For OP, I have 20% on my car and love it. Would even go darker but afraid of getting pulled over. Whenever I see cops I just push back my sunroof shade and that lets in enough light even with the windows up to not give cops a reason to pull you over

Most states should have a similar policy; just tell your doc that you love the AMG so much you're in it all the time and don't want a dx of skin cancer. Check out your state law for similar language.

"A medical exemption form is available from the Florida Department of Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles website. You must fill out the form, have a doctor sign it, and send $6.65 with the form to the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles. They will send you a certificate that you can carry in your vehicle."

Hey homey- Was that your C4s P Car? If so, how does it handle and what is the power like? Is it a fun car? I think on a road course it could outrun a stock e55? Love this cars, they sound so beastly from the factory

I had the Fabspeed exhaust and it sounded real good. Super fun car to drive just not a ton of power. I only had the car 7 months and was just bored with the power. But as far a corners......the AMGs don't come close but you already knew that. I think one of my favorite cars is the CLS for its looks and power and the Audi RS4 for all around smile on the face. I still would like a nice 996tt if I could find the right one.

My dad has a 996 TT with exhaust, coilovers, short shifter and X50 package. It is silver and only has 16K miles on it, loll. He never drives it, does'nt want to put miles on it. I drove it and and gave it hell. It just asked for more and more, in the corners, forget about it. Thing is slammed too. I will get some pics at our next Cars and Coffee.

How did you like the RS4, I see one of those in my future. Did'nt you also have a 03 RS6. Those things are beasts but I bet the are expensive to fix here in the states.

Never had a RS6 but the RS4 I wish I had held on to. I had the Milltek exhaust, chipped and air intake. It was a hoot to drive.

Yeah you can get tint exemptions for photosensitivity. Going to be writing and receiving scripts for/from my contemporaries for that one.

What medical condition can be used for driving faster than posted speed limits? Anyone?

I agree. 35% all round on my cars (SUV has factory 20% in rear). Looks perfect, keeps out a good amount of glare/heat and doesn't prove too problematic at night.

RS4 is a keeper. Mine is bone stock, but still never driven an Audi with such a perfect blend of road holding and body control as the sporty ones are normally too stiff for their own good. Plus, that engine paired with the 6MT is from god. It's the vehicle that's allowed me to regain sleep after selling my E39 M5 in a moment of madness a few years back.

Really dark does look awesome! Like I said before I Just removed my 35% tints, and actually I am loving the clean tintless look for now, you can see the interior easily and when clean looks great!

I may put up a 75% tint just for UV protection, but I personally don't want to go darker because of tickets/lower visibility.

No, nowhere near after 60 when going in a straight line/freeway. But far better handling. More of a sedan scalpel to the W211 AMG sledgehammer.

Agree......but it didnt need to be as quick. It does everything else so perfect that it really did not tarnish my love for the car. You know me chawk, I have had a few cars and I am telling you, it is the one I most regret selling and I will get another soon. I am trying to sell some crap now to make room.

Wow, that is saying alot there. I love their looks. I bet a full exhaust, cai, and chip would make that a super fun car.
