I have never bought window tint before, but I need some.
I want really dark quality window tint for my BMW 528.
How does the grade work? I can buy 35% 20% 5% or 1%, is 1% the darkest? And whats the legal limit? I don't want to cops busting me on every corner either.

I don't know about other places, but here in CA, to my knowledge, you can tint window as dark as you like provided that 1) you don't put tint on either front drivers or passengers side window and 2) you don't tint the windshield.

Matt writes with wisdom.
Peace officers with whom I am acquainted tell me that, if the front door windows are tinted darkly enough to impede ready vision of the driver and passenger, they are much more likely to require the occupants to step from the vehicle in a "hands-up" controlled scenario.
The driver of a car is not supposed to be concealed from the outside, regardless of of "style."
