Just picked up a euro front plate and decided to take a couple pics. Also got the windows tinted. Check it out and let me know what you think.

Looks like a euro-minivan. No, just kidding. I like wagons.
Looks cool in B/W against the warehouse! Where is that?

I went with 20% all the way around. Looks a little lighter up front due to the sunroof being open.

It was at the Shaker Historical site just a few minutes from the Albany Int Airport.

When you say 20%, do you mean that you have 80% light coming through, or your down to 20% light coming through

Wow! no wonder it looks great, if I had that done here in the U.K, they would impound the car and a hefty fine, some over here get away with 50% in the fronts, in the back we are allowed 100% if we wish,but the legal limit for the front 2 is 70% light must come through, which most cars from the factory already have that anyway, If we get caught with 50% they make you peel a strip off each side then give you a ticket to return to a police station within 14 days to show them you have removed the rest, if you dont appear car impounded and off you go to court and you may not ever get your car back.

Thanks for the comments guys. I really appreciate the input.

Next I'm hoping to get a full euro light package but it seems that they're hard to find. I talked to a couple people and they we're saying that the wagon rear lights are different then the sedan. Anybody know where I can get a euro light package? or smoked out package?

Wagon FTW!!!

lol in Germany you'll get your car impounded if you have any tint on the front

and yes, the Touring tails are different from the sedans.

couldn't find one quick but there are aftermarket tails for them in most European countries. btw this

would look nice

I don't know about those brands but they're pretty much the only ones I found

I'm liking the first choice but I can't read anything on that website. lol. Let alone even figure out how to order from it. Basically it's figuring out if Dectane is a good company though. Thanks for the research.
