    25% tint on back window and side windows all around? Any experiences with this tint%?

    I'm getting the new Mirage tinted at 25% all around. Last time it was 32% all around but it didn't deflect heat great, just ok. Now with this darker tone I'm wondering if anyone has experience with 25% tint and night driving?

    I have the 3M tint in my Outlander Sport and I highly recommend it.

    What % you get? I did the 3M as well. It feels good on the inside, but it's pretty dark on the outside. My state tint limit is 32% so here's hoping no tickets in my future.

    My 3M tint is 32%. I will say that that's the upper limit for night time driving for me. In retrospect next time (if there is one) I'll try about a 25% tint for the front windows and stay with a 32% for the rear doors and hatch.

    Yes I'll have to test out the 25%. If it's too dark they will switch it to 32% for me for free.

    I always do
    5% on the back,
    15% on the side,
    50% on the windshield.
    with a good expensive tint, there no visibility restrictions.

    I took it on a night drive and visibility was actually better! The bright LEDs everywhere were muted well. I'm please with 3M charcoal.

    Mines ceramic tint.

    0% rear windows
    22% front windows
    Windshield - TBD as I'm unsure how much more would it take to effectively cut down heat build up and retention.

    Sheeeeeeit, in that LA heat? I'd have it at 5% limo tint all around except the windshield, that'd be at 32%. I saw plenty of sedans with limo tint in Van Nuys, if its fine for Hollywood, it should be fine for me and you too. Lol.
