    Not sure 100% as I bought the car with them on but the car before this one had 17% charcoal black. These ones seem to also be charcoal black but are way darker. I'm gonna guess 10-12%, not Quite limo but close.

    From what I recall, HTA says you cannot have any tint in the front driver/passenger but anything goes for the rears. This is why there are no factory tints on the front driver/passenger in any SUV or Minivan.

    Just went to 20%s all around. No hassles from the locals yet... I agree with Tokic_o. Makes it interesting reversing. Seriously considering reverse light upgrades!

    Also have 20% tints all around. I won't lie...it is really dark at night, and friends in the car always hold on for dear life because they're not used to it but after a while you get accustomed to the dark and I've never had an issue *knock on wood*

    thanks for this pic, really helped me with my decision since i have the same colour. 35% all around looks great, but I'm thinking of doing 35% on the side 4 and 23% at the back

    I went with 15% all around. I've been beside cops at lights and no hassles *knocks on wood*. Then again I'm in Calgary and a lot of people go with 5%

    i have 23% on front windows and 17% on the rear glass and windshield. It looks pretty good actually and allows for a little more visibility from drivers side. If your gonna go with too different shades avoid getting a big difference between front and rear as it will look wierd.

    100%

    Planning to go with 35% front, and 20% rear when I get the time/liquid capital to have it done (probably June). I think it'd look crazy mixed with smoked tails and plasti-dipped emblems.
    Got a variety of OEM Mazda 3 parts that need to go, thread coming soon, PM me for details!

    Pics or it didn't happen

    Where'd you get the 30% done? I've been going back and forth trying to decide between 35 and 23 (or combo)

    Did 23% all around @ AudioHeaven no complaints was fairly well done, got stopped by the cops for a R.I.D.E check spot 2 days later and my tint was not an issue. Its kinda hard to see in streets without adequate street lights though.

    I'm just unsure when can I wash my car including the windows ? after 3 or 5 days from the tint job ?

    Tints are on the inner side of the windows, so as long as you're only doing an exterior wash, you should be able to do it whenever you like.

    also make sure to not wash the interior side of the windows (with the tint on it) with anything containing ammonia in it like Windex. i'm assuming Audio Heaven would have told you this.
