    I want to get my front windows tinted, I know there's a legal tint percentage for the front windows but I can't find it anywhere. I checked the motor vehicle act regulations for BC but they don't have anything listed on tint (as far as I could tell). If I can get them tinted, what's the best way, and how would I do it?

    Go ask a tint shop what the limit is. IMO you should have a good shop do it. But you could do it yourself for cheaper.

    lol i wouldn't pay less than $100 for just the front 2 windows because i can't stand a bad tint job, but i wouldn't pay more than $250...

    it's actually pretty easy to do youself i've learned lol just test your abilities on something that's not important haha

    I paid $100 for all 5 in Tennessee back in 09. I'll admit it's not the greatest, but it's a hell of a lot better than I could have done.

    Yeah, it's still on the car and hasn't turned people yet. The cutting job could have been better but like I was saying it's better than I could have done. They even vinyled the top of the rear window.
