    tinting is darker in the rear windows than in the front (can't remember off the top of my head the % but i have it written down somewhere if you need it). this picture was taken just before sunset, the tint usually looks a lot darker during the daytime.

    Thanks Yorks , Looks Great even like the shark fin ant. Do you think it was 20% in rear and 35 % in front?

    The background looks very nice too.
    It has been several years since in San Fran had to take the wife to the Art Museum.

    Ok others post yours too

    thanks! just looked up the numbers--it's actually 18% rear and 30% front. so you were really close.

    we took the prius cross-country from maine back home to san francisco. we actually stopped in missouri to go up the arch:

    well, no arch in the picture but that was in the parking lot!

    The wife is from Maine ( Bangor) and I was from MO. (St.Louis) we meet years back in Arizona and got married at Sqaw Peak Park in Phx. AZ. We did the coast to coast trips but in a 32' Motor home the real gas guzzler.
    I wish they had a plug in conversion for the motorhome it stays parked alot now at 300.00 to fill up and 6-8 mpg it's crazy.

    again your car looks great and the background not as good this time :) only because I've seen it most my life.

    Mine is Salsa Red but depending on lighting and who's camara they are close enough in color. :)

    I'm sorry I don't remember which % tint is where but the rear windows are VERY dark and the front sides are basically CA. legal so they are lightly tinted but enough to not make too bad of a contrast from front to rear.

    I went out and got a better shot of the car today. The front windows are definately noticable when the sun hits them directly but normally it's not such a drastic difference.

    maine was really pretty. missouri not so much--no offense! the arch was fun though, and so was seeing the mississippi for the first time.

    i can't imagine driving cross-country at 6-8 mpg! i normally have a yakima roof rack on my prius but i took it off for the cross-country trip because it sapped 3-5 mpg from my mileage--nearly as much as you were getting, total! at least you had a bathroom though--we had to stop frequently because my girlfriend has a small bladder!

    so have you decided on tinting yours and if so, at what %?

    I hear ya on the Missouri views hahah I understand I feel the same way. Southern Missouri is more picturesque along with more streams and rivers you can do a float trip on. I am sure we will move back to Arizona or Gulf coast of Texas.

    We are doing the tint at 35% all around

    the built in bathroom is a plus :) no more looking for trees on the side of highways

    Anyone tinted a black or a white Prius? I think that would look badass. Would you mind posting your pics here?

    I would do a search and if you don't find any threads then post up a new thread and see if you get any takers. :)

    I'm guessing the other red Prii with tinted windows just don't have pics. Ohh, IMO if you get the tiny windows by the dashboard tinted, do them dark like the back window. You rarely look out of them anyway and as you can see in my pic, they look kinda funny with just light tint.
