i have a nhb w/ 5% tint and i get nothing but compliments. it looks sick and clean. but thats my opinion, just watch out for cops unless you live in a state where its legal.

Man I have 20% and its so nice. The color of the tint is actually called Blackhawk! You should check it out. Anyways, cops won't bother you as much, if any, and it looks really nice. So I say 20%

5% is a hassle, just got a ticket for it. Looks clean don't get me wrong but you always have to worry about cops. I dunno just my opinion, i'm getting my tint redone probably go with 20-35%

I would say 6% or 13% solargard all the way around. Unless you live in CA then I wouldn't chance it or if your state doesn't allow window tint on the front windows. I get hassled more for front plates then I do window tint here. But I would be lieing if my dark tint and a civic isn't the reason I get pulled over a lot considering I never speed.
Yeah after getting pulled over 3 times for no front plate and even with it in the window and a $94 plate fine I have it on now LOL.
