I'm thinking about 15% all around but i'm not sure what kind. They had a Ray-ban metallic tint that the guy reccomended, but whenever i think of metallic, i think of that mirror tint (which would look ghastly on a black SC). Then they had plain black, but i don't want it to look like someone took a crayon and covered my windows. The shop i went to didn't have any pictures of cars with tint so i told the guy that i'll get back to him. What would you all reccomend as a good tint for a black SC?

Default tinting

i personally think black tint looks best with a black car. my SC300 is black and i had it tinted 10% all around and it looks really nice as it goes with the paint color. there is a pic of it in the gallyer under PIC00013.jpg. the only problem with having 10% is at night time it is really hard to see through the rear window...especially when it is pitch black outside you can almost see nothing at all when backing up! so i would recommend 30% tint....its not too dark and not too light almost perfect. if i could go back i would get 30%.
