That I dont now. Because some states require front plates and others dont. I believe it would not affect you until you take up residency.

We can tint the top 15cms of the windshield here. I believe the bottom part is the same.

Of course, mirror tints of any level are illegal.

What was awful?

I never had problems seeing outside, i had max tinted ray-bans, and then bronze mirror tints. Turn on the dome light at night, and you could see through easily.

The silver mirrors and that mirror/black combo i always found ugly.

I have no idea what the laws are here in ontario, I think its 20% for us as well,. but my brother had his 2003 Dakota at 12%, got one warning from a p/o and thats it in almost 5 years of ownership. personally 125 looked good but it was hard to see out off on dark back roads at night.

Tried to search on the ontarian gov site, nada. Tried to look around and found several sites that state that there is no legal %, just that the tint cannot be excessive (talk about subjective).

Yeah but if the officer is behind on his quotas, he might think 30% is excessive. And then you can discuss it in court.
