Cool Hello, Gyrlwolf Here

Hello everyone. I'm new to the group and am expecting to receive my NX F-Sport, Eminent White Pearl w/Rioja Red interior sometime between the 20th-25th of March. I'm anxiously awaiting it's arrival. And also can't wait to tint the windows on my new baby to make the white pop even more! Thanks again for having me!

Welcome to the boards.

How dark of a tint are you going with if you already decided?

Just a week away for you. The tinted windows should look great. I look forward to seeing some pictures once it is done.

Welcome to the forum. Cheers!

@Kennedy -Sorry for the delay in reply. I'm in NJ and it's 7:47 p.m. here. I'm a nurse and am just getting home. Thanks for the warm welcome. In regards to the tint, here in NJ you're not allowed to have the front windows tinted, just the back 2 and the windshield. Unless, like me you have a medical exemption form for vehicle sunscreening like I do. (I have SEVERE migraines and use a skin cream that makes my facial skin really sensitive to the sun. So to keep me from having migraines triggered by too bright sun or bright snow in the winter, I was approved. Even with that the state wants you to put only 60% tint on the front windows and 70% on the front windshield. But most cops don't care what % you have if you have the medical exemption form. But if you don't have that form it's a $250 fine here. I'm going to get 70% on the front windshield and 20% on all the other windows. I considered going as low as 15% but I'm not sure. When I lived in Mississippi, there were no tint laws and I had 5%. While it looked cool, it was a nightmare at night. And I normally had to roll the front 2 windows down at night to back out of parking spaces. I'm getting really excited as each day is closer to my NX's arrival. I'll definitely post pics upon arrival of it and after the tint job too. @mojo & @mister ; Thanks for the warm welcome!

I just got my F Sport and it's White with the Rioja Red interior too. Color combo is really nice. My sales manager said he was contacted by 19 dealers that asked to buy or trade for my NX. I don't believe there's many available F Sports in our area.

I just saw the comment you made on my post...

You're going to love your NX. All that waiting will be worth it!

Delivery update. Ugh! My NX was due into the port on 3-20-15, but my dealer just called now and said it looks more like it won't be in until 3-24-15 so now I probably won't get it until the 30th or 31st. I WANT MY NX! LOL! Oh well, guess my birthday present to myself (which is 3/25) will have to be a little late.

My sales manager told me once the NX's reach the port they stay in US Customs for a few days. You meantioned that you work in NJ. My windows sticker shows the port/plant as Newark, NJ. So if you live in or around NJ then it shouldn't be long after it gets to the port to arrive at your dealership.
