Default Window Tint

Lets see your cars with 35% tint please, I will be doing this but would like to see some pictures to get an idea how dark it will be. My car is Kona Blue.

It'll be pretty dark. Texas used to be 35% (but they went to 25% in 2009), and my crown vic was done at 35%. It wasn't so dark that you couldn't see in, but it was decent. I don't have any pics of my Vic with the tint, unfortunately.

I had 20% on my 2010 GT but opted to go with 45% (legal) ceramic tint on my 2012 GT. While it definitely lets more light in, it cuts down on the heat considerably more than standard tint. I can also see when I back up now!

Honestly I cant remember how dark I went with the tint but I tried to stay legal for VA when I was there and I think this is 50% up front and 20% in the back. Go darker, I wish I had, but I was tired of getting fix it tickets.

Yeah, Virginia sucks for tint laws. I've gotten nailed twice in the past.

15% front and back - darker than what you are looking for but I figured it was a good excuse to post a pic of my car It all depends on the angle of the sun and the angle you are looking at it on how dark it looks.
