    Never seen anyone with 45% in the area. Usually 35% is pretty safe route to go, its a good balance of dark/light (you won't really have an issue seeing out at night and you still have a good balance of dark for the stealthy/private look). IMO, anything more than 35% is sorta a waste to spend the amount you have to spend for a good tint job.

    Haven't seen 45%, but I have seen 50% and as tommy_c said it's not worth doing unless the only goal is to reduce glare and maybe some heat reduction. If you are looking for a tinted look I think 35% is where you have to start. I'm getting tinted next Monday and am going with 30%, which seems like a nice level - looks great but avoids the vision issues that come at 20% and below.

    I've got 30% ceramic on my '12 and I absolutely love it. Perfect 'smoked' look and no visibility issues at all at night. In fact, I'd say it helps visibility as it cuts down on those glaring SUV headlights behind you

    When I went to get my tints I had 20% in mind because I've seen a few 20% tints and it looked good on WRBs. I went with 30% in the end because I was warned how dark the 20% is at night. I was asked where I lived, etc and I told them Manayunk (a suburb of Philly). With my town there is only street parking for most people so parallel parking is going to have to be your best friend. I was told 20% may be too dark to see out clearly in your rear view and you would likely have to turn your windows down to see out your side mirrors at night too. With 30% I am able to see out my rear view nicely and I can have my windows closed when I need to see out my side mirrors. My 30% is also dark enough in the day time to look the way I want it to look so it was a win-win for me.
