man i dont think anyones has that. Most shops in CA go by 5's and 10's. It should be really easy to find 30 or 35% cause that usually the stock tint.

I know "legal" for you is 32%... but that's just a general number they toss out. Just like the "speed limit" is "65". You can cheat a little bit and have nothing to worry about.

Here in Cali, legal is 70%, which is almost clear. Most of us go with 35%, or even 20%, and are fine.

Go with 20% all around. It will look great. If you're REALLY worried, go with 25% or 30% if the shop has it. If you are within 15%, the cops will never even be able to tell the difference if they try. thumbsup

my side windows are tintes 35% which is the same thing. Here's some pics. Pretty dark, you can still kinda see inside. Any angle except dead to the side, it looks black.
I got the sides and the wedges the same so it looks more "stock" if that makes any sense. I hate when the wedges are totally black like 20% and then the sides are 35% or less. Looks like it's missing something.

man that 35% looks really really dark at an angle. I'm going to get 20% i think. will that be hard to see out at night? During the day if looking in the window can you see anything in the car?

I have 20% all the way around and have no problem seeing at night as someone already said from an angle you can somewhat see in. Yet when dead on it seems nice and dark which to me is tight as hell. Also I had 15% all the way around on my eclipse and in the rain it was hard to see shit although you get used to it.
