And I know for a fact that in my neighborhood, they do carry tint testing meters
Here they dont, I guess lucky us. They determine the legality of the tint by the fact that they can see who is behind the wheel. If they can , legal. If not illegal.

Simple , right?

I got 35 percent all the way around with tan interior. I wish I went darker. Definately do the the same percent all the way around. In my opinion doing different percent front to back looks really really tacky.

If you have a dark interior 30 to 35 might cut it. If I could do it again id probably try 25 or 30 percent instead of 35. What look do you want? Do you want the solid black cant see inside look? Then go real dark. If you want to just get rid of the fish bowl look you have with untinted windows but still want to see inside 25-35 is fine.

Also keep in mind the lower percent you go the harder it is to see at night. I dont know how some ppl can back up in darkness etc with 5-10 percent.
