    actually the pic makes it looks like a larger difference from the inside than what you really see.

    I have a question on my extended cab it has mirrored rear windows and the guys who tints my windows says it will look funny is that just a professional opinion or does it look alright im thinkin of 20% tint on the fronts.

    you probably have smoked privacy glass...however...its still not mirrored

    pay the extra for the good tint up front and you'll be fine

    Yes it is 40%, actually like 43%. Windshield tint is legal here down to 40%.
    Also due to my license plate I can have any % tint I want on the back, in my case any % I want on the rear window since I only have two doors. I'm debating whether to go with 20% or 5% on it.
