    Question What % tint you guys have??

    I have an apointment tomorrow to get tints on my Black MK4 Jetta. I cannot decide if I should go 20% maybe 35%.. All way around v.s. front and back.

    I have been trying to find pictures what it will look like on black. Can you post pics with your percentage!!

    Less is more.....IMHO. I have black too, and I chose not to tint on black. If it were any other color, then i'd tint, but again lite all around the same. Maintain continuity. However, feel free to do what makes you happy.


    I've been staring at this for months debating to tint or not, since last year...

    They really dont! 35% is just a light smoke all around its no where near dark/black


    20% all around
    VAGKRAFT - Dead President - Hip Hop --> 141.0 dB
    Jet plane (near) --> 140dB
    WF15 - Master P - Them Jean --> 135.9 dB
    Jet plane (from 100 feet away) --> 135.0dB
    Threshold of pain --> 125 dB

    haha thanks for making me even more confused than before. If I get there and the 35% looks even a little bit too light I will more than likely go with 20%

    Thanks to everyone that helped me out

    Go Glass in Waterloo. $230. It may be a bit more for anyone else. The VP and general manager used to be my company's client, so he hooked me up.

    It might be tough seeing out at night.........even if you don't get a ticket....it's gonna be a pain getting pulled over and playing 20 questions, YMMV. 20 looks like 15 on a black car...and 15 looks like 10 (subjective I know).

    I had my tint done in Scarborough. I forget the name of the place, but it's the same place Don Valley VW uses to tint their cars. BTW, Fishbowl status is pretty cool.
