    very true, thats why i'm hopin every little bit I can do to fly under the radar will help lol.. but yeah, I'm gonna give the 35% a try and if/when I'm unhappy with it, I may end up going darker. I just cant stand having clear windows right now, gotta have a little something

    It's easy to get the tint off for a pro. I had mine changed from 35% on the rear to 5% and my friend told me he had a steamer that apparently is what they use to take it off and installed the new tine and all the defroster lines work perfect. Since my 35% is nicked I am going from 35% to 20% on the fronts. 35% is a waste on the hatch have to do at least 20% even the 5% is just barly dark enought during the day and easy enought to see out of to back up the wings is a bigger pain. The 5% on the ttops helped alot too.

    Got the windows done yesterday.. I absolutely love it. Yes I wish the sides were darker, but it still looks tastefully done IMO.. 35% sides, 25% rear. I'll post some more (better quality) pics when I get a chance

    Links good a little too light like mine but much better than clear. Should have had them do the ttops in 5% while you were there. I had mine done 5% when they did the hatch and I don't bother with those stupid covers anymore just stuck them back in the plastic bags they came in.from the factory. Nice to be able to have some light from the good but it is now.tolerable even.in the 109 plus Texas heat.

    having the rear hatch darker will make the 35 probably look like 20. It did in my old car.

    Man I can't wait to get the 35th tinted. These cars tinted just look so much meaner.

    They really do look 1000x better. Even with just 35%,it still makes a huge difference.. Granted, these pics are taken in the shade so they're not as dark in the direct sunlight but I still love 'em............ now just time for some stranos
