I did mean in only 30% blockage of UV. My installer didn't recommend going below that amount for the windshield due to visibility concerns and detection. On my side and back windows, I went with Huper 40 if I remember correctly (could have been 30)...meaning that it blocks 60% and is darker.
My apologies. I missed the most important part of your post - that we're discussing your windshield. I have no problems whatsoever with 50% on my windshield. You can see out perfectly with no visibility issues. But personally I would not go any darker. I suppose you could go 40% on the windshield as well, but I think 50% does the trick perfectly. I think there's absolutely no reason to go 70%. Just a waste of cash.

Summary - go 50% on the windshield.
