    Man you need to give us pictures outside the garage, all I can see is dark

    I think that tint is darker than it really is because it's in the garage.

    Looks nice - is that legal in California? Note the regs require at least 70% visible light transmittance and that tint is not allowed on the windshield itself.
    CA Codes (veh:26700-26712)

    "(d) Notwithstanding subdivision (a), clear, colorless, and
    transparent material may be installed, affixed, or applied to the
    front side windows, located to the immediate left and right of the
    front seat if the following conditions are met:
    (1) The material has a minimum visible light transmittance of 88
    percent.
    (2) The window glazing with the material applied meets all
    requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 205 (49
    C.F.R. 571.205), including the specified minimum light transmittance
    of 70 percent and the abrasion resistance of AS-14 glazing, as
    specified in that federal standard.
    (3) The material is designed and manufactured to enhance the
    ability of the existing window glass to block the sun's harmful
    ultraviolet A rays.
    (4) The driver has in his or her possession, or within the
    vehicle, a certificate signed by the installing company certifying
    that the windows with the material installed meet the requirements of
    this subdivision and the certificate identifies the installing
    company and the material's manufacturer by full name and street
    address, or, if the material was installed by the vehicle owner, a
    certificate signed by the material's manufacturer certifying that the
    windows with the material installed according to manufacturer's
    instructions meet the requirements of this subdivision and the
    certificate identifies the material's manufacturer by full name and
    street address.
    (5) If the material described in this subdivision tears or
    bubbles, or is otherwise worn to prohibit clear vision, it shall be
    removed or replaced."

    I'm going take a better picture later. It should be legal in CA. Back is 35% which is medium and front is light which is 60% I think. Honestly I don't think it's too dark. I see a lot more people on road with a lot worst.
