I have 35% on the front 2 and 5% on the back 2 and tripple slider. I can see just fine at night and it looks damn good during the day. Also $118 is a great deal on that, it ran me 160 w/ a lifetime warrenty for mine...

did you call sammy? he is the man when it comes to tint hookups here in town. he worked at mothers and did dealership work for 4-5 years. give him a call and tell him i sent you and the price may get better since he hooks ppl i send in all the time.

I have 5% tint on the rear sidewindows and on the rear windows. Like said above, if its really dark I just open my slider. I have 20% up front which is good too. If I were you though, I would get one with a lifetime warranty. The 5% is fine to see out of at during all other times. The benefits of getting 5% are much higher than not getting it. 1. If your in college and gotta sleep inbetween class, your set :) 2. Looks good 3. Keeps a lot of the sun out when driving away from a low settin sun. Only thing I don't like is the difficuluty at night backing up with the window closed, but think about it. How much time do you spend driving around tryin to keep the sun out on hot days and how often are you backing up... at night.

The warranty covers the film, or at least around here the installers warranty the film for 5 years-lifetime.

I got 35% on the sides and 20% on the back for $100 with a lifetime warranty. If you want to see out of the back at night, get 20%. You won't be seeing much with 5%. 20% looks fairly dark from the outside, but really isn't bad at all from the inside.

I have double 15% on the driver and passenger and then 5% and two layers of 15% on the back 3 windows and 50% on the whole windshield. If you have trouble seeing at night I wouldnt recomend any darker then 30 or 35%. By the way I used to work at a tint shop here in Tampa and we used Suntek film which is one of the best around and as long as you keep it legal Suntek offers a free lifetime warrenty. just a thought maybe find a suntek dealer

im kinda wondering if the people who say 5% is to dark and dont have it ever have. i have 5 all the way around. it's dark but not in any hazardous way i have a cap on my truck right now for the winter thats tinted as well and i can still see to back up even though its a little hard. if need be i just open the rear window make sure im clear then just use my mirrors. idk if its to hard to see out it y wouldnt u just use ur mirrors?

EDIT: also with the legal issues. i know here its kinda like a seatbelt ticket the cops cant pull u over just for that reason although if u r pulled over for something else and werent wereing ur belt then u can get a ticket. its the same thing. they r not gonna pull u over for it ull only get a ticket mayb if u r pulled over for something else and they notice the tints are to dark. so just dont get pulled over.
