35% tint???

Hey guys I got an appointment to get my Stang tinted tomorrow. The legal limit here in Kansas is 35% and I got quoted 180$ for side windows, quarter windows, and the back. There is a lifetime warranty with the 35% tint but if I do go darker there is no warranty and its more expensive. You guys think 35% would look decent and get rid of the fishbowl look? Here's a pick of it now, tintless.

How much more expensive? Are they tinting it on the outside, inside, or both? I got 20% all around with 50% on the whole front windshield.

35% works fine. The warranty is a plus, retinting a car is no fun. Got to redo the Focus after 3 years.

I'm not sure how much more expensive it is. I don't think he likes to go past the legal limit it seemed but he would if it is preferred

32% is the legal limit here in GA. I had 35% installed, since the factory glass has an almost unnoticeable built in tint. It reads 30% on a tint meter which falls in the legal tolerance. I was afraid it would be too light, but I'm very happy with it. I paid $210 for all windows and a 5" strip on the front. Its Llumar film w/ a lifetime warranty.

Here in CO the legal limit is 27%. I decided to take the risk.. And got 15% on the quarters/rear and 30% on the sides. I like how it turned out but might eventually get the front two tinted darker.
