    ask and ye shall receive. i was also worried about differernt tint on the frnt and rear windows, but it really doesnt bother me now that its on the car. the difference is very minimal, and it really helps to be able to see, especially at night.

    ^Thanks a million! This is a huge help.

    So the rear sides and rear window are 5%, and the fronts are 35%?

    Any issues with the rears at 5% as far as blind spots at night or parrallel parking at night?

    no worries

    the rears are 5, frnts are 35

    the rears are really dark. i dont ever really have to parallel park, i guess that is the nice thing about living in the suburbs and having a garage.

    PULL THE TRIGGER. you wont regret it.

    Well I decided to just go for it...went ahead and debadged most of the rear as well.

    Rear window is 5%, everything else is 20%...Looks amazing and I'm really glad I went limo on the rear. It's not as dark as I had expected it would be.

    That is one good looking car with the windows tinted. After seeing all these pics of the SWP I should have looked at one in person before buying mine, just never cared for white on any vehicle in the past but the wrx looks awesome. I personally like the same % on all windows but that's just me.

    Thanks! The SWP is really a great color.

    I was debating between all 20 or doing the rear window darker and just eventually had to make a decision. You really can't tell the rear window is darker when you're looking at the car, but I agree 20% all around would have looked awesome too.
