MN is 50% and the guy at the tint shop almost refused to do 50%, he said I would be back for 40% or darker as 99% of people who go 50% do, so he wouldn't take my money for the 50%. He was right I went with 40% and was happy. Sucks you would fail inspection for it.

70% is good as long as it's ceramic tint. I have it on my windshield, small side windows and rear window. It blocks out a noticeable amount of heat and UV light.

So far the guys in our area are refusing to do anything that would be a legal tint because enough people are getting the tint stripped, inspecting the car and coming back for the same tint they had... I guess they feel enough people will do this every year for inspection

Edit: Jungle Flares gone, finally took them off
