. Visibility should be even worse out of the side and rear windows because there is less light transmission through the side and back windows at night (headlight face forward so most of the light will be reflected and transmitted back through the windshield); however, you can still see just fine. What is the significant difference with the windshield? Does it magically become a curtain when tint is applied, but the other windows dont?

Yes...absolutely. My windows are 35% all around which is as far as I would go. At night on dark side streets it can be a bit harder to see house numbers, etc. And I have very good vision. But putting it on the windshield that I spend the vast majority of the time looking out of? No way. It's such a bizarre idea I can't even comprehend it.

I do have pretty light sensitive eyes, but that's what decent sunglasses are for.

Trust me; I do not need any lessons in 'science.' And, judging by the picture of the racecar in your signature, you will never agree with me. I will still try because I am bored and amazed at the ignorance in here...

I said that the window tint is hardly noticeable while in the car. I can still see out the winshield just fine, the visibility is not affected in any perceivable way to compromise anyone's safety.

I have some pretty light tints on my car. I don't know exactly how dark they are since the previous owner did them - however, my rear windows match the 30% my cousin's car has, and my front windows are lighter (I would guess 40%). Windshield is clear. Occasionally I do have trouble seeing out the side windows - there are times when I've had to roll down the windows just so I can see where I was trying to turn. I cannot imagine driving with my windshield tinted to that extent. Admittedly I drive a lot of roads where there are no sources of light whatsoever.

FWIW, I tend to have better night vision than most.

On my Tahoe I had 5% on the sides and 35% on the windshield. Night driving, rain, dusk, dawn, or any situation that limits visibility made it very hard to see with tint on the windshield.

It does not matter how bright your headlights are the tint will reduce your ability to see and is not a good idea. If you are concerned about your eyes then get a good pair of sunglasses. If you are concerned about heat then get a good sunshade.

I am currently running 15% on the sides and back of the M and it is plenty to keep the car cooler and help with the sun midday.

If some of you are experiencing difficulty observing the road in front of you due to the sun. I found that 50 percent of the direct light can be cut out using the cholo curtain beads that I presently rock across my headliner. Sometimes it's not enough though, so I raise half the right side of car up with of course ma hydraulic suspension system just enough to get my rearview mirror to block out the rest. Not alway a good move. Ma 12" rims w/ the 225 tires (representen) gets all jacked up.

The best way I found to avoid the sun all together is really just to stare at the mural of my wife on the hood of the car. Ha Ha side note: Ma wifey thinks it's her, she don't know it's one of b!tches on the side.

To be honest, I am not sure if my front is 50% or 35%. I do know that it is not enough to cause problems while driving at night.

There is already a film in the front winshield to prevent the windshield from shattering during an impact. Not sure where your tint guy gets his information, or why you would ever want the windshield to callapse or shatter during any impact.

You have been watching a few too many Chuck Norris movies. Turns out, you can't kick through the windshield. So, tint will have no impact on that.
Bad idea. It's a pure show car and hardly ever driven on the street... sure go for dark windshield tint. Everyday driver that you drive in rain, dark, etc... absolutely not. I have 35% on all my windows and I could never imagine having to look through the windshield with that tint on.
I love that the very first reply from a guy about what someone should "absolutely not" do in terms of visibility, comes from a guy with his head light lenses tinted dark as hell. Yeah, you're a good source for info. Of course you wouldn't be able to see.

