    Is Metallic Tint worth it as opposed to standard dye tint on our optimas? I will be tinting my 2014 SWP Optima and was wondering if i should go with metallic film. Would it also cause interference with sat radio, navigation and radio?

    Metallic tint can interfere with the radio, gps, phone, radar detectors, etc. Basically anything that needs an electronic signal from outside of the car. Personally I would never use a metallic tint...

    I've got limo metallic tint on rear window and not one single issue. GPS, radio sirius all work perfect.

    Very nice. I have done before with 5% back and 20% front. Loved it and will probably do it again.

    Does anyone in NC, specifically the Fayetteville or Raleigh/Durham area know of a tint friendly inspection shop? Time to get my yearly inspection and it'll be the first I've done with illegal tint.. first ever actually lol.. traded in my other 2 cars before the 2 year texas inspection time was up.

    If nobody has any shops in particular (pm me if yes please).. then what should I be asking for/offering when I go into an inspection place to poke around and see if they will pass me? How much is normal to slide em under the table or whatever lol?

    edit: nvm found a place today and gave the guy an extra $50 under the table.. good for another year. What is the ticket cost for window tint in NC by the way? I haven't had problems yet even with a cop checking out my car and didn't mention the tint but I haven't been pulled over for anything so there was no reason for them to start nit-picking **** anyways

    I got a question maybe some texans can answer. I looked up texas tint laws and it says you need to have some kind sticker certifying the tint. Anyone knows if they will allow vehicles that have been tinted out of state ?
