    Just got mine tinted a few days ago. Here's the before (stock) and after (50% front two, 35% rears):

    Before:

    I was worried that there was going to be a very noticable contrast between the 50% and 35%, but I wanted/had to do it this way by Virginia law. IMO, the contrast is almost non-existent and I'm very happy with the look of it as well as the tint's performance in all lighting conditions.

    Wow, that looks so much darker than 50 and 35%, must be the color of the car and the angle of the pic. Looks great

    I got 50% front & 35% rears as well, and really they look the same. I see that yours looks similar. Do you think the front/back look similar (from the inside, and out)?

    Nah, it's the lighting.

    If you look at the angle, I lowered the camera to be in-line with the center portion of the windows. I did this to maximize the amount of see-through because I wanted to give people an accurate representation of what this level of tint will look like in person. Too often people will take tint pictures looking down into the windows. This, paired with our black seats as the backdrop, gives the illusion that the tint actually looks darker than it really is.

    The post-tint picture was taken with more sunlight behind it if you look the sky comparisons (pre-tint pic was taken at 7am and the post-tint pic was taken at 4pm). The area behind where I'm standing in the post-tint picture is thickly wooded which is why the ground and lower region of the car's body look darker.

    Just got 20% tint all around. I think it is the perfect amount of tint, it is not too dark for me and people can still barely see in and make out who is in the car. It looks great and it definitely helps keep the car much cooler... now I have more privacy and dont feel naked driving around anymore





    I really need to get a nice camera... the iphone and its apps are getting annoying but the original pictures suck

    I would assume so, since it's the only window left!
