My Ride: 2002 vert m3 lsb smg
I have double limo tint in the back window. and all my windows are tinted, the back triangle windows are limo tinted as well, only one layer. Side windows are a lighter tint, don't remember the percentage. When the sun it fully blaring in the back window, I can barely see it, someone tailgating me with bright lights, no need to worry and I can barely see that too. You can still see out the back window...just blocks out any light.

I have never been a fan of stock this and that. First thing is to tint/lower etc...

20-35% all around looks good. Go darker on the rear windshield.

And the pic you posted above is exactly why I've been putting off my decision to tint because I think it looks kinda funny to have tinted windows up just hanging there, without the top. Would look even weirder on my car with the blue top; not clean at all lol.

I liked the blue because it seemed distinguised to me, and different, to go with the grey interior. But when I had the ragtop replaced a while back due to a shattered rear window, I feel I should have asked for a black top instead of the blue again. Oh well...live and learn.

Anyone with 35% tint on a white vert can share pics with the top down but windows up?
