I wouldn't exactly call 25% dark. It's kind of hard to tell but the factory glass already cuts light transmission down to 70% due to the built in tinting in the glass itself. You'll have to factor that in when putting another layer of tint on as well - some state inspection shops will actually measure light transmission on the door glass as part of your annual inspection. I run 30% tint on the doors and 15% on the sides and back. Still doesn't seem too dark to me compared to other vehicles I've seen but it does keep me legal.
