The first thing is to check and see what percentage of tint you can legally have on your windows in your state. Check this out http://www.tintcenter.com/laws/

Then based off that, you'll know the maximum you can go. Some states, like Washington; they don't allow you to go any higher than 35% and you are limited to reflective tint on the upper 6" of the windshiled only.

Drive down to Coralville, Iowa and come to Auto Toyz! Tinting Tuesday, some tinting specialist comes only on Tuesday and does a damn good job. The price to get any kind of tinting done is $200.00, no lower, no higher.

Well I have 25% on all my windows. I got it done in the summer for about 220. The 25 looks really nice. It'* dark but not too dark if you know what i'm saying. It really makes it look sharp. 35 isn't dark enough in my opinion but... I got it done at a place called Auto Effects. I'm not sure if you have one around where you live but maybe check around to see.
