what kinda tint should i get?

right now, my car has like, 35% tint on it. its nothing great, and i want darker. what should i go with tho? just darker, like, 5% tint, the mirror-to-dark tint, all mirror tint? what do you guys think? i have a dark green coupe.

also, should i tint the windshield? i know its illega, but i like the idea. i wanted mirror tint on it, but gotvtec brought up the point that if i somehow cause an accident, the mirror tint on the windshield could be at fault. anyway, what do you guys think? all opinions welcome.

yea i dont recommend u get titanium on the windshield.

WIth titanium, it depends on where ur car is standing, sometimes u can see right thru (im talkin 35%), other times u can't see anything besides a pure reflection, and the good part is, is that it doesn't look cheap like pure mirror tint.

i wud imagine it'd still reflect back, since there is the "mirrorness" to it, if u do it on the windshield.

Im not sure if theres lighter then 35%, but i'll call up the shop tomorrow, and ask 'em 4 ya. But thas here in NY, duno about there.
