    I had Suntek 35% Carbon Black put on all the windows except the lower rear window and the windshield.

    Looks nice! Wish people would behave in California so we could do darker tints on the front window. It looks a bit goofy to have 70% tint on the front windows and 30% on the rears.

    Notice any temp differences in the car after tinting the windows?

    Huge difference for me here in Texas. I went with ceramic over the carbon. I figure $1 per day for 1 year to pay off. Did exactly the same as you and went with the same tint all around. Only problem now is the windshield letting all that hot sun in.

    Looks great, I personally have 18% all around excluding the windshield. I love it - my Prius is invisible to law enforcement.

    I have mine at 35% here in Maryland and it makes a huge difference here during the summer. Love your tint and it looks just like my little (oops) Prius.

    I just got Suntek Carbon XP done on my. CXP18 16%VLT in the back and CXP45 40% VLT in the front. It's a little too dark for the front. The shop only carry those 2 shades for the XP.
