I did 3M 30% on all windows except front windshield. Very happy with the shade, and cuts down on heat a fair amount.

I went 35% all around, 3M. New York Law is that number and they actually do check with a guage at stops. It is a bit lighter than I would like but looks sharp and definitely takes the edge off....

Have jet black with platinum and black individual interior. Seats are a bit tough to keep clean but the black dash and carpet make it a bit easier.

Considering where you live and the colder temps, I would do the new Michelin Piolt AS3's. Great performance, quiet, and will perform well in colder temps, rain, and some snow.
