That'* if you're just going for looks. The real reason you want to tint your car is too cool down and protect your interior. 90% will do that, because it'* the film itself that blocks the UV rays, the darkness has nothing to do with it.

XROB i think youd be happiest with 20 on the back doors,15 on the back window and 30/35 on the front doors

thats just my two cents tho

Looks great if not just a little familiar. I have the same tint on my white GXP.

You can't tell the difference between 15 and 20 honestly, not from the outside anyway.

Also, not matching the front doors to rears is ugly IMO.

I'll break the law to look good, or I won't tint the rear so much to not break the law. But I WILL NOT have mismatched windows.

Missouri law the front is 35%, so I broke the law. 35% isn't dark enough for me.
Florida is 25%, I would have been happy with that. Cops don't care about 15% so I went with that.
