Yeah 50% tint is hardly worth paying for, but unfortunatly thats what is legal. And even then you might not be. I have 35% on the 4 side windows and nothing on the hatch, we got pulled over and it actually metered at 26%. The factory windows have some tint and therefore when you compound the 2 you will have darker tint.

I have 20% all the way around, and have yet to be pulled over(knock on wood). But my friend got the same tint exacttly, the day before I did and his registered at 12% or something when he got pulled over. The tint on our cars stock is supposed to be 7% I believe. I think I read that somewhere cuz I know Ive heard it. But yeah 50% is pretty light, and 20% is pretty dark :) I love how mine looks.

I have had a Cobra and Whistler. I like my whistler alot and liked my cobra alot too. The whistler is all band and VG2 etc.... its got most of the bells and wistles and works well. My friend paid 300 for his Escort and I honestly feel mine is fine for the 60 I paid. They go off at similar times just his has a lil more distance, and mine goes off at more stores(they use scanning stuff at checkouts etc).
So depending how much cash you got, Whistler, Cobra, Escort etc...

i suggest a valentine one if you have the money...by far the best detector on the market...i believe they do upgrades on the unit rather cheap too...if not free...

im running the second best model...passport 8500 i think...i may have to double check that...but im pretty sure thats what it is
