I've got a tinting appointment next week. I can't decide whether I want 45% up front and 20% for the rest, or if I just want 45% for all of them.

Kinda worried about the asymmetry of using two different shades, as well as the visibility out the back window at night. Any thoughts or recommendations?

I got 30% all around and 20% on the rear window. I wish I had gotten 20% all around now. I see fine through the back window and people can see me fine through the others :(

I just got 20% on the back 5 windows and 50% on the driver/passenger windows. I think it looks good. I'll try to post a picture a little later today.

hi Charlie Rose... I have 20% all around on my 2012 SEL and It is fine when looking out the back window. The back up lights are pretty strong so it also helps

Thanks for the info, all. I guess I'll go with the 45%/20% combination. Will try to post pics when it's done.

Dude we have like the same exact car. Mine is still on the way. Where were you able to get your tint done in Orlando? I'm anticipating having problems finding someone who can do the front windshield since supposedly only the eyebrow is legal.

I'm loving all of the Tint photos here! Can anyone recommend a good tint shop in the Atlanta area and price range? I'll definitely let them know who sent me!
