Car looks badass chawkins. I did my windshield 35 on one of my cars and took it off after two weeks. Cant beat the look.
Aside from that, my 55 is @40%, windshield too.

Here is 35% from different angles too:

It's definitely a unique look, but something about the car being untinted does give it a sort of elegance as well, a very stock look.

You've got me beat. But we can both agree that 5% is the way to go. Is that legal where you're from as well?

No it is not legal, loll. I could care less man. I have not been pulled over yet knock on wood, but I hardly drive my car. There are SO many cops where I live I am surprised, city cops, county cops, sheriff, state troopers and rangers, loll.

I mostly drive it at night, so maybe that is why, they have not seen how dark it really is

For those of you with tints on the front windshield, how bad is the night time visibility or bad weather?

I had 35% and it sucks at night. Full HID lights and still sucked. I removed it after two weeks. Looks **** though.
I now have 50% on the windshield, and honestly I couldnt drive without it. I love the tint.
I've had 5% on one of my Audis back in the day...ON TOP of 35% legal tint. Lol. That was basically spray paint....inside and out

OP - Where do you live? Thats what matters. I got a ticket here (MA) for my windows being 29% on my evo. $250. I removed it and beat the ticket. Went back next day and tinted the windshield 35% too. Fighting fire with fire lol.

Man, I wish Texas would allow the front windshield to be tinted.

Texas is pretty liberal with tint. I have yet to hear of a state accepting windshield tint..
