Really? I would've thought that it would be a little more difficult to see out of. I thought about doing it but that's really easy to spot and I was afraid of getting tickets from it. Looks good though!

better make sure it's legal in ur state. I don't think it is legal anywhere without a doctors recommendation but I could be wrong.

I went 5% on my new edge. No strip on the windshield cause the guy wasn't comfortable tinting over the pony on top of the windshield

I personally wouldn't go any darker than 15.. It's hard to see out of at night especially if there aren't any street lights in the area. But what do I know I've only worked at a tint shop for over 5 1/2 years lol. That's what I tell people that come in the shop and then I tell them we'll do whatever you want lol

Yes less darkness on the windshield is what I meant. I don't drive in the dark very much. Hell I don't drive much anyway. I'll do more deciding when I finally get it

I went with 20% on the sides and rear and plan to have the windshield done in 50%. I went with 3m tint and love it. Having other brands on other cars, I like the clarity that the 3m has when looking out.
