Hey there,

I'm moving to LA in May for an internship. I was wondering how strict the Cali laws are on tinting windows? I know the front windows have to allow 70% or more of light in. I just got my windows tinted to 15%.

Should I remove the two front window tints? (Driver side and passenger side)

Thanks in advance!

The rear doors & rear window can be as dark as you want them, but the front have to be 70%. So your 15% is not going to make it. You'll get pulled over on a regular basis. CA is anal about their car laws.

You could try to rock out of state plates and just wait to get busted. You will, like stated above. It is just a reason to pull you over.

I just scheduled to get them removed. There goes $50 bucks for removal along with the original cost. Woops.

Why not wait until you get pulled over for it?... I've been with my car for 2 1/2 years with the same tint and it hasnt happened yet.

I don't want to risk it. Also, it was a bit too dark at night. I'm getting Airblue tint in the front I think.

i have 30% in the fronts and haven't gotten pulled over yet. driven past cops multiple times.

i would definitely be careful of downtown LA where cops will likely pull you over for the fix-it tickets. smaller cities/towns are fine.

Oh okay. Cool.
Mine are 15% in the fronts as well and the rear are limo tint which is 5% i think.
I haven't gotten pulled over. I use to with the limo tint was all the way around.
