window tint or these?

Which would you guys go for? I kind of like the louvres, but the tint on a black car looks really nice as well, and either way, I will tint the rear window and the passenger/ driver windows.

I would tint and then install the louvers

You may make it without friends; but with them, you can do anything.

Not a bad idea with other louvers, but these particular ones replace the glass.

HP numbers are good and all, but they're like asking someone how much they can bench. What difference does it make, if I can still kick your ass.

Louvers are nice...gives a throwback fastback look. Plus having to take time to prep the car for install sets it apart from others. Go for it.

Also a PITA to install. But they look better than the other louvers out there where you just stick them on.

I'm planning on tinting first then installing the louvers. You know, we are going to get our Cali's confused!! You are copying me, and I'm so honored. Or am I copying you? I spoke with a MCA judge and in 10 years when we can show our cars, it's estimated there will no longer be a class for "stock" cars anyway... So LET'S DO IT!

I've just tinted all windows with 11%- super dark-(It came this way from the dealer, Mr. State Trooper). Next I'm having the louvers installed. Can't decide if I want the Roush 5 slat or Auto FX 6 slat (more expensive but permanent). Both are open slats for visibility and I've tested both in real cars. I know the Roush is more common, which is why I like the Auto FX. Can't find online pic of the 6 slat to show you. Difference is $150 more, and it's permanently fixed, not 3M taped. What do you think?

Heh, I am most likely going with the Silver Horse racing ones. I hadn't heard about the auto fx ones though.

An opinion on the dark tint... at night, it's a little hard to see. I was advised of this problem, but wanted this dark color anyway. Side vision at night is sketchy at this point, so I may have to lighten the tint. FYI. And the auto fx slats look better with the 6 slats- can't find them online, just in the mag. Maybe I'll save the $200 and get the Roush 5 slat (like yours) and spend the $200 on the engine cover instead. Or maybe I should get new glasses? Aww, the Pony comes first, glasses can wait!
