    Has anyone tinted with the gold-colored solar tint you see on a lot of buildings? Thinking about doing it to mine. Not really because I live where it is super sunny, but it would just distinguish my car a little more and possibly reduce inside temperatures during the summer.

    Anyone having issues with ghosting in the rear view mirror? I just got mines tinted about 2.5 weeks ago and I'm experiencing light refraction problems at night.

    Reflectivity is proportional to "emissivity" -- i.e., not only will a shiny surface reflect heat, it will emit less heat.

    Of course, I don't recall New Hampshire having anything like the climate of Death Valley, but maybe gold windows will be the next trend. Probably will look great during peak foliage season in October.

    Send along a picture.

    If you look carefully, each 'ripple' you see is actually on the defroster lead. The inside of the window is not flat so the window tinting has to follow the contour around each lead...hence the ghosting

    In Texas, we have Executive Motor Sports which can do limo on the back windows(Back Door and Glass) and state legal on front windows for $185 with a lifetime Warranty. I had it done on my previous Prius, but this one came with tinted windows so I am happy with that.