I have put 40% (really, 38) on the windshield of my last 5 cars with dark tint on the rest of the windows and haven't had problems seeing out of the front windshield yet. If I can see to back up just fine late in the evening through the 20% back window without an added light source, I'm pretty sure at night, the badass projector lights that are on the M3 are more than enough light source for me to see through the tinted windshield and not be "unsafe". I love how most of the people shooting it down contradict yourselves AND haven't tried driving with a tinted windshield. Hell, our first expert was the guy that tinted the actual headlight lenses...that's great for night driving. Wow.

lol no. That's not at all what happens to a windshield. I thought everyone knew what a windshield consisted of, especially car enthusiasts! I've never had anyone sit down and explain it, I just have seen enough broken ones to understand and figured others are the same. You guys act like it's made the same as a side window lol. Wow. Windshields don't shatter into thousands of pieces lol, or even hundreds of pieces. Can something come through them? Sure, with the right circumstances, but even then, they don't shatter.
Again, quit watching Chuck Norris jump kick someone through the windshield. That's not really how the glass up front works. A windshield is made of laminated safety glass. It's an automotive standard for auto manufacturers required by the government. This is what makes them spider web in tons of directions when a baseball hits them...instead of shattering the glass. Tinting a windshield won't alter anything in that regard...

Also I dunno how you drive but when I drive 95% of my attention is generally focused on what is in front of me. That being said I want that attention to not be hindered by things such as window tint.

95% eh? So that's what it takes for window tint to be insginicant? if you only look out a window 5% of the time, it is acceptable to tint?

Again, there is already a film inside a windshield to prevent it from shattering and showering the vehicle occupants with pieces of glass. With a great enough impact, the windshield will crack, but it does not go everywhere. Since winshields are also tempered, they will crack into many tiny pieces--not shards of glass. In fact, all the windows on a car are tempered; this is why they break into many pieces the are (for all intesive purposes) uniform--not swords of death like when you break a plane of glass on a house (although new construction, double pane windows are also tempered in new construction; so think of breaking a window when you were a kid). The reason the side and rear window shatters and goes everywhere is because there is not film in the glass--not so with windshields.

the stigma associated with a tinted windshield is propagated by those who have never had it done. 35% on the windshield is not that big of a deal. i have had it done before. no problems. daytime, nightime, rain, or shine... the only drawback would be the ticket. and that is only likely if you are pulled over for something else and the cop decides to throw the book at you. if you have a doctors excuse for tinted windows (which isnt hard to get) then there are absolutely no worries. but to each his own.

I would never tint my windshield... but some of the medication I'm on makes my *skin* sensitive to light (and one of the lesser effects of the actual disease I'm treating is making my skin sensitive to light, so it's kind of a double whammy). Sunglasses won't do **** for my skin. Now I personally have a dark complexion, so I can get away with "abusing" my skin with the light moreso than white people with the same disease/medication.

It's a moot point for me anyway since PA doesn't allow tints even with a medical excuse. The only thing a medical excuse allows over here is an optically clear UV-blocking film....

this thread is great.

Short story. It was a cold, damp, autumn morning. The sun, just beginning to show itself to the central US, was beginning to light up the sky. I guess we could say it was dawn, around 5 or so in the morning. My dad was just leaving the house, heading to work in his pickup. This pickup had 35% tint on the side windows. We lived on the corner of a semi busy road and a neighborhood street. The main street was lit up by street lamps at this time. Just like any normal person, my dad looked left, then right, and then left again. Seeing that there were no oncoming cars, my dad proceeded to make his left hand turn onto the semi busy road, which at this hour, was not very busy at all. Unbeknownst to him, a high school kid, driving intoxicated at 10 or 15 over the 45mph speed limit, was barreling towards him, without his headlights on. My dad never saw him coming and was struck directly in the driver side door.... blah blah blah

With 35% tint, my dad didnt see the car coming that hit him. Yes the kid didnt have his lights on and was speeding.. but still, think if my dad was heading towards him head on with say 35% tint on the windshield, and the kid, possibly swerving all over the road after heading home from a night of partying.. could of ended worse i suppose.

i just think it'd be safer without 35% tint.. i guess everyone has their own opinion... i believe mine to be more logical, however.

There's a reason why glass is transparent. The minute you think that tint is an improvement in respect to visibility, then your fooling yourself. With that, I'm gilty myself of having 35% all around EXCEPT the windshield. I for one drop my window even in the dead of winter to better view a potention T-bone scenario especially on blind intersections. Extra percaution is an understatement if your looking out of your windshield with 35% on it.

