Window tint

So I'm getting my windows tinted this week. I have a black mustang with black leather interior. I am thinking 35% on the side windows and 20% on the back. I don't want to go too dark so this combination seemed appropriate. Pictures would be great of whatever you have! Thanks

Re: Window tint

I have 20% all the way around.... looks good, but hard to see at night when your backing out of the driveway... I'd go with 30% all around man... just my opinion

30% would be nice but it might be too dark because I have a darker interior. Just trying to not start problems with the police.

I used to have 20% all the way around.. Way too dark. 35% on the two front windows and 20% on both quarter rear windows and rear window is perfect

Thats what I'm thinking. But would the 20% on the quarter rear windows look off with the 35% on the front widows?

If you look close in this picture of mine you can tell the difference in the front windshield of no tint and the top strip tinted. I have 5% all the way around. Honestly idk how I haven't been caught yet. It's great in Florida, helps keep the sun out and car cool. But at night it sucks, sometimes I can't even see my driveway or any driveway, to pull in I gotta put the windows down. But I think your combo would look good!

No, they're small and I have black leather too so it just looks like the seats make it darker. You have to really look hard to notice

Re: Window tint

Ive got 20 percent all the way around (see sig pic) since my suv had the same i got used to it. It is hard backing out at night. I also roll my window down at night when turning....when pedestrians wear black theyre very hard to see even with no tint!

I'm dropping it off tonight. The guy that's doing it asked me what I wanted and i just went with the 35 on the sides and 20 on the back. Just keeping it simple. Thanks for the advice though.

Can't wait to see it when it is done. I will post some pictures this weekend once I get it washed up nice.
