What % tints with oxford green/beige interior?

Just wondering, i want something not too dark (limo) and not too light either. plus i still want to be able to see fine when driving at night. my friend has 5% on his vw and it's completely absurd imo

Anyone got any pictures either with an oxford green exterior, beige interior, or both?

it would really help guide my decision.

Dependent on where in the world you live there are strict laws in most countries on tinting the front windows, so maybe that's why your friend went for 5% so he wont have the hassle of being pulled by the cops and having to remove it on the road side in front of the police if you cant remove it there and then your car is then impounded until its removed. here in the UK they also do random road side checks and if they find out where you got them done the company also gets prosecuted also most BMW's come with a tint which is factory done and is as much as the law allows in that country.

The two rear side windows and back screen you can do what ever % you want.
