Alright guys, I have been thinking about this, but Im not sure what needs done. I have a 99 v6 sedan with all kinds of aftermarket stuff on it. Im wanting to get my windows tinted about 5% on sides and rear, and possible 35% on windshield. The problem is that cops always stare at my car b/c all the aftermarket stuff, like the wheels and exhaust. So I was trying to figure out if I put some OEM Honda 17" wheels on it and maybe the CL-S exhaust on it, if it would look more stock than aftermarket. B/c I really want to get my windows tinted darker, but I know if I did it now, that I would have a ticket for it by tomorrow, no doubt. Also, Im wanting to do this stuff, b/c Im getting tired of my wheels, and the whole look of my car. I want something different.

I currently have 18" Konig Theory's, Greddy SP2 dual exhaust, Eibach prokit, VIS CF hood, 20% tint windows on the sides and rear, red/clear taillights, TYC black projector headlights, aftermarket foglights. I think that I want to get some oem fogs, possibly retro fit headlights, cl-s exhaust, tl or tsx wheels. That way, if I had those items, then I think my car would be more oem.

If you have any suggestions on what I should do, or where I could get the items I want, or someone who wants what I have, let me know. I want to do most of these things before July when Im going on vacation. Give me any info you have. Thanks guys.

Hmm yeah your car would still look clean if you were to install the TSX wheels and CL-s exhaust but i honestly would keep my car the way it is. maybe for tint, you shouldn't get it the darkest and get the front 2 windows a shade or 2 lighter than the ones your getting for the back doors and keep your back wind shield the same tint as the back doors. Sometimes though cops pull you over for other things and on the way they check for tint. That has happened to me when i rolled a stop sign... although my back windows weren't tinted, the cop still asked me to roll my front windows up (that was stupid of them). Just try to drive really safe so that they wouldn't have a reason to pull you over and when you see a cop on your next lane, try not to end up next to the cop or a little bit in front in the lane next to them (they will stare at your car and see what they can bust you... most likely tint)

Thanks man for the info. I was wandering the tint problem b/c some buddies at school have like 5% tint on their windows and 1 of them even has his windshield tinted about 35%. But, he drives a stock suv. and my car has rims, exhaust......and so on. So that could be y they have not been ticketed for tint. Anyway, I still kind of want to get tl or tsx wheels. Also if I got the cl-s exhaust, Id probably get headers as well. Anyway, thanks for your opinion man.

Anyone else have an opinion?

When you say painting your windshield 35% do you just mean sunstrip or the whole thing?? If whole thing, don't do it at all..I would just keep it how it is now, lots of money for just wanting to go darker tint..you should of taken my retro :(

I already have a 5% sunstrip. And I thought about doing the whole thing, but Id probably get a ticket for it very soon after I did it. I have to sell what I have before I can buy the things I want. Like the tyc's, Konig wheels, SP2 exhaust, and whatever else. thanks for the comments.

I don't think tinting the windshield is legal anywhere, due to the fact that it really messes with your visibility. I have 35% on my front side windows, and it's really hard to see outside the sides at night. On a road without streetlights, forget about it. Do you just not want to drive at night anymore? Do you want to hit pedestrians and run over road hazards? If you go through with this, I'm sure the cops will give you a ticket, and maybe even take your car... because 35% on winshield is dangerous. I actually hope that they do, because this is worse than some of the things even our li'l Klepto does/says/has.

Check what your tint laws are. In Texas you can have all the windows except front driver/passenger and windshield tinted whatever you want. I have 5% + 19% on my back windows...and even if a cop wanted to pull me over for it...they can't give me a ticket.

If you really want to change your towards OEM I would just get some cleaner OEM looking wheels especially of a darker matt. finish, and quieter exhaust like CL-S mufflers, or something of that sort. I have 25% tint all around, and I have been harrased for not having a front plate rather than having tint even though its illegal. I don't know what reasons you trying to go darker, but its up to you :). I might be interested in SP2s if you part them I need an exhaust system :D

Thanks guys for the comments. I think I will leave my car alone for now, unless I can find the stuff I want. I may just get the sides and rear window tinted 5% and leave the windshield untinted. If anyone else has an opinion, let me know. Thanks.

I like the "stock modified" look, im not big into making the car look like its supposed to go faster than it actually does. but when its clean, people notice, trust me.

Yea I did say I wanted to tint my windshield, but Im thinking about not, b/c of cop trouble for sure. Anyway, I would go for the stock modified look, but I need to sell or trade my greddy sp2 dual exhaust, black tyc projector headlights, and 18" Konig Theory's. After getting rid of those, I would want the cl-s exhaust, retro headlights, 17" TSX or TL wheels. Thanks for the comments guys.

5% is pretty damn low... and windshield is a no no. No tint is for gangsters :p

I think that if you got some CL-S wheels and exhaust plus the coupe front bumper, hood, and fenders your car would take on a whole new look and be very clean!

I just bought a CF hood for a sedan, so I dont think I can do that right now. But yea, like I said, Im not doing a tinted windshield. lol. I havent really checked into the cl-s wheels, but if they would look better than the tl or tsx wheels, then that is a possibility. Thanks for the comments.

Here in TN you are allowed to have 70% tint which is basically nothing so IMO not worth it buddy.
Yea, so I will probably just keep the 20% tint and the 5% strip on the top of the windshield. But Im still thinking about the wheel choices. I definately want the cl-s exhaust, but as for wheels, I need some opinions. Thanks.
