Post pictures of your tint and percentage!

I have an appointment on Thursday to get a tint installed. I am not sure how dark I want to go so pictures would help me make the best decision.

Thanks!!!

If you think about it, if you're deciding between 15 and 20, 5% isn't going to make that big of a difference. I would personally go with 15.

Good point.

Dark tint on black looks much different than it does on white.

might change legality if you wanted to be on the safe side though.

haha well like i stated in my pervious post
i got pulled for them.. i was not speeding nor i violated any traffic laws
the cop pulled me over and said. sir i am pulling you for your tint and your front plate.
o.O i know.. what the hell?
that time i was in Walnut, CA. ironically, all of my friends had 15 all tint too. and they didnt have any troubles with authorities... and yes they all have nice cars too
. just remember... a few of the mods that are pure sex.. are illegal....

i opted out of the front windscreen getting any tint, I am 6'-1", and that tint bar ends up being right in my field of vision, and it bugs the crap out of me.
