20% is fine on the side windows but I reckon its hard to see out the side if theres 5% on there.
Had a few mates which had 5% on their side windows run up islands at night because they could not see it.

one good thing about the 5% rear tint is headlight glare from behind is greatly reduced at night ... I don't even use to prismatic mirror for bright lights anymore.

Firstly, thanks for the replies.

Has anyone got some nice full size pictures of 20% tint on their white cars?

Cheers

white, or light coloured cars, make the tint look darker than it does on darker coloured cars in my opinion.

it also looks darker if you have dark interior as well. Light cars go for black tint.
Black cars go for chrome tint.

Cheers
