Default Tint recommendations for Red SC400

Updated Pictures with 20% tint!

Could someone recommend what tint percentage looks good on a Red SC400. Not sure if I should go dark with 15% or with something like 30%. I know it is all personal preference, I am just wondering if I should go that dark.

If anyone has there cars tinted with light or dark tint, feel free to post pics with the percentage. I appreciate it.

Updated pictures of the car with 20% tint on the back and sides:

I have 5% on the rear and back windows, and 20% on the two front door Windows.

Tint on a red SC is basically a necessity! I think tint on every SC is a good modification for both looks and a cooler cabin, but it really looks great on red SC's.

Thanks to IL laws, I'm technically limited to 35% on the back and 50% on the front. Should look slick once it's applied.

As dark as is legal in the rear windows, and 25% on the fronts.

Negative... Rather have clear, clean glass windows with a clear view of my interior wrapped in nice, new fresh leather.

Until those unprotected leathers are dried out and cracked from being beaten on by the sun and the cabin getting well over 100 degrees in just a couple of years or less.. No thanks..

Have you consider getting 60 or 70% ceramic tint for your car? it isn't noticeable and it lowers the cabin temperature dramatically to protect the leather. It's pricey, but well worth the money if you plan on keeping the car.
