Got plates today and paid the taxes ouch!(looks like bologna, mac and cheese for awhile) But more importantly I'm getting tinting tomorrow, then heading out of town. Hopefully I will be able to post pics first though.

How much were the taxes? And how long is going to take to get your windows tinted? I want to get that done soon too...

Yep, state and county taxes. I didn't have a trade in so I paid taxes on the purchase price.
yeah, with me wanting to sell my AV before taking delivery of the Charger, I will be paying 8.1% on the purchase price... plus whatever registration comes to...

Benifit is I just renewed tabs on the AV, so I will get back a pro-rated amount on the $440, towards the registration of the Charger...

Here in CO, we are charged sales tax based on county. Mine is 7.59%. for a 35000 price, that is just over $2600. This does not include the hit I am going to take to get it plated. Most likely about $400 or $500 in "ownership" tax to license with DMV. CO gets you coming and going. :cry:

Taxes were over $2,000 and tinting should only take about 2 hours and cost $200.

For the window tint, are you geting a film tint or are you getting the glass smoked. I want to tint as well, but am afraid of getting aftermarket film tint done and having it lift and bubble after some time.

I get it now. I was just talking about the "ownership" tax. I had a trade-in, so I don't know about the sales tax...

Got the windows tinted (aftermarket film) on my SXT 2 weeks ago. I have had 4-5 vehicles tinted in that manner and never had an issue with bubbling or peel. The trick is that you cannot use any kind of cleansing solution that has harsh abrasives or ammonia. I just clean them with a cloth towel dampened only with water.

Not only does it cut down on interior heat in the Florida sun, grey smoke tint just makes the bright silver look even more BADASS :cool:

I've been looking into tinting for the past couple days, and I don't see another alternative to film tinting. What exactly is "getting the glass smoked"? Can any explain the alternatives, price, method, etc?

It is a chemical process that actual discolors the glass and gives it a smoked appearance. I have heard that it costs more, but there are no chances of bubbling or pealing.

I had to pay 8.75% for the taxes in this great city of Chicago :mad: . But the fact that I will be one of the first to have the Daytona in GoManGo (ordered on the 7th of June :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: ) I am not complaining what so ever. Plates cost me $63 to transfer and supposedly in 2-1/2 more weeks I will be strapping that orange monster under my rear for some real fun. :) :)

Question, you ordered yours only 7 days before I did mine. How is it that you know it will be there in 2 1/2 weeks? You have some way of tracking the VON#. Did you get a VIN# yet? Thanks for any inside help you might pass on.

I work midnights so I was sleeping when the dealer called, but supposedly they have my VIN# and I was talking to the owner of the dealership I went through and was talking to him about ship dates etc. He said he will be getting it within 4-6 weeks, then he added that he knew for a fact that it would take 3. So I am takin his word for it. He has owned the place for 25 years so, I figured if anyone knew he would.

im currently located just outside of chicago

my local police are insane about tints
i would love to do it, but have gotten tickets for it in the past

some of my friends were even told to rip it off in front of the cop or else get a ticket for some crazy excessive amount

not sure if the tints is worth the chance of police annoyance :(

Sorry to hear that brooks. However, each state sets their own tinting laws. Here in Colorado it comes down to two options (per the tinting installers I have spoken to recently). You can go as dark as you want with the rear side windows as long as you leave the front side windows stock. :sick:

Otherwise you cannot go lower than 27% VLT filtering for all sides and rear.

(Lets see if I get this right)... This means I cannot tint the windows any darker than to filter out 73% of the visible light.

(How did I do folks? 73% would seem to be fairly dark to me, I was thinking in the 55-60% range myself)

As for the front WS, only the top 4" can be tinted to the same level (this one... I'd go as dark as you can legally get it).
