Lol. You're not going to "draw attention" with just your window tint. I've had 35% and 20% on my cars and not once have I even been asked about it during stops.

30% on the TL which is black on black and it looks superb. I won't even be able to notice anything that's 50% or above let alone 70
Agreed. 35% on a black interior car looks perfect.
50% doesn't even look like it's there.
70% would be a complete waste IMO. OP, you do know that the higher the %, the less dark it is? Just making sure as it's a very common misconception.

Terry, you definitely have 35 or MAYBE 50%. There is no way that your windows are anything lighter than that.
