iite thanks... I had 20 on my white car... But black cars make tint look darker so I might go with 30% legal here in GA.

Whats the easiest way to remove the altima and SV from the car. On my genesis I used dental floss but took me like 45 mins to remove the H.

Couple easy ways to remove all the lettering. First you can use a heat gun and warm the letters up which will soften the adhesive then you can remove the residue with goof off. Or use fishing line, same concept as the dental floss but it won't keep breaking like the floss. Then you take the goof off to remove the rest of the adhesive.

Floss and Goo-gone. I didn't use a heat gun or any heating methods so it was difficult. I recommend doing it on a hot day. Use rubbing compound to remove any scratches that might occur.

Im getting my tint removed because it was scratch...and putting a new back again. Will it look the same or is it gonna look ugly? Is there gonna be any old tint left on windows? I never done this to my cars.

You should be able to get the old tint off. The glue from the tint may still be left on the window. From what I have read, you should be able to use goo-gone or something of that nature to loosen the glue. Then either wipe it off or use a razor to scrape it off. Then let it dry before applying new tint.

Speaking of which I need to redo one of the windows on my car.

In the hardcore detailing forums, people recommend it because you don't know what has been deposited on your car during the manufacturing process and what not.
