Default What is your window tint level?

Levels: 5% -- 15% -- 20% -- 30% -- 35% -- 50%

I've always had 20% but somehow I would like to try 15%.
What do you guys have?
Pics would be appreciated.

25% driver/passenger doors, 5% on back row and rear windshield. Keeps the car very cool with the window shades up.

I have a starfire pear in California. Thinking to do 35% on 4 doors and 50% on rear with shade. Would love to see pics also. For those that like to keep it legal, California can only do 70% on the front doors.

35% all around. To me it's the classiest shade, and the black interiors greatly help out the overall darkness.

I'm contemplating a 50% or even higher front windshield layer to really smooth out shade across the glass surfaces.

25% on sides and back window, 70% windshield all ceramic. 35% is the legal limit here in GA but with my light interior it's like not having tint, when the power door shades and rear shade up limoed out.

15% on the back three, 35% on the driver/passenger front and 50% on the windshield. LS460 shades are extremely effective, especially compared to my LS430, so less tint is need on the back which is better for night driving and backing up.

ls430 had 15% all over with 50% on the windshield. . .

I have 30% all the way around except the front. Black interior. Dark enough for me and keeps the cops off me.

Even 25% in the front windows look very dark.
Is it because of the black interior?
