I just got it done this afternoon!!.... I got Madico 50% bronze tint all around and I think it looks pretty good with the color of my car. I paid $210 CDN for all five window, with a lifetime warranty.
The law varies from province to province, and here in Alberta, the law says that you cannot have any tint past the front beam.... so basically you cant have your side windows tinted. Ontario I know you can have a certain percentage, but I am not sure of the other provinces.
3/4 of my cars have been tinited now, and I have not had one ticket....its only $28, but they (cops) usually will scratch a big chunk out of your window or make you scrape it off right on the spot.. The RCMP (federal cops) are known for being real dix about tinted windows... they even will tow your car if you do not comply with them.

I feel I would be slightly ****ING MAD What the ****.
Let the court handle it.
But................. Thats my OP
I always see people driving around with big X's in their front windshield, or huge chunks missing. They do this so that it looks so ridiculous that you have to take the rest of it off. And that is even worse because then you are stuck with cleaning all the glue off which makes a huge mess, and during rain and on cold days, it fogs up instantly
GHost...thanx....I also thought that it looked kinda like what a factory tint would look like. The guy told me that it would look closer to factory when he was done, and when I came back, I saw he was right... I liked it.. and maybe I can pull the "its factory, I swear officer" line with the cops (any factory tint is not illegal)
I think in Ontario the law is 35%. I have 15% all around (not windshield) and have never had any problems. Just keep your roof open, and roll down windows when you get stopped (not that I get stopped a lot ... one time for no front plate ... I love Ottawa )
