Looks to be around a 20%. Looks light, you can see through the side windows.

Hey, 20% tint is better then NO tint. Looks good. Plus it'll keep the 5-0 away from bugging you.

Your wife sounds like a good woman.

ok, i called the guy who did it and he told me the factory tint is 17% in the back, so he laid 20% on the front on-top of the factory tint. he said when he measured it, it came out to 14% so its a little darker than the back. legal limit around here is 50%, so im about 2.5 shades darker than legal

Thanks for finding that out. I know alot of people around here with really dark tint and they haven't gotten pulled over or gotten introuble with the law yet. I'm still debating on whether to get 35% in the front or 20% in the front.

One more question is it hard to see out of the DS and PS windows with the 20% tint on it?

Go with 35% around our area... they can still see in to see you so they won't give you any hassles about it. I've had 35% on my past 3 vehicles and haven't had a problem *knock on wood* with the police.
