Tints for white 330ci w/beige leather

I already made an appointment for this sat. to put tints on my car but am not sure which percentage I should get. I'm thinking between the 35% and the 50%. I know that the %0% is very light but I think i would like that, plus since its a white car, it will look dark. The only thing that people are telling me is that with the beige leather, the tints will look lighter so I should get the 35%. Honestly I don't mind if it looks light because I still want people to see me but i just don't want it to look like I did nothing at all. Any body put either 35% or 50% tints oon their car and have pictures? Any comments in general will be gladly appreciated too.

its the other way around i think, isnt 0 complete black? the lower the number the darker the tint. i think the way they grade it is by the amount of light that passes, so 0% means no light passes.

on a white car id go with 40% its dark enough to do its job , but lgiht enough not to contrast too much

I have 45% on mine, but I have a black interior, it looks dark enough without looking Secret Service. Lower the number, the darker the tint. Also, most people don't follow them, but most states have regulations stipulating how dark you can go. Also too, a metallized tint can really screw up your radio reception.

Well I'm guessing then i should go with the 35% instead of the 50%...really i don't want anything too dark and just want something to look nice but also for people to be able to see me.
