Looks good!
I had 35% on my fronts for 7-8 years and only got pulled over for it once, and that was at 3 in the morning when they were trolling for dui’s and grabbed any excuse they could to tag any cars on the road.

I have the same percentage on my GTI and had the same on my last car. And the same on my wife's too, now that I think about it lol. Haven't had any tint related issues in many many years.

35% all around. I've done that on all my cars and, to date, I've never had an issue.

35% all around. I might have gone for 20% if I could do it again, but I feel like 20% is where you really start risking getting pulled over.

18 sides and back, 80 on the windshield is almost clear. I hate the sun, and I live in Florida.
