i have 70% on my front windshield.. love the heat rejection (i really needed in Alabama while I was there for 6 months in the summer)...

but what i noticed was reduce night visibility. I thought my HIDs were getting weak so I even changed the bulbs.. lol..
.. it was not blinding, but i would go with 90% 3M Crystalline next time, good heat/glare reduction @90%.

btw.. at 70%, no one could tell that my front windshield was tinted (which i appreciated)

I have 35% all around and 20% in the back windshield. 70% in front windshield.

I always used this setup for heat/glare/UV reduction.. You can still see the people in the inside especially during the day. I feel like 20% on the side windows make it a bit harder to see at night..

Oh and one thing i noticed. Our LS's have electronic glare reduction (don't know the official name) on the sideview mirrors. So at night when the headlight hits, the side mirrors auto-dim, and with 35% tint, you dont get that "hint" that another car is in your blind spot by looking at the headlight reflection on the road (hard to explain)... which is somewhat annoying.

I've been trying to figure out how to disable this feature while keeping the rearview mirror dimming intact..

Just "re-tinted" my front windows today cuz i thought they were too light. I had them peel the 35% and make a consistant 15% all the way around the car. Paired with the 50% on the windshield it feels like i'm driving from my own living room.

Default Finally got a nice enough day to show off the tint! :D

Only problem is the crappy phone pic. . .

15% all over with 50% on the windshield. (sunroof open for driving through town and keeping the cops happy)

Had the 35 put on sides and back. no problem seeing out at night and does help with the heat in the car and glare. Hqve a rainbow effect with polarized sunglasses but get used to it. Would be nice to have a bit darker but NC only allows 35 as max. Spending the month in Fl so is a good test to see how it helps.

13% all around. The light interior makes it not dark at all. Now that the sides and rear are done, I found myself wanting the windshield done.

I'm going to try this out for a bit, then if I want darker May double up on the 13%.
Do you have any issues driving at night with the windshield done? I drove in a friends car who had his sides and front done and we had to put down the windows at night. Lol.
