I have no idea about the regs in Victoria, but in NSW the tinting limit is 35%. Anything less (blacker) than this and your car is illegally modified, and thus any insurance is void.

I was of the impression you can have the rear windows in a wagon as black as you want.

In NSW only vans and utes can have dark tint on rear windows as these are designed as commercial vehicles and as such could have the view through these windows obscured by the load.
