This is a really old pic of my monte right after I put my front window tint on. I had 20% on the rear quarter glass, and 35% on the front two windows. I loved this look. Didn't last long though because I got caught by the cops lol.

if you look at any of my pictures, the rear's are 20 and the fronts are 35. I was thinking of going darker, but didn't wanna deal with having to remove it if i ever had to. Hopefully these give you a little better idea....

Just gotta love all the awesome Montes here.
I was wondering about 35%. Almost got some for my Monte but decided break the law instead. I went 5% on all windows. Just gotta keep em down when goin to town. Law here says 35% is legal for front sides.

i wanted to go illegal, and even had a couple shops around here that'd do it for no extra $$, but i settled with -- it's hard enough to make certain things out in the dark with 35 let alone anything darker, and if i'm gonna pay a shop to put it on "professionally" i'm sure as shi* not gonna be happy if i get pulled over a month later and have to have it removed. If i would have been doing it myself, i'd have went darker, but i was looking for absolutely no air bubbles and no fading so i went professional. That's the way i looked at it....good luck with your decision

I have 35% on my fronts and 25% in the rears IIRC :p lol 35 is the legal limit here in Florida
Love the look, it's not too dark nor light. It's hard to judge Tint by just looking at pictures though, here's mine where you can see its not too dark
Someday I want to get my entire windshield done, Im thinking 50% or so
