30%. Especially if you have the curtains. Mine had 35% and curtains and was just fine. The rear window seams a bit light but the rear curtain helps.

Here is a pic of my ride before I put on the Alpina front spoiler. If you don't have one, you need to find one. It really transforms the lower lines and fills that void of the oem bumper.
