    Someone on this forum recommended Auto Mall Tint Specialist in Fremont, CA for tinting and I just went there to have it done. He makes weekend appointments so it was very convenient to go on a Sunday. He did a wonderful job. The brand is Suntek HP and on the rear window and the side windows behind the rear doors I did 20%. On the rear passenger doors I did 30% and on the front two doors and the little triangle windows I did 35%. I had intended to do 50% there but the difference was slight and I thought it would look better. I realize these are illegal but you can see into the car pretty easy and I doubt many Prii are used as gangster getaway cars so I think I will be pretty safe from the cops.
    He did a wonderful job for $300 cash out the door. $320 if you insist on paying with a credit card. It has a lifetime guarantee and the car looks like a different car. It looks wonderful and I am very happy with it.
    I would highly recommend him.

    I have a similar setup, it looks great!

    20% rear, 32% front, 50% windshield....$200 out the door... lifetime guarantee

    50% on the windshield makes it look like you did 20% in the front when you look in.

    I thought the windshield couldn't be tinted, except for the top 6"?
