Hey all,

So I am likely pulling the trigger on 50% XPEL Prime tint next month. Got what I feel is a reasonable price. I am in NY, I am aware of the inspection requirements, my question was more for other New Yorkers with tint, have you had many problems with being pulled over, etc? Thinking with just 50% no one will bother me but wanted to hear others experiences.

Thanks

I have 45% on my model 3 and it’s really not noticeable at all. I’m in PA and it’s more than allowed, but I’m quite comfortable that there is 0% chance of getting pulled over because of it.
I have 30% on my model X and there is some chance of getting stopped because of it. Cop friends tell me to just roll down front windows if I get stopped. Biggest concern of officers is their own safety as they approach the car.
