I had 35 front 20 rear on my last car. 20 all around on this one. I liked 35% on the front better.

There are definite visibility issues at night when driving in places with no streetlights while looking out my side windows. I was surprised at how big a difference that 15% makes.

Imho 5% is just way too dark for the back. 20 is about the darkest I'd go in the back for the same reason I kept my reverse lights clear when I tinted my tails. It's not worth the slightly better looks for the huge decrease in safety.

Yonkers, you still liking your iPhone 5? Next month I can upgrade and as you know, Sprint's selection of phones is not all that great so its looking like the 5 is inline for my next phone

Yup, I like it more and more as I use it. The camera is phenominal amongst other things. coming from android the app switching speed of iPhone is awesome I can return a text/email and go back to playing bad pigs or angry birds without waiting for the game to re-boot etc.
I will say I think the galaxy s and the razr M are both worth a look as well, however I'm happy with my choice.

I'm at 15% all around and 35% on the windshield and, its not bad at all. You get use to it as well which, makes the lightless roads easier.
