I'm getting my windows tinted tomorrow, and i need comparison pics for 20% and 35% tinting...

Also if im getting this done at a good price? for the 20% it'll cost me $200 for the car... but for the 35% it'll cost me $250 (as i would rather use Formula 1, but the darkest it goes is 35%) although i would rather the 20% so far ;)

Please, any help would be great

20% looks heaps better, but it's not legal, so it's your call.

seems like 20% is the go... for $50 i cant see the difference between Formula 1 and the one he wants to use...

im not too worried about the legality side of it, my last car was fairly dark.. well ill post up pics prolly closer to the weekend when im able to take pics in the daylight (otherwise at work all day)

Cheers guys, has helped me make my mind up really easily ;)

my red one is 35%, and the waggin is 20%. I'd say go 20% for sure if you're not worried about the cops!

Its your insurance that will void it if it is a reason that an accident was caused.

Go the 20 it is a bit darker and looks heaps better mine has been on for 5 years and the only time I ever got hasseled was a couple of weeks ago when I got booked {overtaking a d***head right hand lane dweller}but then he saw my dash and was so impressed forgot all about the tint. as long as you can see through the car you will be right
