Quick question , I know the darkest legal tint in SA is 35% but what are the implications if you go over that?

Provided that its on your side windows ONLY and its not entirely blacked out I don't think even traffic cops will give you issues.

Also how dark is 35%? , are there any charts that I can compare too?
Interesting question. The best way to see is to goto a place that tints, and look around. Most cars, especially non-entry level cars come with factory tints, so those compounded onto 35%s can be fairly dark. From a personal preference, I would not recommend going darker, its actually a danger at night as it does become hard to see out of. Aesthetically, 35% is also quite nice, as it doesnt look wannabe gangster black.
