I really don't like my tint, its too light and frankly looks like garbage to me.. So when I get around to it, I plan on getting it re done 20% all around. Black vinyl above the dot matrix on the rear windshield. Day time / night time pics anybody?

My car is blue but eff the 20% go for the 5%. That's all I put on my cars. And put out the extra for the good 3m professional stuff. The bottom of the line doesn't have the crisp deep black. Tint is definitely a "you get what you pay for" deal

How often do you roll your windows down to back up at night? lol. 20 is as dark as I'd go. Any darker and its just asking for the ticket over here. I found a place that a bunch of friends used, and the guy is the best on the island. Same day roll down, no bubbles, no color changing tint etc..

Never need to put them down to back up at night , I got skills honey.
Yeah I get pulled over quite often lol. When the cops say something about the dark tint I always respond with "yea but it looks good doesn't it". So far I have had 1 tint ticket in 10+years

That and it's just unsafe at night. I had 2.5% on the 97 I had for a few months and it was way too dark.

I don't care who you are. If you say you can still see out of 5% as good as you can 35% you must have superman vision. Just own up and admit you can't see as good out of it. There is no shame in admitting it.

I just got 20% factory matched on my front windows of my truck and love it. It's decently dark at night and I can't imagine going much darker than that. Driving home at 3am from the bar job it's pretty dark, I couldn't imagine 5%.

35% all the way around and love it

Agreed 35% is perfect for a dark or black car

yeah 5% or darker is just asinine


Is that 20% in both pics? I wanna go 20 but it might be to dark for a vert? Or i just go 35% on the safe side?

i think 35% is a good look.

Yes. I use to have 35% on the front windows but I didn't like it.

Next time around I'll probably go limo tint everywhere. Currently I just have that on the rear.
