    Nice. 5% is really dark, I hope you don't do much night driving, if you do, try not to go in reverse as much as possible.

    5% is going to be overkill IMO...the dark interior will add to darkness of the tint. You can get 30% and it will still look very dark, but provide a nice clear view out the rear at night.

    5% is going to be ridiculously dark. Mine is 20% all the way around and looks great and isn't bad at nighttime.

    Well, ty all for the congrats. It is nice to be welcomed, so i decided to go with the window tinters advice since he does them all the time. I went 35% to both front, 20% to the 2 back, and little windows behind rear doors, and 5% to the rear, and it was done around 5 p.m. was not likeing leaving my brand new car anywhere where i could not see it
    all day, but was told it was in good hands, and trusted them! So the wife takes me and drops me off, Car looks awesome with the tint on that SWP paint.
    So i notice the guy is acting funny, now i start getting uneasy, he is dancing around my questions, and finally says we broke something on your back door trying to get a piece of trim off! I go from calm to Hot pretty fast. I say to him you do realize this car is not even 24 hours in my possesion yet, and only has 36 miles on it. He says he is very sorry and a new piece is on its way.
    So i knew being angry was not going to do anything, then he tells me he can superglue it back on!. I said excuse me? Lol your crazy, just get my piece of trim from the subaru dealer asap and put it back on, i will post some pics tomorrow. Besides that, car looks beautifull.

    They only go as low as 5%, IMO 5% is going to be dark at night, if it becomes an issue with seeing, i will take it back and have them go 15%.
