Im gonna share a secret! The absolute best way to remove window tint is with a steamer. Just got to walmart and get a cheap steamer and let it heat up then use the steam on the tint and it will pretty much fall off with the adhesive no razor blades required, then wash the interior windows when you are finished

I think 15% is perfect.

ANYTHING on the front windows besides the strip at the top of the windshield that reads darker than 75% is considered illegal in Iowa unless you have a tint exemption card from the eye doctor, then the legal limit is 35%

I had 10% on my IS300.(Originally a Florida car). Got pulled over 3 times within a week by IA state patrol. Received 2 tickets.



Pulled that shit off after that. Not worth it. I miss the tint though.
