Tint % Question

So, I have an appointment Sat to get my car tinted with you guys... I've been looking at pics from this site and from your site.

I feel like 20% may be too dark, esp at night. But I feel like 30% is a little too light for what I want.

Is there a way to get 25%?

I had the same debate, and asked them the same question. Even debated 20% in the back and 30% up front.

I ended up doing 30% all around and am very happy with it. Good privacy, no unwanted attention.

I have 20% and love it. Nothing lighter not darker. Have had 5% in the past and 35%. 35% did nothing, 5% way to dark.

I do not get hassled at all with 20% and say this is the way to go. At night, also no problems.

I have had both and I hardly notice the difference. Either % are better than the other during the night.

i dont have a 25%. as far as night vision, you get used to it whatever you put on. you can do 20 on the back window, 30 on the sides. doesnt matter what you choose, i dont charge extra for it. i personally like 20, but to each his own.

I have mine solely for night,....i HATE headlights in my face and the 35% completely takes care of that with no reduction in visibility... it actually increases it IMHO becuase it allows your eye's to stay adjust to the dark
