Is this 20% Tint or 35%?

Do you have any experience driving with tinted windows? 15% can be a pain in the ass at night.


Honestly I never realized it until I put tints on my own car.


I like it dark so maybe I’ll have to learn to deal with it.

for the rear I think I might go 15% or 20%


Has anyone done 70% on the windshield in California? Any trouble with the law?

I have 80% done on my windshield and no one has bothered me for the past 6 months of ownership. 70% should be good, probably no lower than that.

FML, I got 15% front and 5% back and during Daytime the front is still basically clear because of the white interior and glass roof.


Now I wished I got 5% all around, just FYI for any other new owners that want darker tints.


But no way that my previous tints was 5% higher than my current tints.

5% is the way to go if someone is looking for good darkness. Your front is clear as I assume your windshield isn't tinted.

Yeah, I live in LA/California so I definitely can't go 20% on the windshield as much as I'd love to. I'm planning to get 60% or 70% on the windshield.



here are the new pictures lol. Just don't like how you can clearly see through even with 15%
