The best is 30% all around,if you whant your car to look nice

5% all around if you like that racing filing or you like your car to get a little more police and ladies attention, if you know what i mean.

I have 30% and i like it, but i did however had 5% on my 330 and liked that too, got me out of speeding ticket ones.

I have 20% all the way around. When cops are around or i get pulled over I just roll all the windows down or open the sunroof to let in more light.

Hey Loveless, just search around for some pictures, some do 30 on the sides and 20 on the rear, but it really boils down to what you think is dark enough so you can see out as well, especially when driving at night......I didn't mean to say "search" it up. I would be more then willing to post some pics to give you an idea.

Umm, who tints there windshield? Big no no here in Cali.......

35% It's the maximum legal tint over here, I really like it. You will notice a significant improvement in the temperature of your car when parked in the sun as well!



(Euro clear headlights are on order :thumbup: )

35% all around..using formula one ceramic tint....

in cali tinting the front windows is illegal...BUT with 35% most cops won't hassle you....and i could go darker in back but i don't like that uneven look....

besides i was going more for protection from the sun than looks...

with the rear sunshades up you can't see in during the day!

18% all the way around. Not too dark at all. In fact, not dark enough during the day, but plenty dark at night.

20% all round cept windshield

beige interior makes it lighter plus sunroof opened makes it easier to hide from the cops :p

No tint yet, but I`m considering on getting 5% on my rear windows, and 15% in the front (Totally ILLEGAL is CA, but summer is coming, and I hate getting beat down by the heat.)

mine is dark as hell..over 50
Say what? Correct me if I`m wrong, but the darkest tint you can get is 5%...
