    Looking
    i have 5% all round on my sedan ... and iit looks f'n awesome ... but i often have trouble (especially with the A pillar blind spot) seeing around corners when there is minimal street lights ... i think if you were to just do the rear of the car in the darker shade ... but left the front windows legal visibility would be fine ... if you like the look

    i got the darkest legal on driver and passenger windows only. then got next level darker on rear doors and back window. have had no problems with it. but am used to backing with my mirrors. also have reverse camera that has night vision. but my mrs. drives a holden cruz i wont trust her driving mine. she is too hard on the brakes. and also keeps forgetting to look when backing up. sometimes i think she needs a armored car.

    Anyone with 5% tint on anything other than cargo area windows is an absolute fool. I've got it on rear and sliding door of my van and it's nearly lethal at night. You need to triple check before lane changes. God help anyone who pulls out of an intersection and doesn't see a bike rider because their front windows are illegally tinted.

    my utes darkest legal on sides and 20% on the back...20% is pretty good at night, it takes the glare out of the headlights but you can still see that a cars there haha...and still looks pretty nice

    Very interesting, im definatly only going for the rear of the car, the two front passenger windows will be darkest legal and the rest im still trying to decide, my car is black so even the darkest legal would look good.
    going to have to think long and hard about this one lol
    cheers

    My votes for darkest legal, got it on mine, if you want to compare go to the show off your ride section most ppl will say what tint they've got in the description.

    I have 10% tint, during the day I sometimes have to switch to the digital speedo cause I struggle to see the needles when the lights aren't on, however it's really good with glare and driving in afternoon sun, people also struggle to see me in the car.
    At night you have to double check everything cause its pretty limited vision, and I never have to worry about the headlights in my mirrors from cars behind me.
