That low and you won't be able to drive at night and during the day you would almost have trouble seeing the sun. GP Pimp over on ClubGP used to live near me and since he'* albino he has papers from his doctor to have his windows legally tinted to 5% ... He doesn't like to drive at night with his windows closed because he can hardly even see out the windshield which he has tinted to like 15% and the vision out the sides and rear is almost non-existant.

I don't have a Bonneville, but its still a Pontiac/GM.. my '94 Prix registered at 74% stock when I raised a stink about the last time I was pulled over for tint. (after the dickwad ripped my tint off on the side of the road.)
I had 35% applied over that. And I put it right back on after that. Bastages.

i have installed 5% on a few of my friends trucks, you can easily see out, but cant see in for nothing...must have to do with the quality of the tint? i just used walmart stuff
