    I have 20% all around and love it. At night you don't have the stupid riceboys staring at you, but you can see very well outside. It doesn't reduce visablity hardly at all. With limo tine (15-5%) it's a danger because you might not see a person walking on a crosswalk if you're looking out your side window and it's 12am.

    Legal limit depends on where you are. And you might change your mind about that if you lived where you get 340 days of sun a year. :)
    Your legal limit should be fine, it will take care of keeping your interior cooler. You don't want or need drug dealer tint, it attracts the po po.

    if you get a dark color on the back, Like mine i have 5% then get 20 or 35 on sides, it blends well and since the back is so dark it makes the rest look darker than it is. On my 4 door im doin 5% on back and 20% on the doors, oh and on the legal thing, ive never had a prob, cops around here dont bother u about tint unless ur being an ass to them and they just want to find somehting to give u a ticket for.

    My old Blazer had the deep factory tint in the back windows. It sucked to back up at night because I could barely see out the rear window.

    I went with 35% becasue I still wanted to be able to see out the damn windows at night. and the legel limit for tint in CT is 32% +/- 3.

    When I get mine redone, I'm going with 30%....I think the limit here is 30-35. Tint sure is nice with a dark interior and 330 days of sunshine a year.

    take your girlfriend in there and have sex, have someone outside look, if they can see you, go a little more darker. repeat until they can't see you anymore.

    It depends on location.

    In New York, you have to have 70% light passing through. However, it only has to be the front two windows.


    I agree with the no tint though. I'm not a fan of the way it looks... Also, I hate when I drive other people's cars, go to get out, and have to wait a year for the window to roll up (although if you didn't put power windows in your crx, you wouldn't have that problem). :unsure:
