Need your opinion on window tinting!

I am going to get my windows tinted at the end of the week and I am still in a dilema as to how I should do it.

The choices that I have come up with are:

35% all the way around (35% is the legal limit in California for the front windows)

or

35% on just the two front windows and then on the two small windows as well as the rear window, doing a limo tint.

WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK???

i'm 35% on the front two and then 20% on the rear three

what colour is your car?

the darker colour of the car the darker the tint will appear

welcome to alberta we eat cow, drill oil and rope calves

wants to push you down a flight of stairs to see if you are like a slinky or if you bounce like a ball... either way, I am quite sure I will be amused

I have ABM, and I started to go with the darkest legal tint, but decided against it. But I did do the tint that is helps with heat, had to down here in Louisiana. So, it's dark, but not so dark you can't see in easily. I only decided to do that to keep handprints off my windows of those wanting to look in when I was not around. Your car will look good regardless!

I have 15% on my sides and back. looks great. but 50% is my legal limit. do all of itthe limo tint. if you dont want that, do the limo on the back. you wont really notice a difference.
