Hi guys, just bought an EF XR8 and am looking to tint it.

Dont want to go too dark in case it looks wrong, you guys got any pics of your white cars with tint and also what % light they let through if you know?

Cheers

1st up, welcome

depends on the whole package i think, like it would look good with rims that have black parts

generally, i think tinting looks good no matter what

Darkest legal blue tint cant go wrong. would almost look good on a commodore....nah thats going abit far. but yeah it will look good go for it. Both my fairmonts have dark tinting and the rest is stock and it looks tops.
so will look good on an XR.

35% is the darkest legal your allowed to get but each film differs. I find the non metallic ones to look a little darker than the metallic film.
If your looking for someone to tint your car I can do it for $200. An extra $90 to strip old tint off as well.
PM me if you want more info.

limo tints is 5% but i reckon its hard to drive with it at night.
20% is a little lighter but still illegal.

I have 5% on my rear window ... being a ute/commerical vehicle I am allowed as dar kas I like on the rear window.

But I have 20% on the side windows though ... 35% was too much a difference to put on next to the 5%.

I don't have an issue really at night either. Nice and dark during the day ... and good security-wise when parked in the city doing courier work ... can't see in the cabin.
