Windshield tint or tint strip

Just got my front windows tinted at 20% yesterday since shop didn't have 15. Personally I think it's a little lite. Maybe it will look better once the tint settles I can still see some small looking water bubbles on the passenger side, hopefully those dry out.

Anyway who has there whole windshield or a brow done. What percent did you go with ? How is it driving during the day and at night ? Did it make the side windows look darker?

Pictures would be real helpful

Thanks for the help

Re: Windshield tint or tint strip

Joe (robert palmer) has his windshield tinted. I used to have black vinyl across the top and it really made the inside much darker

Re: Windshield tint or tint strip

i have the bar across the top, done with 15% to match my front windows. I did it more for function, rather than looks. My eyes are sensitive to light and this helps alot when driving, plus i don't have to use my visors anymore.

Re: Windshield tint or tint strip

Oh, and I have no troubles seeing at night. You don't notice the windshield tint when you are inside the vehicle, Just feels like having sunglasses on.

Windshield tint is a mandatory court appearance in Colorado.

Re: Windshield tint or tint strip

The strip across the top is one of the most ghetto things you can do to any auto. Tint the whole thing.

The strip is a tack job. Very tacky. No offense to anyone but this is a thread for opinions.

Re: Windshield tint or tint strip

Plan on getting my tails tinted and with the blacked out rims and emblems and front window tints I already get a lot of attention
