Tinting a Black S550(W220)

I just picked up a Black on Black S550 and am in hot and humid Houston. Texas state law requires 25% opacity for the driver and passenger front windows, but allows full black out on the rear side windows and rear window if the vehicle is equipped with side mirrors(a law enforcement thing I suppose)

My question is how would this look with the blacked out rear windows but some transparency for the front two windows?

Opinions requested please.

Here's a link to an older post about how I did my tint job to look dark but remain "presentable" to law enforcement, etc.
