    Thats what I have.

    When I bought the car it had 5% all the way around it looked sweeet in the day but at night I couldn't see out the side rear views mirror really well.

    I had a Celica I brought here to TX from FL land of no inspections. I had 5 all around on that and 1/3 of the way down the winsheild. it was dark at night backing up but it looked good and kept the car cool. My Explorer was the same all 5 and 1/3 or so of the winsheild at night you could walk by my truck parked and not seeh anything in it but a steering wheel

    5% all around looks great IMO. friend of mine has a camaro with 5 all around and 1/3 of the windshield tinted. Cop stopped one time while we were parked and even complimented it. Not very strict in Southern Indiana haha. Im getting 5 around next tuesday. Theres 25 on there now (or thats what me and another guy came up with). Sucks and it was a crappy job and is scrathed up. But im sensitive to the sun. And backing up is nooooo problem with 5. I had 5 on my firebird and it was no problem at all.

    At night it was darrrrk...i wouldnt say it was dangerous. I ddnt seem to have any true problems. But i mean when a truck with LED headlights is right on ur bumper. 5% makes a great difference but as for bad weather driving. I think that wipers and headlights are the big differnce not the tint IMO. And yes these were DDs. But i was born and raised with cars that have dark tint. If you want a good look woth greater night capabilities...go 10% all around

    Agree. I had 20% on the sides and 5% on the back on my 1996 Camaro. It sucked backing up at night.

    20% is the limit in Indiana. I don't know if this is a state law, county, etc.
