with a dark interior and no light shining through you shouldnt be able to see through 20 it would be even hard to see through 35
Oops, should have phrased it better, but it was good to know
I meant when u are driving, can u see through your rear mirror, and look through the windows to the side mirrors w/ 20%?

you will see cars behind you cause they will have there lights on but as far as backing up goes and stuff yes it is a little tougher

This is 15%. It is called "Cool Chrome." It is a really good tint job.

Dude just go get 15-20's you wont be dissapointed
Prob is i want light. I saw an RSX at the Auto Show in Chicago and it had the tint color that i wanted. I think the dealership said it was like 10%.
I like a very light tight not too dark, but i also want to see dark just in case.

I am a noob when it comes to tints.....I thought 10% meant 10% of the window is tinted (10% darkness).

10% means 10% light gets thru = dark. i was looking in the 20% area for all 5 windows.
