Hey Guys,

I just picked up the new ES in Electric Blue and I'm loving the car. Brings me back to high school haha

Curious to see if any of you guys have tinted your windows already and the %.

I'd like to gauge the pics to see how dark or light I should go.


Thanks in advance!

Awesome thanks for the pics guys! I forgot to mention I'm in Florida haha

I believe the tint laws are around 15% for the rear and 30% on the sides

When you're looking at it at the same level as the window it's pretty easy to see through. Look at it from regular height and it looks blacked out. It's perfect if you ask me.
Beautiful pics, makes me wonder if I should've got the ES in Red! Thanks for those angles! I'm sold on the 20%, I was gonna go 15% all around but it may be just be a bit dark.

Where did you get the black outs for your tail lights?
Are you asking me? I did mine myself. Rustoleum spray tint and automotive clear coat. Sanded them with 800 than 1200 grit and then laid down a basecoat of tint. When that dried I put down another coat then wet sanded with 1200 > 1500 > 2000 > 3000. Then I laid a third coat down and did the same wetsanding steps. Once that was sufficiently smooth I laid down a base of clear and let it dry. On the second clear coat I did the same wetsanding steps as earlier, then laid down a third coat of clear. I did the same wetstanding steps, but then added in 3 levels of polish: Meguiar's 105 followed by Megs 205 followed by PlastX. I also seal them with Chemical Guys Jetseal (along with all of the paint on the car) every 6 months.
