dark tint on my sedan. Yes or No

I have been contemplating doing some dark tint to my sedan for a while now. Being my first Benz I'm doubting a bit. All my previous cars had 35% tint all round BUT for the Benz I'm thinking of a 20% for the rear passenger windows and rear screen. The front door windows I'm thinking of a 50% to have the look of a factory 'limo' finish. Any thoughts?

My car is white as well, w210 elegance (original greenish tint)

Do whatever you like to the rear and backseat passenger windows.
Limit tinting of the windshield to the upper band.
Don't tint the front seat side windows at all.

Just curious, why do you want a "Limo look" when you aren't the one riding in the back seat?

Summer this side gets really hot and unbearable at times, we talking about average of 30 to 40 degrees Celsius. I did a trip just over the weekend and covered a 1000 km, the aircon just works too hard in that heat.

My daughter also happens to have a very sensitive skin and she is in the rear seat always.

Tint preference is a personal opinion. I think what you have proposed would look nice. Any legal issues to consider where you live? If you are looking for the best in heat/sun rejection, you might want to consider ceramic films.
