30% is soooo light.. do 15% that's whats on my moms Pathfinder that I posted and it looks good. I had 15% put over my 30% and got my 5% and its totally fine even at night. Only time it bothered me was on a weird turn at my girlfriends school where theres no lights and already limited visibility.. but just cracked my winder a couple inches and was fine. Orlando is a very bright place even at night, it's never dark there, your fine, even with 5%

I believe the tint place stocks 5% 15% 30% and 50% (uses it for front windshields).

I am afraid of getting a ticket for the tints since my dad got one ($90) for having 20% tints on his front side windows.

I know some people will never get bothered for their tints but it would really suck if I got a ticket right after the 15% tints go on the car.

The main reason why I want to tint the car is to reduce the glare without getting in trouble with the law but I will look at more pictures of 30% tinted cars before I decide anything.
