Default Guess you shouldn't drive your ZL1 on slicks and skinnies...

or have a tinted windshield

J/K

We were doing a shoot and that was the photographers car (which is an ex-police car) so I thought it would be sorta cool to get a stage hot of it "pulled over"

Knock on wood, no issues driving around like that yet

I read this title and thought "great here comes the ZL1 haters". Seems like white is a very popular color on this car.

What's the % tint on that window? I want my windshield tinted, but not sure how dark I wanna go. Probably 35 or even just a 50.

Sweet ZL1!

Once you have a tinted front windshield you will never have a car/truck without it.

go with 40-50% tint. 35% is just a slightly to dark/noticeable. plus f-bodys headlights are not the greatest

I get the need for slicks, but skinnies on a street driven car are just lame.

That ZL1 looks sick! I'm wondering about the windshield tint too. How's it look on the inside? Night driving probably sucks a little.

only time it sucks is when its raining really bad or its a really really dark road... my tinted windshield is on my f350 so the headlights are alittle better than my camaro.

That's why I got rid of the 35% that came installed on my car. You can get a doctors note for it in some states, otherwise it is illegal everywhere.

To say it was AWESOME during the day is a huge understatement! Greatly cut down on glare, interior temps were much lower, and it looked really good. At night it was fine when in the city but not very good when there wasn't outside light, so anyone living in a well populated area wouldn't have a problem here. The HIDs on my car really helped it at night too, I could see it making a car too hard to drive at night in the worst conditions and with bad lights. I'm sure it would be HORRIBLE driving where there are no street lights at night with rain as that is bad with a non-tinted windshield.
