Cool 15% tint too dark for me

I recently got my car done 15% all around. The main reason I got the tint is to reduce the heat on my black car(it's hot down here!). The car looks awsome and the guy did a hell of a job. The only problem is, the front windows are a little too dark at night and during the day, I'm driving around in a cave. I could probobly live with it, but it's more annoying than anything else. My plan is to get the front windows redone lighter and leave the back alone. They only have 20% and 35% down here and I can't decide between the two. 20% still looks too dark for nightime drives and 35% looks too light to make a difference in the day. Annyone have any experience with these two?

I have 15% all around on my car and have no problem with it at all. It does help with the heat too. I had 20% on my old s10 it was still dark but not as much as the 15%, of the two I would go 20%, 35% is too light for me, but thats just me. Jen

I have 35% the legal limit here in Ma. I must say that during the day its hardly noticeable, I really wish I could have gone darker. So in my opinion go for the 20% tint.

I have 20% all around, definately wouldn't go lighter. Only problems at night would have to be trying to back up into a spot. For situations like that you would just have to roll down your window and peek out.

15% for me and I've only been stopped once by a trooper in a Z28! He let me go with a warning. That's been a couple years ago and no problems since. Night time can be tricky, but I don't even notice it anymore...
