Re: 15 vs 20 % tint

My 17% doesnt look too dark from the outside but blocks alot of heat and looks pretty good. I would have 5% on the sides and 15% on the windshield if i could get away with it.

Re: 15 vs 20 % tint

I went with 20% and like Rob said, the windshield lets in a lot of light, which makes the front of the cabin brighter. A light-colored interior will amplify this. 20% definitely looks better than stock but if I were to do it over, I'd probably go a little darker.

Re: 15 vs 20 % tint

i think its the closes match at 20. i would rather be a little lighter in the front than darken then the rear windows

plus dont know about your laws but here they give out tickets all the time if they dont seem lighter in the front, even a tab bit will avoid getting pulling over

Re: 15 vs 20 % tint

This is 5% in the rears which the meter read 2% and my fronts are 3%.. If I'm going to get pulled over i might as well make it worth my while!!

This is a mistake an officer who pulled me over made. He didn't have a meter and the ticket got dismissed
