Window Tinting

Hey guys im getting my windows tinted on wednesday and i still cant decide how dark to go. Ive decided to go at least 20% all around but now i want to go 5%. Does anyone have 5% all around and not like it? I do a decent amount of night driving so i want to know how bad it is. Thanks

my new whip:

I dont understand why people get 5%. It looks bad, and it's a pain in the *** to see out of.

The whole idea of being a professional troll is not feeding other trolls. If you want me to rage out and deny it, sorry. Raging out would only confirm the accusation.

You should get 99% tint, that way it can occupy your windows.

Basically what the majority of everyone else said. It will be too dark. I have Limo on the back and 20% on the front. I can see out of the sides sometimes if I'm in a lighted area. I have to roll my windows down when backing up. A backup camera/parking sensors also helps which is why I went with the limo on the back.

5% on my rear and 15% up front. Isn't too hard to see out of and doesn't look like *** either.

I know a guy with 5% tint all the way around including the front window. He has no problems seeing when driving, even at night. And from the inside you can barely tell all the windows are tinted.

The only reason one should get 5% is if you have an SUV with subwoofers in the back. That was my reasoning for it at least.

If you get the front windows 5% you're just asking to get pulled over also.

What the hell kind of privacy do you need while driving? Are you that embarrassed when you pick your nose in traffic?

i do 20% all the way around. 5% on the back windows. gives the car a darker look and still makes the front windows and rear windshield easy to see out of.
