Mine are pretty light and I still find it hard to see at night when trying to find things.

From what I have seen looking at the "darkest legal Tint" fitted to the Tint Professor cars in the shopping centres you would have to be happy with that. You cannot see into those cars.

We had thermal/UV block tint fitted to the Territory. It would have looked much sexier with Dark tint on the dark paintwork but this stuff works awesome at keeping the car cooler on 40degree days.

Go darker on the rear windows/screen and legal on the front 2, that way it will still be dark as but you will be able to see at night.

no need to make the rear darker than the front... the light from outside coming throught the front window brightens up the front for you... once use to the 20 it's fine... but difference between 20-25% really isn't much....

Im going to Hi Jack this thread

Is it difficult to apply tint yourself?
I Did this on the rear quarter windows of my EB pice of piss but when it came to do the Rear windows i struggled.
I had the glass out and tried 4 times to get it perfect but couldn't manage to get rid of these stupid crese like bubbles.
I belive it is because of the curves in the glass?
Has any One Else had this problem?
Cheers

Been to tint professor, they broke my car and refused any fault. Never going back there.

I had 10% on my old Falcon and got pulled over plenty of times and never got picked on for the tint.

I think he's just jealous he can't answer the question, so had to throw something in for the hell of it.

FYI to minimise confusion, tint comes in 5%, 20%, 35% and 50%.
Not 10%, 15% etc.
