Tint help/suggestions

I'm getting my G6 tinted next week or the week after, and I wanted to see what your guys opinions are on tint level. I had 35% on my old truck and wanted it slightly darker, but I'm worried 20% will be too dark or cause problems. The cops around here are cool, but I'm not subject to only driving in my town. So what do you guys think 20% or 35%? I don't really wanna do 35% on the front and 20% on the back because you'll be able to see a difference.

are you worried about getting pulled over or not being able to see?

if your worried about getting pulled over go for the 35%

if your worried about not being able to see the 20% is fine. u can see right thru it. i used to have 20% on my whole windshield

Im worried about both lol The 35% was pretty hard for me to see through at night, and I don't want to create trouble with the police, but they are really chill around here.

I mean with the 35% I had on my previous vehicle you could barely make out the shape of someone in the vehicle. Should I get the strip across the windshield?

Ehhh that doesn't look so hot to me. Im just tall, so I don't want it to impair my vision. Im about 6' 1'' so I sit up a bit. But they look nice if they aren't huge.

Haha as long as you learned from it. I just want my car to have subtle mods that look classy but mostly stock.

My emblems are getting a chrome insert over where the red goes.

If 35% was hard to see through, you probably shouldn't get tint. You'll find 20% much more difficult to see through.

Well, obviously I want tint, but I just had a hard time seeing at night. It seems like each place I've had do tint varies on how dark their tint is for the same percentage. I think I am going to do 35% all the way around
