Default keep getting pulled over for tint....any possiblee way to get tint inside the glass

bought my ss with 3%film on the glass.....got pulled over twice now and they metered it andsaid 3%.........if i can buy glass with built in tint, i can pass it as factory and say it was a government issued vehicle or hgihway patrol vehicle.......is there a company that i can buy custom glass from with tint built inside the glass? i know it owuld be pricy but the black on black on black.

i dont think any vehicle has ever been offered with factory tinted from windows but if you really want this done your gonna most likely have to take your current windows out and bring them to a local glass shop. Here in jersey i recommend my kitchen customers to a custom glass shop. they can do anything you want so if you plan to do this you should start researching some local shops

i had 15 on my car and i kept getting pulled over wasnt worth the money so i removed the tint until my car is now longer my daily driver

I guarantee that you will not get that passed. What's the darkest % you can have in your state?

You'd probably have better luck trying to get a doctor's note for an eye or skin condition..

pa is one of the strictest, only allowing 70%........yea i know my car probly didnt have the b4c option, but cops will never know.....if i show them that it isnt film, and it actually is inside the glass, maybe they would let me go.......i even considered buying those fake b4c police badges from fast toys performace, but didnt wanna ruin the exterior of my car......lol the first time i drove the car was at night, and backing up is terrible....i still really look left to right when backing out at night like crazy, and really inch the car. if i were to do this i would just buy used glass and get that done, then replace mine.......any idea what thpse guys in jeresy would cost

A cop isn't gonna know what B4C means, so it would be a waste of time to put those badges on your car. Just have your tint done in like 35% or something reasonable. Limo tint will get you pulled in just about every state.

no iknowc they wontknow what it means...on he badge it says police interceptor. just say it was an unmarked police intereceptor i got at a sheriffs auction. it will be a lot more convincing if they see the tint inside the glass vs external

no, that would be a huge waste of money, just get over the idea of having insanely dark tint.

Renault & some Citroen's had front windscreen tint from the factory looks almost purple. I see them driving around and wonder how they get away with it.
My g/f got pulled by some **** police woman for having very light green tint on her Volvo and getting fined! that's after being pulled twice for speeding in that car once at night & them not saying anything about it.

Ive had 4% On two mr2s, and my current camaro and haven't gotten pulled for it or even had it mentioned during a stop. Legal here is 27%.

Winner.


Get light tint if you want to scave by with legalities. I have 30% and havnt had any issues. When I had 5%, nothing but problems.

Your best bet is to try an eye dr, and get a slip or go to a lighter tint, those are your only 2 options, dark tint looks great but is more hassel than its worth,i know a cop that has limo on his truck and 15% or something crazy like that on his front windshield,i asked him if he ever got pulled over,he just said no im a cop lol

You don't want to get pulled over anymore? Then change the tint. Have it taken off and put lighter tint on there, at least 40% tint you can see through.

Cops may be dumb, but if you try lying to him and saying it was built into the glass from the factory, and if he catches you in that lie, you'll be in a lot more trouble than its worth.

Kinda of a jackass statement don't you think. It takes a lot to do what they do and you just sit back on the Internet and talk **** about them. Sounds like you need to learn some damn respect and walk a mile in there shoes.
