    I had a shop match my tint on my '16. It has been a year and I havent been bothered by any cops. In Pa where I live it is definitely illegal to have tint on the front windows. I have never had a cop pull me over in a truck, suv, or crossover for window tint. However in a car I have been pulled over and given a ticket 3 times and once had a cop try to tell me I had to scrape it off right there on the side of the road. I have never paid any of the fines because I have a paper from my eye dr about light sensitivity. ( it actually isnt B.S., even with tinted windows I regularly have sunglasses on also ).
    I have had the husky liners in mine for the year also and they have held up great, and the rears can definitely hold a 12oz slushy, cause my son dropped one and they cleaned up in a snap.

    Looks good though!

    So ... You have actually been told to scrape it off, and you were fined. Yet you start out with haven't been bothered by Cops.. If you did not have the medical waiver you would have paid attention to those fines and probably scraped the tint off.....

    All I am saying is all the anecdotal stories by people of never having a problem may mean nothing now. There is no doubt a concerted effort by Police to monitor tinted windows is going to be at an all time high because of the enhanced dangers they are facing when stopping a car. Since I posted just a few days ago I see Tennessee is going to be more vigilant something started in Bristol a few months ago. Maybe not everywhere but the trend means we may have to be more careful not to over tint.

    Some jurisdictions in Ontario Canada are already issuing light meters to law enforcement to actually measure percentage light through the tint. 35% tint on the front windows is the percentage allowed, any lower means a ticket.

    I too hate that front license plate, I ran my Subaru Legacy from 2001-2010 without the front plate and never got pulled over,, when I traded for a 2010 Mazda3 my wife insisted the front plate go on. She figured she would be the one to get ticketed, so in the interest of peace I relented. Happy wife happy life.

    Added some new things to the car.

    The Spytec A119 Dash cam is really great! Install was super easy and clean. Hid the cable very well.
