I'm getting my car tinted soon and I still haven't made up my mind on what percent I should get which percent do you guys think looks best. I want something dark but not to dark and not to light. I have the beige interior. What percent is kinda in between? And what tint would look best on my satin silver cadenza ?35%? The legal limit in WI is 35% in back and 50% in front. All Answers Appreciated

I recently had my 2015 tinted. Now, I'm in South Florida, so the laws may be different, but I went 20% all around, and it looks great. I think legal here is around 30% front, and 15% back. I never had any issues with the police bothering about my tint. I always go a little darker on the front. ;)

I have 35% (state limit here) all around on my Black Cadenza here in GA. Plenty dark for me. Looks good too...

Looks awesome man, but I think this is a bit too dark for me. However that tint goes nice with your car color.

I think ours is 35% legally but I think I have maybe 20 on rear window, back and front windows, and 50% on the whole windshield. The cops around here don't bother me at all because it doesn't look THAT much darker than the legal limit. I have a metallic bronze with beige interior. It looks nice.

I run 20% on all windows and 50% on the whole windshield. I haven't been stopped for it yet, but I do get stopped occasionally to ask me what a K7 is since I have rebadged the car. :)

rmorris, you really can't tell from the outside that it is tinted. 50% lets in plenty of light to not affect driving in any condition (make sure to use non-ammonia cleaner, though that is any tinting anywhere I think) but it does make a world of difference on the inside. I love mine :) Will do it on my future vehicles.

The shop that did mine did it for cash, and did the whole windshield.

You can't tell from outside of the car, especially with the angle the windshield is at, it looks no different than stock. :)

Now I have some serious deliberating to do. You guys haven't had problems with the heat and cold effecting the tint have you?

No, not on any part of the car, just like any other tint. Just make sure that if you are able to put any windshield stickers on the outside of your car that you do. We have a large chain carwash here (Crew Carwash) that has recently gotten stickers for the outside of the windows because of people with tinted windshields. I took my old sticker off and had to use a razor to try to get parts of it. Long story short I took off a little bit of the tint (which sucked). The outside sticker is covering most of the peeled area.

No problems here, been through 100+ degree heat, and -10 degree cold.

Tint is flawless, just clean it with the right cleaner, and be mindful of seatbelts being let back carefully and you should be golden.
