Need tint comparison pics...

Hey guys. I'm having my G tinted a week from Friday, and I'm still deciding on what percentage to get. I'm a surgical sales rep, and the privacy issue is a fairly big deal to me considering I often keep expensive equipment in my car. I also play a lot of golf and use my car as a dressing room quite often. The 20% privacy would be nice, as I could change my clothes without worrying about ruining anyones day should they happen to see me undressing. <haha>

Seriously though, I'm stuck between 35 or 20% tint. I'd love to see some pics of darker colored G's (black interior) with the various tint percentages. Thanks in advance. By the way, here in Washington State the legal percentage is 35% although the lower numbers aren't usually enforced.

The lighting makes it look misleading, but I have 20% on the front and 5% on the back and rear windows. My previous car had 35% on the fronts and I was disappointed, now all our cars are 20/5. If youíre not worried about the legality of it, Iíd go 20% w/o any hesitation.

PS. Thereís a bright yellow s2000 parked directly behind me, thatís how great 20% tint is!

Wow that is dark -- 20 and 5 in back. For info 5 is Limo black and is really black.

I have a black G (with light interior) and I have 20 all around (Llumar). Enough here in FL, although legal is 35/20.

You should go to the tint person and see for yourself (he should have a sample)

Well, the car isn't black. My apologies. The tint is SolarGenics metalized film at IIRC 35/28.

Even if it were legal to go limo-dark in Texas, I think it looks gangsta-Pep Boys cheap. Film looks more refined with light filtering though it.

Don't have pics but you should get 12% all around. That's what I have on my DG sedan w/ black leather. At night it is limo, and daytime, you can barely see anything -(maybe just a figure moving a little bit).

5% Tints is the only way to go!

I got 5% all around, and the front windshield 49%

As big of an issue as privacy is to you I don't think 35% is dark enough. I would go with 20%.

Here is my black/black sedan with 50% front and 35% rear. In sunny weather you can see through the 35%.

I also live in the Puget Sound area, Mill Creek, and have had 20% on my Typhoon since I bought it in 1993 and have not had any issues with WASP or any local PD. I drive out to Monroe and Duvall all the time also, so I would go 20% on the rear and rear sides and 35% on the front side if you are worried about 20% all the way around.

Since it is cloudy out here 300 days a yr, the 5% rear window is an accident waiting to happen. It's tough to see in low light conditions out the back. I had this in my Typhoon for 1 month and replaced it with the 20% to match the sides.

My black G35 is being done in a week for 20% all around.

Hope this helps!

Mine is 35 gray, all windows except windshield. I agree, too dark looks gangsta, beside, you'd be getting pulled over here for much darker.
