I don't understand how the % works. The car I have tinted (not the MB) is painted black and I went as dark as the law allows with a darkish color. I think it's a dark gray and should look good on your Benz.

Here's a link to my pics on the W202 photo sticky. If you like the tint grade there is more info further down that page in a response I posted to someone's questions about the tint. Good luck, great looking car!

It is about 20 years too late to tint the widows on that car.

I'm planning on going with Huper Optik tint on my car. Expensive, but very good.

Talk to the guy running the tint shop you will be going to. He should be able to give you the best advice.
