2019 TLX with Madico Window Films 35% tint. Chose 35% because I looked at a number of reviews and understand that 20% caused challenges to night time viewing. I also didn't want too attract police attention for being overtly dark. I liked the 35% on my 2008 TL so I did the same here. Just right for me. Before and after photos are at approximately the same time of day.

I have 18% on my truck, and will never go that dark again. The TLX is 25%, and is much easier to see through at night. 35‰ on the wife's Jeep isn't noticeably different.

Curious: You indicate that 35% isn't noticeably different. Would that be a difference from 'no tint' or 'not noticeably different from 25%' ? Thanks

I'm want to get 20% on the rear and 35% on front doors. I'm not sure if I want 20% on the rear doors or match them with the fronts at 35%. Thoughts?

On my first "real" car, I went with a darker tint (20% or 25%?) and I hated the night time visibility out of the car. Since then, I've went with 35% tint and never felt that I needed darker. At some point, there is diminishing returns in terms of heat reduction and it's about looks and visibility out of the car. I put more value on a balance of the two rather than emphasizing the "black" window look. To each their own of course.

I definitely value nighttime visibility which is why I'm sticking with 35% on the fronts. I want to keep 20% rear for those lifted trucks that don't readjust their headlights and pull up as close to your bumper as they can at redkights. I still have my camera for backing up and parking.

I was mainly consider 20% back doors to help the fronts look lighter as in Ohio fronts can only be 50% legally.

I used to have a Civic that was 35% sides and 20% rear and I didn't hate it.

Anyone else near Columbus Ohio? I've narrowed my choices to Quality window tint and Mr tint and need to make a decision.

I find that 35% works quite well. I understand some like it darker on the back window. If you put 20% on the rear doors, you may have an issue with seeing out at night....checking your blind spot. Read what people say on line out side of the TLX forum. Some indicate they drive with their windows down at night.

In Columbus Ohio looking into window tint. Most sites say Ohio has no medical exemption but I found this. Chapter 4501-41 - Ohio Administrative Code | Ohio Laws

Having trouble finding an optometrist willing to write me an affadavit though, contacted 2 that I've seen and are aware of my condition (keratoconus). They both declined stating they don't know enough about it to issue me the letter.

Anyone have any info that might help me or a doctor they've seen. I know chances of a ticket are low but I'd rather be safe than sorry.
