Default Tint.

About to make the jump into buying a miata finally with in the next week or two. Going with a 95... anyway i would like to purchase a black or midnight blue miata...
and Get some tint eventually anyway my question is how many of you guys have tint and get pulled over for it. I dont want to get pulled over several times a month looking hella shady.

On my subaru I only get pulled over for a loud exhaust. They don't seem to care too much about tint in oklahoma. When I went to school in Youngstown OH I know they had a no tolerance policy. Classmates were getting cops pulling guns on them cause the cop "couldn't see the driver"

Is tint illegal in PA? I've got the darkest legal tint you can have in FL and I wish I'd gone a little darker. I think the limit here is 35% on the sides and 20% on the back. It seems like they won't mess with you unless it's obviously too dark (5% or something). I really don't feel like miatas draw much attention from cops anyway, unless you go with something crazy dark I don't think it will really be an issue.

Cops don't care around here about anything really. I've passed right by cops with a half assembled RX7 with no exhaust, no hood, no hatch, inside all torn up, bumpers missing, speeding... still didn't come after me. I have been pulled over I think once or twice in the Miata and neither time did they bring up my dark tint, which I think is probably over legal.

Thats how it was in NY, even upstate but NY is strict on everything. I guess it depends on the cop sometimes their your friend most times their ********.
