Not for cosmetics but purely for other benefits (heat, UV protection, etc) 35% seems to be the magic number. Lighter lose a lot of that stuff, darker minimal additional benefit of any.

I am a fan of 20%. Looks great and you can still see out of it at night.

Huperoptic ceramic 50% are the way to go
They look a outstanding, classy and reject 50% of the heat
Don't mind the rear windows
Shades are up
No reflection at night
They are on the pricey side around $400 for the whole car

I did 3M Crystalline 90 on the windshield and love the radiant heat reduction. You can't see the difference, no darker and the HUD works the same.
