Two questions for you:
1. Do you recommend I do it and
2. If yes, what % (I'm in NYC where cops have bigger fish to fry).

I have always loved white cars with dark tints. That said, I have always been slightly adverse to doing mine because the black tint won't match the black vert top and I hate that it wont be a clean look. And when the top is down the windows are usually down so its an issue only with the top up.

What do you guys think?
I disagree with #2. You would think that they have bigger fish to fry, but somehow they always find the time to harass you.

I have 20% all around on mine. Like you, I love the way that it looks on White. I finally started getting pulled in my 5th year of ownership. I just keep my windows down while they are in the vicinty now.

They seem to be okay as long as they can see inside the vehicle. It's definitely one of the "pay to play" mods.

Good luck with your decision.
...is rocking a new look!

Special thanks to Mr. AWD for the new sig...
