    I got 5% on the rear window....and cant see shit out the back. Only plus is the headlights of other cars do not blind you. Have fun tring to parallel at night with the windows up.

    What would you recommend for tint? I'm looking at getting it done, and I'm not sure what % to go with...I want to be able to see out at night, but I still want the windows to be dark. I'm thinking about doing 15% all the way around, but I don't know what that will look like with the car.

    15% would be good and dark, but still safe to see.

    I don't think so, but it's not my DD so I'm not too worried.

    A lot better than I thought! Just gotta double check before you change lanes, it's not bad at all.

    I have 5% on the back window and 20% on the side windows on the T/A. It is fairly easy to drive at night.

    Now...the grand am is 5% all the way around. You find yourself leaning forward to make sure you miss medians.

    Oh that's not too bad according to what your's looks like, I have 5% on my car, but it's peeling off on the edges of the passenger mirror, and the rear window is bubbling and peeling as well... so I might be getting it done soon.

    I got 5% all the way around last summer, then my RH window got scratched, not long after that my LH door did the same..I discovered I had one bad window "Pad" on each side. Took the tint off, changed outs the broken pads but have not retinted, really dont miss it either.

    PS-Although it looks way kool, it sucked at night, IMHO.

    Im going 35% on the sides an 20% on the back this summer, thats as dark as most places around here will go cause of the tint laws. cant wait for the totally blacked out look.

    I went 5 on sides and back, and i think they added a 15 on the tops to match it all up, illegal but then what legal stuff is fun, as far as visibility backing up at night got interesting

    I didn't wanna have to deal with it on the back, I think it's a 35% or so back there. I really wanna do the t-tops, how does it look?
