Whose got tint? Lets see it

Wanting to get some window tint put on the Maxima- was hoping to see some pictures of the different %'s so I can decide if it looks good enough to go below 25% (legal limit) Also how much did you pay?

itís going to very difficult to judge from pictures. Mine is 20% . When itís sunny itís pretty visible through the windows from outside. When itís cloudy itís seems like 5% from outside. I paid 150 with promotion at my local tint shop.

Thanks for sharing! Looks great! What color interior? Did you notice a big difference in temp change when you did it? That's probably my bigger reason for wanting it darker than legal, the looks are a second hand consideration.

Itís black on black with leather interior so it gets very very hot even with tinting.. If youíre concerned about the heat. Ask tint shop about ceramic film. Itís about 100 extra bucks for the tint.

Cooler should be secondary to visibility. I have had darker than legal, it is dangerous and foolish.

Thanks for the heads up!

Are you sayinf visibility through your front winshield or your side windows/rear winshield?

I wasnt planning on tinting the front winshield at all because I use one of those silver reflectors on that but I was planning on going as dark as I need to on the windows/read winshield, unless youíre saying that it made it difficult to drive at a certain percentage.

Whatever you do, stay away from the 99 dollar tint. It will turn purple.

20% all around with a sun strip. only had to pay for the sun strip ($40) because i told the dealer i didn't like the color of the interior so they said if i bought the car they would give me free tinting

here in nyc the legal limit is 35% but the nypd are pretty kool leo's. When they pull me over (2 x's a month) show respect and comply as i know i'm in the wrong by having 20% tint they will not even give you a warning they will just thank you and leave you alone. Now you decide to be a **** and start the "why you pulling me over" nonsense guess what? $120 fine per window ouch! That's 5 windows.

Here in N.C. we can only have 35% on cars (trucks and SUVs are 35 front and whatever behind the driver). So the 'combined' factory and aftermarket is about 32% on my wife's Maxima. Front windscreen is 90% full coverage. My wife says that she can tell a big difference when she gets in the car after sitting in the sun. Got the ceramic film, locally to Charlotte was about $350 total.

Thanks for sharing everyone. Was just telling my wife earlier it might look nice (and cut down on heat) to tint the windows. Appreciate the feedback on ceramic tinting and pics.

Loving my 2018 Platinum I just got over the weekend. I want to tint, but am curious about the rear window shade. Will that get in the way?

2017 Nissan Maxima SR Midnight Edition DigiCut 20% Nano Black window tint, right, front

I got an employee discount at:
DigicutDirect.com

You can now buy cut to fit and pre-shrunk ( heat shrunk to the curved shape of the glass ) window tint Kits and install it yourself for a fraction of having someone else to it.

My MAXIMA was used for sample installation videos.
You can see the window tint being installed on My MAXIMA in this video playlist here:
DigiCut Direct YouTube Window Tint Installation Video Playlist

I also had clear paint protection ( DigiCut's High Definition Extreme ) added to hood, front fender, mirrors, front roof, door handle cups, front pillars, and around the front and back wheel wells. The paint protection is amazing. It can be written on with a sharpie and it will wipe right off. It is hard to tell it is even installed.