Since my windshield is 2% I had a custom fab done where I can fold it up at night so I can see better.

yeah this was a while back, he is all good. The kids car went up under my dads truck. I was just saying 35% is still dark at times so I would not want it on my windshield.

and I always roll my windows down at night time since my sides are 20%... I do not agree with having the front windshield tinted but to each his own. I think it LOOKS awesome but would personally never do it.

You guys should also keep in mind that the stock glass without any film is already about 70% VLT. 35% on top of that would bring it down to 25%. If they had tint films that were kinda like those transitions lenses, where they'll be dark in the sun and clear when there's no sun, I'd consider getting that. Otherwise no windshield tint for me.

I didn't think about that. How do you deal with the skin condition? Do you have to apply SPF75 sunscreen every day? other than someone in your condition, I don't see why anyone would ever need their front windshield tinted, unless they had a death wish. And there are much quicker ways to go if that's what they're looking for :carradine:

If you cause an accident you're going to be boned to hell when the cop sees it an files it in the report. I can see bad things coming to you from your insurance company denying to pay because you were driving a street-illegal car (I'm sure there's some clause in your insurance that states you car must be street legal) and you'll probably get your ass sued by the people that you hit.

Well I don't always take the precautions I'm supposed to... Usually nothing happens. Sometimes I get sunburned (back in the day when I wasn't on such medication, I was able to spend hours at the beach with no sunblock without having to worry about getting burned). I do avoid the sun more than I used to, and I do wear sunblock in more situations than I used to. Like I mentioned, I do have a darker complexion, so I can get away with more than someone of a lighter complexion who is on the same medication/has the same condition.

It's certainly not bad enough for me to consider tinting the windshield. Even if it were, I would prefer to just wear long sleeve shirts or something.

loved the look on their faces though when they put that lil meter on my windows and realized they were wrong. ever since those episodes though i think im just gonna do a dark strip across the top.

I just had my front windshield done today with 50% and i love it as i had 70 before i had to change my windshield due to a 18 wheeler throwing rocks at it. I'm very happy and pleased with the results. :thumbsup2:

Searching threads on window tints as I'm looking to have my car re-tinted - tint from PO is semi-peeling in some places and scratched in many, figured I was due for something new.

Currently it's got 35% all around (I THINK)... and I'm debating what % to go on my JB / Black M3.

Part of me wants 20% all around, with none on windshield... but I feel that that will probably attract unwanted attention from the local police.

Other option is ... 35% all around, with perhaps 50% on the windshield?
OR, 35% on side windows, 20% on rear window, and 50% on the windshield?

OR just 35% all around, with nothing on the windshield.

I skimmed most of this "ridiculous" thread, and there was some good and some bad information... but anyone have any pictures with the above mentioned options? Can anyone sway me one way or another?

Thanks in advance...

Looks like this thread may never completely die...

....not if you bring it back to life. But since you did already, I'll chime in.

I for one like tint... I mean tint done right. Tint should flow from front to back without changing too much of the percentages. IMO, no more than 2 if you want the rear glass darker but I don't think thy really adds to the tint job.

So the things to consider. State laws and if you care to follow them. Find a good installer that has experience in BMW dot matrix. Then percentages. I went with Wincos 30 sides and back tint on my AW. Plenty dark for me, reduces inside temps and easy to see thru day or night. I'll be going back to Lee Berbs in Hillsborough NJ for my front windshield in the Spring. That will be Wincos 60 which I believe lets in 68%. The 30 lets in 34% I think.

Also keep in mind, the old tint from the PO is faded to some extent so don't use that as a basis for your percentage decision. A good installer will also semi-remove your door trim do a cleaner job. Here are some pictures of my car being done...

Why wouldn't one just do this? It's a cheap solution, gives you your tint for your eyes, and will keep visibility the same at night since you can just take them off. :jawdrop:
