Default About tints?

Hey every1, just wondering how does the % goes? the higher the % = the lighter tints or darker?

and don't Cops pull you over for tinting all around?

The greater the number the lighter the tint, the lower the number, the darker.

you are brave.. absolutely love the 5%... I don't know how well that would flow out here in Cali.. anyone know the cali law on tint? I think I'm gonna go with 15-20% all around.. I'm getting it done this week.. any recomendations on tint places for the IE/san gabriel area?

i'm thinking of tinting it this weekend at California Tint in Rosemead. It's about 30-45 mins from the IE, but i just live like 5-10 mins away... they're known for tinting and do a good job overall.. with the tint law heavy in CA, i plan on going 35% all around...
