    A lot of that would depend on where you live and how closely tint laws are followed. Tint looks nice but if you live somewhere where 20 all around is not legal and cops tend to ticket for it it can be quite a head ache.

    Greetings and welcome to the club!

    No matter the level, tint will make you more likely to get pulled over. Not worth it imo.

    20% would look great, but like the other member stated, check with the local law to see what the limit is. Usually its around 30%.

    Ok. California is 70% for the two fronts so essentially no tint is legal there but anything is fine for the back. 20% starts to push it in terms of visibility.

    I had 35% front and 20% rear on my wrx. I liked the way it looked, but have not tinted by current car due to the reasons stated above.
