    I have the darkest tint (thanks to my son) On the rear window & rear quarter windows. You cannot see anything through them from the outside & barely see out through them from the inside! I put the light legal tint on the driver & passenger windows & that looks excellent IMO! It actually looks dark on the White car, so much contrast I suppose. I plan on removing the rear "limo tint" one day & either matching the legal tint or going one step darker which is perfect IMO. I'll try & find some pics later, gotta get to church!

    I use 2.5% limo tint on the rear and use 15% up front, still dark and makes a huge difference in the sun.

    I'm not sure what your tint laws are but keep in mind that the same tint is gonna look darker on a white car than a blue car. The guy I go to for tattoos had 5% all around on a black 300C for 5yrs without problem. He sold it for a white Lexus IS and put 5% on it just the same. He got pulled over on the way home from the tint shop and the cop made him pull it off on the side of the road. He didn't give him a ticket because he did it.

    Idk but you can't see anything backing up at night. Even when I had 35 percent on unlit streets I had to roll the windows down. Same for 20, and now limo.
