    What percentage of Tint do you guys have on your Sportbacks?

    Mine is black and I'm looking to get tint all round but i have no idea what looks good.

    Maybe i could see some pics of yours?

    Thanks

    I had mine done in Limo Black from the centre pillar round. The fronts were also tinted to the legal limit too.

    ATVB!

    Here is mine, tinted all windows. Lightest possible on the fronts and medium around the back from the b pillar. Not too dark so that I can still see out of the car at night but enough so that it blends in and looks the part. Those cars that only have rears done look off to me, doesn't quiet blend in.

    its hard to see the level of tint on the windows in pictures as the car is always showing reflections of things around it... You can see the steering wheel through the window on the second pic.

    I am going for a slight tint on the rears as prev did tints on my leon fronts and backs and the fronts were a pain at night harder to see m/bikes during day with no lights on.

    Hmm thanks guys. Still not decided.

    May not get the driver and passenger windows done, as jonny1985 said, the cars come with a slight tint and by the time you have added what you have been told is the legal amount of tint, You are actually over the amount you are aloud as the factory tint wasn't taken into account.

    However I think it might look silly just having the rear heavily tinted. I might take it down the tinting shop and see what they recommend. I'll keep you guys updated.

    i honestly cant remember the percentage, i had it done so long ago now (about 3 years)
    all i remember is that i asked for the lowest lightest for the fronts and a medium tint on the rears... my last car had darker tints (not limo) and i hated it so i wanted one shade up.

    well i have a reversing camera on mine now so its doesnt bother me but still its nice to be able to see out the rear window.
    even though with the dimming rear view mirror and the dimming glass on the wing mirrors i sometimes feel like too much light comes through the tints, oh well i like it how it is though
