Along with the moleskin, (my passenger tint got scratched the first time I lowered the window!) get tint legal for your state. I've read a few ticket issues on the forum over tint. I would also make sure they can do the rear in one piece. Mine is one piece, but my old car was 2 on the rear window, to do that they cut the seam with both pieces installed, and they cut my defrost elements on the inside of the glass. On frosty mornings, the middle didn't defrost. I ordered the moleskin from the site tacobill listed in his write up. It hasn't arrived yet, but I'm trying to keep the windows up until it gets here. It wasn't the cheapest stuff available, but I didn't really look for a deal. Another option is to order the 08 window seals that now come with the felt on them, but they're more expensive. I opted to try to cheaper moleskin first, if it doesn't work well, I'll go for the 08 seals.
Got a web site and any more info on those??

My friend has 35% on his Monte Carlo and I dont think it's nearly dark enough, I plan on going with 20% when i get mine tinted. And just to remind you moleskin is a MUST!!

35% is the legal limit here but if you're only doing that much, honestly, just don't bother. 25% is good but I'd still go another 5 lower if there were any way that I could.

Don't bother?? haha umm pretty sure that 35% looks better than the stock 95% tint that we have just a thought though

I heard that the felts were corrected in the '08 models. Is that correct? I need to get my windows tinted, but I am not sure if I am ok or not. I have an '08.
