Should look good. The black interior really makes things really dark with even a lighter tint. 35 should be just right.

What I was looking at was 20% on the rear 3, and 35% on the front too. That should look pretty solid, and prob. get me lotsa tint tickets

Tickets? Bah.... I've had mine tinted since Sepetember with exactly that, I live in NY and I've only gotten 1 ticket, which I'd attribute to being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

It depends on the angle.. the pictures make it look darker than it normally appears to the naked eye.

I've had 35% tint on my Viggen Coupe pretty much since a week after I bought it and have never been pulled over or questioned for it. My Trans Am has had 20% all the way around for probably 3 years now and has only been questioned one time when a cop had to break into my car for me at a carshow (friend closed the door with the keys in it) and realized he couldn't see through the window to position the rod..

it was pretty fun watching him look through the windshield to get the angle right.. hehe.

I always viewed Window Tint as an enabler... if you're racing or driving in a way that would make them want to pull you over.. you'll get that citation on top of everything else. Otherwise the only thing you have to worry about is somebody walking around with a light meter at quota time (the same could be said for the whole "no front license plate" law in Minnesota).

haha, yea i know how that goes. I used my no front plate tickets to get me out of speeding tickets on many occasions. The more I think about it, I am gonna go with the 20 in the rear and 35 in the front.

Mcrowly got any pics of your 9000 tints?
