You should post these into an "Official Sonic Blue pictures" thread. You may need to start a new thread and ask member ZX3_Chick to add the thread to the sticky "Official 2012+ Colors thread".

I'm debating what tint to order and I'm going to try my luck with an ebay kit. Delaware laws SUCK though; you cant tint headlights or taillights, you cant tint the windshield at all, and fronts are limited to 75%. Thank god they don't care how dark you tint the back and rear windows. I kinda think a really dark tint and nothing on the front would just look stupid, so I'm thinking of doing 35% rear and 70% front. The front is included in the kit so I may as well use it-even if it's barely anything. Do you think I could get away with 50% front? My car's red already though and I don't need another cop magnet.

I am in the same situation here in QC. I was thinking about 70% FS - 50% BS - 35% B but still debating. I have two more months to make a final decision.
Here is a tint simulator.

*FS = Front side
*BS = Back side
*B = Back

Not being able to tint headlights, tail lights, and windshield are all quite normal laws

50% tint is very light, I doubt anyone would be able to tell. I would, however, caution putting ebay tint on your nice, brand new car. You don't want it to go bubbly, purple, peel, fade, etc...
