Id go like 55 or maybe one below that. Any darker gotta worry about bored cops plus I think 55 will pass nj state inspection.

I did 60 (or was it 65?) on the front and 45 on the back. Lee has a picture of it. I will download mine and add it here so you can see it.

Not the best picture, but I don't really have any after the tint was done.

I have 30 all around. The Previous owner had a dealer in Florida do it. I'm shocked I haven't gotten a ticket yet.

attempted to go 45 all around.. the effect of the pictures highly depends on lighting and angle.

I asked the dealer to have my car tinted 35% using Llumar ceramic tint before I took delivery. They claim it's 35% ceramic, but according to my research the CTX film (which I believe is Llumar's only ceramic film) doesn't come in 35%, only 40% or 30%. Their ATC film does come in 35% but is not ceramic. I'm working on getting to the bottom of the story, but figure this is 35% or close to it on an Oolong Gray with black leather interior/gray headliner.
