Check with local laws as the the % limit you can go with. Here in MD, it's 35%...a lot of folks go with 20% and usually are able to get away with it. I've seen a white Azzy with a bronze colored tint...probably the 35%...it looked sharp. If you have the gray interior, then go with a regular smoke tint.
I know there are some states that will only let you tint the rear side windows and not the front side windows...so make sure you find out so you won't run into any issues with law enforcement types.

I have an 07 Azzy Pearl White and have my windows tinted (legal) and it looks great. I have tan interior and it's a tough to keep clean. I can send some pictures if you like at secondharleybellsouth.net

Thanks for the tips. NC law is "must allow more than 35% of light in" So (stupid question) does that mean that is the lowest I can go? I have not tinted windows on a car before this one. I have a white with tan interior.
My former Ford Explorer's windows were tinted by Ford, except for the front and I miss it.
If anyone has any pictures, please post here. Thanks.

The only stupid question is the one not asked.
If it must allow 35% light in, then, by law...you have to go with the 35% tint. It's funny because factory tint, like the tint that came on your explorer is 20% and in most cases...you can match the front windows and have no legal issues.
Now...if you have a dark interior, 35% tint will look darker than it really is. So...if you have a light interior, you could get away with 20% tint which is a bit darker than 35%, but the lightness of the interior makes it seem not as dark. Usually, this is one way to get by and not have any legal issues while driving.
In the end, go with what you feel most comfortable with. If you go with 35%, if the police pull you over...they can't tell you to take it off because you are within the legal limit. If you have 20% tint on and the cop is in a bad mood and decides to check it (just because) then he can make you remove it and give you a citation for it. Just something to think about.

Thanks for the advice. I want to be ignored by the police for a while. Just got a speeding ticket last Sunday. First one in 15 years. This Azera can fly when you aren't paying attention.

No problem. 35% tint actually looks nice, you can check my page as I've got pics posted of my car and you can see the tint. You are so right about the Azera having the ability to get away from you if you're not paying attention, that's why I love setting the cruise control on long highway hauls!
#797 of 810 Installing Mud Guards
Nov 03, 2009 (6:04 am)
I would like to save the costs of having mud guards installed by the dealer. I have found the best price on the mud guards, but do see the problem of getting a screwdriver to the screws to install them myself.
Has anyone installed them without taking the tire off? If so, how?

You can use an offset screw driver..... this will help
I ended up taking the tire off ... the whole job took about 45 min.front and back

For front tires, just turn the steering wheel left or right & screw the mudguards. Very Easy. For the rear tires, you'd need an offset screw driver.
I'd suggest buying a $4 at Home Depot offset screwdriver rather than taking the rear tires off. Much less trouble & quicker too!

I used a small ratchet with a screw driver head and it worked fine.
