Getting the V50 tinted tomorrow and have no idea what to use for %. I live in VT and nothing is allowed on the fronts, so that's another dilemma. Please provide input! I don't want it to look murdered out, I just want a nice clean look. The V50 is passion red.<p>Pics appreciated!

I've never heard of someone having the front darker than the back <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><br>Anyways I say F the law...Roll it down when you spot the boys. 5% all around that hoe!<p>187 that $hit!<p>

I really like the fact that my 5% in the rear windows helps keep the car cooler, but I will be the first to admit my 35 front and 5 back is annoying in the looks department...I'd say 35 all the way around or 20, and just roll the fronts down when you see the law. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> My 5% (limo tint) is awesome for privacy but at night it does get hard to see out of...

Don't bother. I like tint, but I hate the uneven look, so until it's legal to do all windows (except windshield... that's just silly), I say leave well enough alone.

Re: (jdsr917)

I added uniform 35% (it's what I have). It's darker, but it doesn't look too out of the ordinary - it's a stockish look. I vote uniform tint with whatever percentage you decide to go with. I got pulled over today for my tint and was happy it was under the legal limit. It was quite satisfying to see the disappointment in his face as he walked away without giving me a citation.

I was confused with that too... because over here it's just the other way round... <p>so if you have a 95% tint (or 98%, like me) - it's the amount of light blocked by the tint. <p><IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Ok, thanks for clearing that up, I thought I was right in my use of percentages! I'm thinking I may go 35% all around. I have 5 hours to figure it out!

Re: (Veefifty T5AWD)

But it is LEGAL.<p>Don't quote me on that, but I'm fairly certain car factories apply 35%. Your choice though, I would do 15% all around
