Window Tinting Advice / Show Off Your Tint! :P

trying to decide how dark i should go.. i was thinking 10% in the rear windows, 20% for the driver and passenger, and 30% for the front windshield.

or something like 20 or 25% all around, my main concern is not getting pulled over by police 24/7.. the car already stands out.. i dont wanna go too dark and attract to much heat.

if you guys can post percentages with a pic that would work nice. also if you've gotten pulled over cuz your tint.

I've got 5% all the way around, and a 9" strip across the windshield. Very illegal but looks badass. Check out my showoff thread for pics

this looks just about right, 10backs, 30sides, did you do the front windshield at all?

It took at least a month to get used to it, now I couldnt go back. It is a bit hard to see out ofat night, but it also stops the blinding HID's from the big trucks around here when they tailgate you

fronts are here

lol ya i hate it when ******s with bright lights tailgate.. i think im gonna go with 10% in the back juss to be safe.. n prob 30-25 for the front side windows. i have the black cloth interior so it should be enough

is it worth tinting the front windshield? is it illegal?
