x2 those look super dark for 35%. What do you have on the rear? Dark tint on the rear would make the side windows look darker too.

Ahh that would definitely add to the darkness factor on those front windows. Looks good!

I have a large roll of 2.5% tint laying around if you're feeling a little crazy...

Just a little too dark?

I used the tint on some bedroom windows so I can walk around naked without any fear... lol j/k. I had some blinds that were needing replacement so I figured why not just tint the windows instead, originally I tried a lighter shade of tint but it was way too bright. So I got the 2.5% and actually it's a lot brighter than you would think since the windows are so much larger than car windows and thus allow in a lot more light. It doesn't hinder my ability to see outside at all, except at night.

I really like it though... it provides more of an open atmosphere.

Edit: Found this picture showing a good comparison:
