Well here's how my tC looks. I guess I was goin for a more darker vibe with the darker percentage of tint (maybe it came from me watching Batman Begins or something?..) I kinda wanted the windows to match with the panoramic sunroof Anyway it came out nice I think. The springs changes the look completely though, and it's really evident in the back, and when you look at the car from the side, the rims seem bigger and the car seems longer from front to rear. What do you guys think?

This is before (obviously)


After


A shot of the rims with the springs


In better lighting






Matching the windows with the moonroof


Disregard the law... no front plates and illeagal % of tinted front windows

Apply for a permit and say its a passenger hire vehicle! (Taxi, Limo, etc). They let them have the darkest tints.


Looks great though! I'd be too afraid to do that, Ohio cops suck.

black looks sweet but i can imagine getting a black car i got the next darkest color which is the flint mica and it seems i have to wash it every other day sometimes plus the heat out here in the desert would be a no no!!! ...but looks bad ass never the less


but i do agree once i droped my car 2inches the look of the car changes 180 degrees makes a big difference. Which springs did u get?

thanks kurve. For the springs I bought the Tein Htechs, which lowered it 2' in the front and 1.5' in the rear, rather subtle compared to the Stechs which is 2.4' in the front and 2' in the rear. With mine the gap is just barely visible.

Thnx maareaa you got good taste. I saw your tC its nice. I'm liking your spoiler, would you ever consider putting some lowering springs. That would kill the look
, only thing is that you gotta watch it when you roll on driveways, speedbumps are no problem.

What percentage of tint did you use on the windows to match the % of tint that the sunroof has? It looks awesome.
I used 15% all around. Kurve's right that you can't get it identically alike with the sun roof but it's close enough.

We do have great taste don't we?
I'm really diggin the tint! So much I think I'm going to replace my mirror fade tints. I bet it looks sleek at night! Yea I've been thinking about lowering but I'm not sure yet. We shall see!
