    I’ve been in Myrtle Beach for a little over two years and totally forget about having window stickers. We have a registration sticker on our plates. Do not know about inspections because both of cars are new.
    Couldn’t you have your tinter cut a corner out to allow for the stickers?

    I've thought about that, but it would make it too obvious that I have windshield tint. When I have the top down, you can't even tell there's tint on it, 50% is already very light.

    Edit: Looks like they make clear double sided removable film for your stickers now, specifically for tint.

    After running no windshield tint for a couple months, I find myself constantly putting my sunglasses on and off. I think I’m going to look for something very light for the windshield again. 80% if I can find anyone carrying it, and just double the 5% tint strip length on top so it comes down more.

    Even with no windshield tint, all it takes is a cloudy day for everything to look blacked out 2886D899-D899-42E5-967D-B1E19591E739.jpeg 9C71F00E-3D75-45C3-B09D-D3A0F8011B6B.jpeg

    Do you notice any color distortion or issues with driving at night? What about wearing polarized sunglasses.

    No issues at night at all. Some of my polarized sunglasses do give me a rainbow effect but it’s minor. I have no issues with my Serengeti drivers. Very glad I did it.

    Love driving over the Ravenel bridge in the background.

    526 loop is fun driving as well.

    Tint looks good!

    Yes. I have Pinnacle F1 30% on door and rear, nothing on windshield. Makes a huge difference. I had a Mgnum that had a 20% metallic on the doors and I could feel the heat on my arm and face. Don't really feel it much if at all with the 30% ceramic.

    Edit: Forgot to mention I'm in SWFL.

    In New York they test the windows during the yearly inspection now. I am looking to get 3m crystalline. If I want to stay legal 70% is max on the windshield and side windows. But the windows themselves must block some light, so wouldn't even a 70% tint be illegal?

    Put ceramic on the windshield. Takes heat rejection to the next level. Worth every penny!
