However, we had two of the same car before. Both with leather. One with 35% tint and one without. I can say without a doubt that the tinted car was enormously better regarding keeping the heat down. Tint won't prevent the sun from coming through the windshield so you may be better if with some sort of shade there to prevent the seats from getting too hot.
Direct from the Wife: "Unless I'm parked with my windshield directly in the sun, it never gets as hot as it used to before the tint."
I already use a sun-shield for the front windshield, helps a little. Thanks for the insight, I'll be doing a tint in the next few weeks.
