So tomorow im gettin my ex coupe's windows tinted. Anyone have an y last second advice or opinions because I was thinking of going 20% on the front two and back windshield and 5% on the small rear windows (if you wana call them that). Im just not sure is 20 going to be too dark and require me to roll down my windows at night or does that setup sound good?

the back two windows IMO should as dark as the back windshield. i'd get the back windshield as dark as i can. my bro has limo tint on the back window and it looks badass.

well its all in your personal opinion. to me i think the darker the tint the better. but its what you like. your step bro might not like his 5 but you might like it. its all in opinion. but good luck with it. ask your installer about it

IMO 35% fronts and 5% rear is the best, I've had it on several cars (including my Si) and never been hassled by any cops because the contrast between the 2 makes the front look very light. Whatever you do don't get the same tint all the way around, that will result in a very fast fix-it ticket :thumb: at least in CA it will
