    Have a silver S3 and am planning on getting the rear windows tinted (partly for looks but also to keep the sun out of my baby girls eyes )
    On the looks side what shade / darkness do you think I should go for?
    I've tried google searching but can't find any quality pics to reference.

    If you have pics too that would be a massive bonus.

    I have a silver car and the factory tints look good on it, not sure of the percentage though.

    These were standard factory tints in my old car which looked fine so go for it.

    Whatever you do don't go too dark. It looks so Halfords and silly. If you want to do it then go for a lighter shade - ~35% sounds good.
