I have 20% but wish I had 15% like my A4 did.

I've had 35%, 15%, and now 20% on 3 different cars (all black int. 2 black ext.)

35 was way too light.
20 is good for me

I think 15% is the way to go for you. Its dark enough where you need to lower your windows to talk to people at night, but light enough to see clearly.

p.s. Always drop all windows if you get pulled over. Cop will probably think you are doing it for his safety so he can see in and it protects you from him seeing that your windows are too dark. Though if he is a major cocklicker he will ask you to roll them up.

Be SURE to ask what brand film they are using.
This man knows what he's talking about.

15% is probably the perfect tint percentage.

I honestly wouldn't listen to anything else in this thread. If you're going to tint your windows don't waste your time and money getting 30% it is useless.

p.s. always roll all of your windows down if you get pulled over -- cop will hopefully think you're doing it for his safety (so he can see in), but you're doing it so hopefully he doesn't see your illegal tint, though if he is a major douche he will ask you to roll them up.
