    Hey man, If you check my pictures I'm doing 30 percent all the way around on a black car with a black interior, my suggestion is don't go much darker than that!

    Ive got 30% on my SWP. I went 30 because my 0ther SWP hatch back has 5% all the way around.. It is beyond to dark.. Unfortunately my run in with cops is to much already so I just stayed legal.

    Yeah, in Alaska any tint is "illegal" can't roll too dark, would be nice to live in a place I didn't have to duck cops for tint

    well where i live "Maine" it is legal to go 5% to all windows or darker as long as the 2 front sides are 35%, the state police wanted to go as dark as possible on their K-9 unit's to keep the sun off the dogs, people complained so the law was changed. yay for us! and personally 5% is not to dark considering Most suv's you buy from the factory are atleast that dark if not darker. and i have the paper work to show that it is to the state of maine Laws.

    Im pretty sure that no company has ever shipped a car from the factory with a 5% tint, let alone darker than that. Do you think a soccer mom in an SUV would be able to reverse that thing at night with a 2% tint? No no no no

    Any SUVs I've bought have had the front tint matched at roughly 20%.

    Looks good and congrats, but good luck at night! I had 15% on the rears in my acura and when I was out of the city at night time, I might as well have had no windows at all.

    Its actually quite easy to break that trim piece.I broke mine while trying to take it off.It has to be taken off if you are removing the door card.
