You're more likely to get air bubbles or peeling if it's on the outside. It's more exposed to the elements.

Had my tint on the inside for almost 2 years. No scratches or no peeling.

Oh are you referring to the plastic convertible window that was on 99-02's? People use a different kind of tint for that, it's a thicker plastic sheet that is fitted on the outside. If you have a glass window as you should having an AP2, I doubt anything's going to scratch either side of the window while folding.

I've had mine for a few years now, still looks as good as the day I got it done. No scratches or wear.

Legal limits are local. Georgia is 30%, which ain't enough.
