Window Tint Opinions

Gonna get my windows tinted tomorrow but don't know what I should get. I've got a silver 325Ci. Legal is 30% in Indiana, but that doesn't bother me. I'm either going to do:
A. 20% all the way around (Except front)
B. 5% on four side windows and 20% on back (Was suggested by someone for backup visibility)
C. 5% all the way around (Except front)

Any opinions are appreciated!!! Not worried about the legal issue. The shop told me on my side of town they don't hassle you too much about it.

Thanks!!!

I'd go with what you like best. Sit in a car with 20 and with 5

I'd go for 20 but that's me

5% all around and I'll wager you're headed for an accident real soon.

35% is legal here, I'm considering getting 35 all around. Have you gotten any quotes yet? If so, what'd they say it'd run you?

I ended up doing 20% all the way around. I'm happy with it
