Tint %

Need help from you all. Could you please post pics of your tint% and what type of tint? Thanks. I am trying to stay away from anything toooo dark, but still dark enough to flow with theme.

The patient....

I went with 28% all the way around. I wanted something that isn't to dark and something that isn't to light. This worked really nicely for me. Here you are on Jerez Black.

I went super light in the front. 50% front, 35% rear. I'm happy I went with that, super clean. Surprisingly I got a lot of compliments.

I'm way over tints, to be honest mainly thats why.

good luck on your choice though!

28% is looking yummy right now.

@ Leo, it looks awkward with no tint and black wheels right now. But I am with you on overly dark tint. I had 5% all around on my VW and had to roll down the windows in a hurry everytime a cop pulled up. Not cool!

I like this a lot. I think dark tint takes away from the beauty of AW, so your decision really fits the car. I'd actually like to go a tad bit lighter than you did, but stick with a darker rear window as well.
