I am new here/Just a tinting question

Hello everyone. I just have a question. I have the 2001 focus se gold and I am thinking about tinting the windows. I thought about using 2 1/2% black tint but now I am thinking about using, I think its called, mirror gold tint. I was wondering which would look better. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advanced.

Thank you guys for your suggestions. I will be sticking with the black tint. Black, to me, gives me the intial impression of mystery when I look at a vehicle with black tint. Thanks again.

Thats the way I am. If I plan on doing something for my vehicle, I ask for tips and suggestions first before I actually do any modding. I just bought this vehicle 4 days ago and I want it to look good. Thanks again everyone.

Go with black.

And make sure you check out your local tinting laws too. Some places really enforce it and some don't.
