Would you guys do 35 all around or 20 all around? I know legal is 35, does anyone get caught on that?

thx

35 looks better, and its easier to see at night. Last thin you want is more hassle from the po-po

Oh it looks like you have the sunroof open! that lightens the interior more! lol but that looks good. Do you get sunburns through that still? after a few hours?

My boy likes playing psp on trips and the sun glares out his screen.

I could go 35 front 20 back sides and 5 rear.... or 35 fronts and 20 back sides, and rear...

GOD the choices!!! lol

My optinion, 20% all around, maybe 15% on the back.

I wouldn't do a split (different front/rear windows), I find it always looks odd. Don't worry about the darkness of the 20%, it's really not as bad as it seems (especially not from inside the car).

My e34 was tinted 20% and I drove it for 2 years like that. Didn't hear a single word from a cop as long as I had it, and it never gave me any trouble at night.... in fact, it helped! The rear windshield cuts down on the lights from cars behind you.

Here are some pics of mine before I sold it, gives you an idea of what 20 looks like....

yeah i'd suggest not splitting it either, if ur gunna to, do privacy on the rear great for night time driving, but also looking out ur back will be a pain in the ass.

legal tint goes 35% front, 25% rear n back window is privacy. thats the legal.
25% all around and you'll be fine, even 20% you will be depending if u drive by a cranky cop or not and whats to be an asshole.

i'm getting mine redone to 25% wen i get the money,lol. there at 35% right now, way i bought it.

I forgot if i have 25 or 20, but definitely keep it uniform. Dont do front one % and rear the other.

Also it depends on the colour of your car and the interior colour. if you have a light interior you can get away with 20. My car 's pure black on black , no problems with the police although every now and then at night time ill open my window if i see a cop or even turn the interior lights on.

I'm going for 20 all around. It should be a drastic change from 100 all around... lol Plus I'll have the uniform look.

I'm having a place in st. kitts do it, guaranteed while I own the car against lift, bubble or fade. 230$ HQ film.

I've done it before myself in the past, it's one of the only things that makes me into a different (evil) person, I hate it, and I don't wanna subject my girlfriend to that. lol

These people seem very professional, I just know they are going to do an awesome job.
