Opinions on tint with SSII

I know I'm in NJ and drivers/passenger side window tinting is illegal however I will still do it despite getting one fix it ticket in the past 10 years.

What would you guys recommend as an acceptable tint for SSII so I don't look like I'm hiding illegals in my car?

On my TiAG 530 I have 15% all around so I'm wondering if I should do the same again.

I saw your blacklines post and I think I will order myself a set of those before my car arrives. Would you be able to snap some more pics around the car for me so I can get an idea, please?

My preference on tint is light. I did 50% on my AW and glad I did. I like how light tints are subtle so that when you look at the car you see the car not the tint, then when you think about why the car looks good you start noticing the subtle accents. To me dark tint draws too much attention and says hey look I changed my car. Just a matter of preference. One I don't like at all is different tint on front and backs, whatever tint you choose should be the same all around.
