    Got it done this morning 20% all around on my BP.

    pretty dark as usual (all my cars were 20%) and blocks sun lights & heat really well.

    3M flim I paid 220 @ this place where many celebrities go. I met Brandy's brother I forgot his name there this morning lol

    Went to Griffith Park to take some pictures.
    i will post up some later

    :)Appears to be the angle. Anything darker than 20% would be opaque.

    Since I take trips several times a year, going through other states, I'm afraid to get a dark tint since it may not be legal in those states. Don't want to get a ticket....

    I have 15% 3M all around (minus windshield) and it looks way too light - I suspect it's due to the light coming through the massive windshield. Thinking about having it all redone with 5%.

    LOL, there are people around with tinted windshields, but I'm not quite that brazen.

    Ceramic tints are costly. I think just front alone I was quoted $150.. I was impressed how light it was.. and if it performs as advertised... wow..

    I just did the tint on my 13 Prius with 5% all around I still think its too light. The windshield is huge and allows a lot of light in.
