I've had my HyTi almost 4 weeks now and I just got mine tinted. I too did the 35% up front and 20% rear. Its a cloudy rainy day, but man does it look sweet!

This is NY law ...

Can I have tinted windows on my vehicle?

It depends. Section 375 (12-a) of the NYS Vehicle and Traffic Law does not allow a windshield or front side windows that are dark. The windshield and front side windows cannot block more than 30% of the light. Seventy percent or more of the light from the outside must pass through the window. This law also applies to the rear window unless the vehicle has outside rear-view mirrors on both sides. The mirrors must give the driver a full and clear view behind the vehicle.

If the vehicle is classified as a station wagon, sedan, hardtop, coupe, hatchback or convertible, the rear side windows must also allow at least seventy percent of light from the outside to pass through the window.

It is illegal to sell, offer for sale, or install glass that does not comply with this law. It is illegal to operate a vehicle with glass that does not comply with this law.

If you have a medical condition that requires you to have tinted vehicle windows, you can request an exemption from the law. Request form MV-80W from a DMV Office or Call Center.

 

= = = = =

What this doesn't state is that the full windshield cannot be tinted but only about 6" strip at the top.  I'm considering tint as the interior has been rather hot a few times so far.

That looks really good.  I'm rather jealous as I live in Michigan.  I can tint the back and the rear windows, but not the front windows beyond the top four inches.  I had tinting like that on my Beretta and it just looks awful.  As a result I refuse to get my windows tinted at all.

How about LLumar Formula One Air Blue 80 Ceramic tint?  It's not as dark but it still does a good job of keeping heat and UV's out of the car, if that is your goal.

That's a good idea and I'll give it some deeper thought.   I actually want that dark look though... I think it makes just about any car look better to have a dark rear window and dark tint all around.
