What type of tint was used?

I am getting my car tinted tomorrow. SunTek Carbon.

Thinking about 35% front and 20% rear to stay out of trouble.

I have the light gray interior on Sparkling Graphite Metallic paint. So part of me wants to do 20% all around, and just open sunshade when I'm near cops.

Just got SunTex CPX with 35% all around.

I have beige interior. I actually think it looks more classier if its not too dark. I think my tastes are changing as I get older...

I got 35 on the front 18 in the back. Some days i like the 35, others i like the 18 more.

Overall im satisfied, but i think 18 on the grey interior is just right.

I love how it has a small color to it like factory tint.

I want to do snother light layer on the 35 to bring it to like 26 if i can.

The guy i went to didnt have Suntek carbon 25 in stock.

I have 20% just on the back window and 35% all around on the others. This makes the fronts look darker. I think its the way to go. This is in an underground parking garage so looks darker as well.

The second pic of outside to give you a better idea.
