$179 in Bridgeport! I've had these guys do 3 of my cars already, and they just happen to also be the best around. I think I'm going 15% all the way around, and will post pics next week.

urgh.....tint place im going to only has 15% and 30%....not sure if 15% would be too dark on a white car (more contrast = higher likelyhood of getting pulled over, no??)

some 35% on here looks really dark and some 15% looks really light... obviously depends on the film used...

Ya I just went 20% and it seemed too light so I had to redo it to 15 and I'm happy, just enough tint with good visibility at night. Luckily the shop liked me so they gave me a discount the 2nd time around. Wahoooo!

its such a hard choice... I think 35% looks too light in some pictures, yet in others it looks plenty dark enough.
I met a local with a sedan like me and all around it seems just a tad too light for my likes.

I love the way 20% looks on a sunny day but on a cloudy day/ night it just looks like you're asking for trouble from the cops.
I dont know what to do

20% is like the perfect tint here (legal limit is 35) not to dark, but dark enough.

anyway, 30% for me. thats 30% film, itll probably read 25-27 if tested. it seems a little dark in certain light, and i get worried around cops at night or on a cloudy day. but i like it. you cant easily see inside and its very nice on the inside.

20% on the back, 35% on the front. I've got the sunroof shade open and it's a very sunny day. Not so dark as to draw too much attention but dark enough to give some privacy and keep the sun out of my daughter's eyes.

I have had Tint King do 4 vehicles in the past. Trust me, go with the "Performance" 20%. It's like looking through good sunglasses and not a smokey film. The additional cost is well worth it

I have 3M 5% ( balances out to 3%) all the way around, with a glare strip on windshield. Will post picture tomorrow.

Yes, it is DARK. Legal limits here in Florida is 30% on front 2 doors, 15% on the rest, which is really darker then most states are allowed to go. Being that I'm a tinter and most of the cops get their cars tinted at the shop I work at, they thankfully will show some leniency to us and know our cars and our customers cars ( I would too if I was getting 25% off a lifetime nationwide warranty tintjob )
