CTC guy spent exactly 15 minutes and was looking at it pretty thoroughly. Have to do something with the tint since can't get it passed for safety with anything on the front windows.
That's too bad, looks great with the tints.
On close inspection it appears that my car had tints and I suspect the owner had to remove them at lease return inspection.
Your pics are actually causing me to reconsider if I want to add tints or not.
can't decide.

Cool Thanks. My car has "virgin" windows and I'm planning on having it tinted. My buddy wants me to do 15% all around but I only want to do it once. I was thinking maybe 20% but I'm still undecided. The sun beats on us pretty good down here in Texas tho. I did 35%-sides 15% rear on my last car and it wasn't dark enough for my tastes on the sides.

Thanks again. Your white would look awesome with them.

I may go back to the 38% I had on the G coupe. I had no popo or inspection

issues with that.

You're welcome.

Around here tint is pretty well an appearance mod and it's not common at all. There wouldn't be more than 1 car of every couple hundred that has any tint and that's only light and very rarely(illegal) on the front windows. Sun/heat just isn't enough of an issue.

The tint on this thing stands out like a sore thumb around here.

A few pics on a recent road trip on the Cape Breton Cabot Trail here in Nova Scotia- our answer to Pacific Coast Highway. I was there participating in a 290 km running relay race.

IR at the track

Got to dial in my recently installed TCK DA coil over suspension at a Porsche Club DE at Pacific Raceways. With 3.5 degrees negative front camber and fresh Toyo R888 tires the car exhibited no understeer in the hard turns.

Thanks Ian. I didn't have as much chance for picture taking as I'd like but managed to squeak out a few.

Yes the car was truly a blast to drive on that road. 290 kms of lots of curves, mountains and beautiful scenery.

It's not tourist season yet either so not many cars on the road.

I used to live around there and have taken pics of every car I've owned in the last 15 yrs at that same spot. Nice views from that overlook, eh?

How long have you owned your car?

Almost two years for me and I still love it the same way you do.

Oooo I see. Yea, it's definitely great. Had a photoshoot with my friends there with the sunset, looks divine. I really want to buy a digital SLR, but then that would mean taking money out of my car funds LOL

^^^ Tanx! I shot that on the way to Banff (headin' S on the Icefields Parkway).

And for the record... I've had my Emma for over 4 years now and not once has the "honeymoon phase" waned on me. SERIOUSLY.

So have fun and enjoy the best livable sports car in the world.
