Hey Tricky, I'm from the island, I have an 07 coming in this july, and my dealer, out east in riverhead said they will tint any percentage. They had told me that 35% no problems.. were did you get the 70percent from?

Tint shops and dealers will put on any tint. There are no laws saying that dark tint may not be applied. Its just that cars on the street can not have dark tint. Its a loop hole. The dealer could give a shit less about you and your tints. Once he sells you the car, he's done. Plus, carefull with dealers installing tint, usually they SUCK and they WAY overcharge. Go to a window tinting place.

cool im getting a rabbit or gti this summer too prob the rabbit since it will be my first car. Yea u can get any tint u want but its not legal. I got the 70% from the nys dmv website and also in that link posted above it says it too. I have some family friends that are cops and they say they dont write too many tint tickets unless u are violating another law (speeding, no seat belt ect.) I will probably tint darker then legal but stay above 35% cause that is real noticable.

Uuhhh NY tint law is 35 on sides and anything on back and only a strip on the windshield last time i checked...
 
In my RSX I got pulled for 35%. They seem to only go for the ricers so keep your car clean, don't do anything stupid and you should be fine. If you're really worried don't do it. I personally love the stock blue tint on the white.

Ive had my run ins and problems with NY cops. Odds are you wont get pulled over for tints. But once you do get pulled over, you better believe that you're gonna have another ticket tacked on.
