OP, having 5% all around with 35% on windshield is awesome. But if I would do it all over again I would just tint the fronts with 35% to match the factory tints on the back.

Pull all the tint, 5% front and double 5% back. I don't like people looking in my truck.

Matter of personal opinion I guess, but I personally matched the front two and very happy with the decision. I do notice I have to be more careful at night when I make turns - not sure if that would be worse with the limo tint.

I'm having my DC done tomorrow with 5% on all windows, 50% percent on the whole windshield, and 5% strip. I know its very illegal but all of my vehicles have been this way or darker and I like my privacy.

wow. I cant believe people here actually tint their windshields dark. That sounds downright unsafe. And 5% all the way around? How do you drive at night knowing you are hindering your vision like that? Do not say you can see out at night with 5% tint - i've been in many cars with this tint and it is simply not safe after the sun goes down.

50% really isn't that bad on a windshield at night. Most people wouldn't really don't even notice that it's tinted unless I tell them. It mostly helps during the heat of the day and keeps the glare down and heat out. I've ran 35% percent on a few vehicles and that can be sketchy at night and if I'm driving at night, 95% of the time its on well lit roads. I've had my autos this way for the last 13 years and do fine driving at night with it. Many people think its the dumbest thing ever but its what I like and I'm sure I'm not alone.

I have to scratch my head on that one as well.

"Cool" v. "safe" ......... I'll get back to you on that ....
