Tinting the window on your Model 3

At night with the dimming side mirrors, can you make out other cars? On an un-tinted window I feel the dim is pretty aggressive already, I'm concerned I wouldn't be able to see much (although the AP cameras can, I guess).
I got 30% Solar Guard Vortex all around. I personally feel the auto tinting side mirrors and rear mirror make it a bit too dark. It's be hard to see a pedestrian in the rear/side mirrors. I usually take an extra second to look when I'm turning. I can make out cars with a tiny bit of effort but if their lights are not on it's not easy. Really wishing there's an update so you can adjust the auto-dim.

Hey bro, I just got my Tesla M3 and scheduled an appointment next Sat for tinting. I was thinking 35% all around as well including top. Question, did you tint your back and top window 35% as well? If you did how much darker did it get? Curious to see what did you do for those and how you feel about it?

I had the whole back window tinted with one sheet. I didn't touch the top. The back window looks great, it gets darker as the gradient increases but still easy to see through during the day.
