Re: Windshield Tint

Since I got my windshield tinted, everything at night it more clear and there's no burryness when looking at traffic lights and with oncoming traffic, and it helps with the sun too.

Yeah, dont hit one at night. It will be your fault if the windshield tint is illegal.

Re: Windshield Tint

Like I said guys 50% isnt noticeable. Anything darker then you are asking for trouble.

And kennzz05, we get it, you dont like windshield tint. lol

Mongoose9400 is an unknown quantity at this point
I run a 78% film on my windshield. Plenty of pros for having it. No cons IMO. Night time vision is almost the same as not having tint. Here is a comparison. 5% on all windows, 78% w/s.

Re: Windshield Tint

^^^I saw this in person. Others have 40% on their windshield as well. But 50% is then max that I will do.

copley2596 is a splendid one to behold
Been wanting to do this for awhile. I have the six inch 5% strip already and was wondering what some of you guys have paid to do the whole windshield. I was quoted $175 today to do 50% and felt that was pretty high. What do you guys think?

You may not get it, but for a rare few of us, windshield tint is actually medically necessary. Tint on only the sides would be useless to me if the sun was still blaring through my windshield. And yes mine is 100% legal, as per the st of FL exemption cert in my glove box.

I see pedestrians better without the sun in my eyes making them invisible.

Mines 50% also and the only time you notice is when you get in a car without tint....then you wonder why it's not on everyones car. It should be standard in S FL.

Local shop that hubs uses to do cars where he works charges 150 for the whole windshield. You could probably negotiate a better deal, we got a great price but thats because they like me.LOL!

I have 5% all around and 40% over my whole windshield. It reduces oncoming headlight glare, sun glare, and cabin heat. The 40% is negligible from the inside.

Really depends on driver vision. If I wore glasses, I wouldn't have windshield tint.

My eyes are super sensitive to light. Headlights sometimes cause me actual pain. The reduced glare helps so much. Makes it much easier for my eyes to adjust.
