I'm finally getting tint on my car. I've never had tint done before so I need some help. The guy asked me if I want 20,15, or 5. I told him that I don't want it really dark so he said I probably want 15. He also asked about the strip on the windshield but I told him I didn't know. What would you all suggest? I want dark enough to help block sun but not so dark it causes problems seeing at night. Also would you all do the windshield strip or not? Thanks!

I have 20% all around, I like it, and the strip helps block the sun quite well. ImageUploadedByAutoguide1343273855.417223.jpg

I'd only go as low as 20% anything darker, you'll have night driving issues. Mind you though, 20% might too dark for your state's laws, if you want to stay legal.

I feel the darker the better. I like to look at people when I drive but I don't like them looking at me :p
Haha 10% all the way around and 35% on the winshield does the trick quite well even on the brightest of days lol

I have, I believe 18% on the front two windows and 5% on the back IIRC. Let me tell you, I live in BFE and sometimes backing up with no street lights around and even WITH street lights at night is a pain. I LOVE the look though of the dark windows and I am just extra careful at night...I wouldn't get the stripe only because I feel it wouldn't look good, but everyone has their own opinion. I think if you got 18%/15%(whatever the shop offers) would be sufficient and look good.

I have the strip on my windshield and I love it. We have them on all our vehicles. I have 5% all around and for the strip, yes it is a bit difficult at night when you are on unlit roads, I also live in bfe, but I wouldn't have gone Any lighter. ImageUploadedByAG Free1343397308.794012.jpg

Sorry for crappy picture of my dirty windshield. My brow does come down a little further than is legal, but I have rarely used my visors at all since I have tinted my windows. The only thing I don't like is the void where the antenna is.

I have 30% on my tinted windows. In Indiana, well where I live at anyway, anything darker than 30% will more than likely get you stopped by the police. When I asked the shop that tinted my windows all around for me, I asked to make the windows dark enough that they're still legal.
