    Hey everybody.

    I've been thinking of getting the windows tinted on my justa.

    I have used mr. Tint in the past and they did a great job. Just wondering if there what options are out there. Price or install quality.

    Just looking to do legal tint for Ohio.

    Thanks.

    Quality has always done a good job for me. When it gets warm my WRX will be paying them a visit.

    05r50, there is no aftermarket LEGAL tint in Ohio for front side windows and windshield although most get away with 50% or lighter. To me, no one stands out above the rest so I would recommend that if you have been happy with Mr. Tint, continue to use them.

    We used Quality as well on our clubman. Happy with the job they did.

    Unless the 2004 law was repealed it states that in Oh the " % of visible light transmission for front side windows is 50". Rear and rear sides are any. And no reflective or mirror.

    Tolerance is 3%.

    That is all I meant by legal. No reason to get a ticket just to go a shade darker.

    If there is someone in the area that uses Hüper Optik brand it is sure worth the extra cost.

    I'm thinking about some tinting too. But, I'm putting my dogs in the back some and am afraid they will scratch it. Any thoughts on that?

    Monk never did anything to mine, but he tends to just go to sleep on car rides. Nose prints were too many to count, but you just clean them off quickly after and it is not an issue.

    If you can't find a good place in OH, I know this guy WETINTCARS.COM in Indianapolis does a fantastic job. He did both my cars.

    I had mine done at Ziebart and it comes with a lifetime guarantee. If anything goes wrong with it, they replace it for free. It's guaranteed not to discolor, etc. They have a special tint that blocks all UV rays so it doesn't destroy the interior.

    Excellent tint! I have it on my MCS and my fiance has it on his BMW Coupe.
