Hello, I am going to put tints on my 2.0t in white and I was wondering if I should go with 35% or 20% tints on the windows. And also, dark smoke or charchoal black on my taillights?

20% for sure. Its not too dark but does the job...keeps the interior cool and shows the sheet metal off, which is most important. i have 15% all around and 35% on the windshield. Pics in sig.

I went with 20% too and I tinted my tail lights with smoke cause I still wanted some red to show through almost like a crimson color I can post pics later if you want I have ibis white too.

Thanks, did anyone tint their taillights?
I have not (dont think it would look good on avus silver) but from what ive seen, make sure and keep it light. The darks films seem to make them stand out more than without film and taillights arent where we would want focus. A light tint does look nice on ibis.

Haven't had one problem yet in almost 2 years and I live in Jersey where they can be pretty tough. I'm not even supposed to have my front windows tinted but they don't bother me and as for the tail lights I've done this to several vehicles with no problems. Good luck with your mods and the pics might be a little deceiving but the 20% tint you can still see thru the car but can't make out the face 15% is much darker and can barely see thru window to window.
