I used the original (50%-80%), sorry I didn't mention that. I purchased these a year or two ago when the original was the only offering. The sheet includes a variety of sizes and shapes. I used the 3/4" dot.

As far as certain colors of cars becoming harder to see as it gets dark, I notice my silver car at dusk or dawn becomes almost invisible once you get about 30 yards or so from it... especially if theres a little dew in the air..
I hadn't even considered the impact on temp control. I'll have to see if I notice a difference. The nice thing about this mod is it's so easy to undo.
