Tinting windows in VA.

I am about to have my driver and passenger side windows tinted, legal limit here is 50%, and I will also have the rear windshield tinted, limit is 35% for that.

What would be good tint %'s since I do a good amount of night driving, but still want it to be somewhat dark.

Pictures of the tint. The sun is reflecting off the back, so it looks lighter than it is... Click image for larger version

Thanks man, I decided to play it safe with the 50/35 tint, instead of 35 all around. The 50 looks darker than I expected.

I'm getting mine done 35 all the way around. I had it on an eclipse before and never got bothered. I have another spread going about doing some stuff this week- just got wife's altima done today with 35 all the way around.

Do you have a dark interior? If so, that's why the 50 looks a little darker. My friend has a Monte with a light tan interior and 50 and it doesn't look like his car is even tinted.

Where did you get yours done?

I got mine done at sunblock. I have a dark leather interior, so that's why 50 looks dark-ish.

Usually if you stay within the legal limit the place will give a lifetime warranty and if not they wont give one. Thats how it is where I go anyway
