    Looks good but is it Legal? Looks dark... Type of film used?

    Window tint darkness in Illinois
    The percent of visible light allowed through your car windows is called VLT: Visible Light Transmission. The percentage of light allowed through your film and glass in Illinois is very specific and different for sedan cars and SUV cars or vans.

    Tint darkness for sedans:
    • Windshield: Non-reflective tint is allowed on the top 6 inches of the windshield.
    • Front Side windows: Must allow more than 35% of light in.
    • Back Side windows: Must allow more than 35% of light in.
    • Rear Window: Must allow more than 35% of light in.

    It's not legal. It's 15% back 20% front with ceramic tint. All my cars have dark tint and have never had a problem.

    Looks super but legal is legal. Had to remove tint on two different cars so now we play by the book or at least closer than before.

    Killer look! Well done.

    I went with ceramic as well for my phantom black charger, but chose limo (5%) for the back and 35% for the front. I have stopped blending in the front and back or making it appear too close as it gets unnecessary cop attention..lol.

    My personal experience has been that if there is a noticeable contrast, you could slide past the cops and it gives the illusion that you have 70% in front as that's the acceptable norm here in CA(wierd..I know).
