Mongoose9400 is an unknown quantity at this point
With Llumar tint they have an Air80 film that rejects almost half the solar heat (~45%), pretty much all UVs (99%), cuts glare, etc. it's more like a dark film without being dark. It's a 78% tint. Another good option to look into.

I would have loved to tint my w/s 5%, but being my DD I didn't want anything to obstruct night, raining, snowy, foggy, etc vision. If its your first time tinting a w/s really give it thought. Though it may look bad ass just make sure it'll be safe for you and not cause to many problems with the local law. The darker side windows will make the light w/s tint look darker too.

Re: Windshield Tint

I had tint on my windshield in my GTO when I bought it. Don't know the tint percentage, but I couldn't see my own headlight beams at night. I thought it was spooky. The car looked good with all the windows blacked out, but I couldn't drive that way at night. I suppose if you have a medical need for it that makes sense. I had the tint removed and bought prescription sunglasses. $300, but they can go with me when I exit the car...

In california no tint is allowed in the front, except a 6 inch band at the top of the windshield, as I recall.

Re: Windshield Tint

Looks good, but stupid IMO. Especially driving at night. Cutting back on glare is one thing but just to look good is another. My front's tint is even hard to see out of at night sometimes. I can't imagine driving over the pass at night with nobody on the road and a tinted front windshield. That, plus I get a slight reflection on my windows from my dash lights, which is distracting.

You can't even tell my front is tinted while driving at night. Totally safe! I even let my mom drive mine while I'm out of town on business and it doesn't bother her at all. She actually likes it a lot, especially in the daytime it cuts down on glare.

From my understanding and asking a similar question, tinting down in the 50% range is when you cause nighttime visibility problems when driving in un-lite areas. Personally I wouldn't do it on my DD, but 78% is fantastic for a DD.
