    Have you driven a car with tints? If you havent do you know someone that could take you out especially at night, i think that might help with the decision! My sons car had tints for a while and when i drove it one night i found it quite scarey, you can't see a thing outside the car, so if someone was to approach your car you would not know! The other thing of course is the law, where we live here in Berkshire/Oxfordshire the police are really hot on tints, Maxx was stopped many many times and in the end thats what made him take them off. Whats interesting is he still says "best thing i ever did geting rid of those tints". Jx

    Are you planning on putting the tints on yourself, or is someone else going to do it ?

    Get 30% all around in my opinion. Anything lighter is not worth it, and anything darker will attract the wrong attention. Though i got: 20% on the backs and 30% on the front. My car is black too. I was a little hesitant at first but afterwards I loved it. I do wish i had gone 20% all round - but they arent hard on tints round here.

    My mum bought a car with tints and then moved on to one without, it was one of the first things she did to mod new car she couldn't stand it without the tints.
