NONE and FREE..... although I am thinking about doing something really light this Spring. The leather tends to get really hot and I'd also like to keep it from cracking and premature aging. Doesn't seem that the Honda leather hold up to well as it is.

Please post pics of your tint! Anyone have light tint on a San Marino coupe?

Is the stock tint from Honda 20% or 35%?

I have the factory Honda tint, but i'm not quite sure what it is.

I am still looking for a way to prevent the side tint getting scratched. I'm trying to figure out if the 6th Gen window lining will fit on a 7th Gen. My tint guy says 6th Gen lining was much softer and should resolve my problem. You can't tell it from the outside, but on a sunny day the scratches show up very well. It's not bad, just one of those things that pisses you off if you look at it too long.

where do you guys go in the NY/NJ area for a good tint shop? I'm afraid of bubbles, and no guarantee. I'd be willing to pay slightly extra if they could guarantee to fix bubbles if they occurred.

Llumar (forget which one) tint - 45% front / 35% back, vinyl strip on dot matrix - $185 - lifetime guarantee

If I could do it over again, I would put 35% in front, %20 in back.... I like how the front and rear windows look, but the 2 small triangular windows in back look waaay too light.

Sorry... no pics, but I can take some later and post.
