My windows are 20% all the way around. I was considering 35% too, but it doesn't look very dark. The police might not like it as much though

i also went 20% tint.. so much better than the 35%. ive had two different cars with 20% tint and of the many times in my youth days when i got pulled over,i never got a ticket for my tent.also just an fyi if you do the 35% tint and dont like it and want to go darker it will cost you more to re tint windows that are already tinted...

No reason you should have to abide by the same laws as the rest of us.

Like VisiX said, it's good to know that police are exempt from the laws that govern the rest of us, I hope karma comes around and gets him

Ive been pulled over on rt 95 for doing 109 in a 55 by a state trooper, got pulled over because the cop thought my inspection sticker was expired but never for window tint. It went through state inspection with the tint also.

ok im pretty set on 35% i think all the way around. i had it on my last car for 7 years and its a good "in-between" i think. Plus having the black interior it will look darker i suppose. Ill post pics when its done in a couple weeks. thanks to everyone for their pics and suggestions
