With the conditions there I'm thinking of tinting my car windows. Does anyone know what the % limits are for DFW area? I wouldnt want a ticket from the cops for having too much tint.

Another question is: the solar shades they sell for home windows...how much do they work/cost?

If I remember correctly auto window tint comes in three layers: light, medium, Limo/Dark (blackout).
Texas allows light and medium on the side windows. The Limo/Dark tint in the rear and rear side windows.
Having the Limo/Dark tint on the side or drivers window is not legal and can get you a fine.
The auto detail shop should be able to give you the specifics. The legal tint will have a decal for your
window indicating the tint is within specs.


The window screens can run from $50-$75. Depends on the size of the window and the screen darkening level you ask for: light, medium, dark. It does help out cutting down the amount of sunlight coming into the home.

Window tint laws can be found here (http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/vi/misc/faq/tint.htm - broken link) (after a quick Google search). Basically 25% tint (at least 25% of light is transmitted) is allowed all around, except nothing on the front windshield below the "AS-1" line, or 5" from the top of the windshield.
