I'll look into that tomorrow, thanks for the tip.

In a lighted area, no. on the back roads... maybe. in the dark it makes it difficult to see. but looks great on a sunny day!

OK ... I just got off the phone with the window tint guy. He isn't busy enough to stock CTX, he only has the PP (platinum plus) and the ATC. His price is a bit high, but the next closest competitor is 2 more hours away (as it is, this guy is an hour drive from home).
So, I'm goanna go with the ATC with 35% on fronts and 20% in rears / back. I'll post some pictures when she's done.
I just installed the back contoured splash guards today, too.

Good choice. Had the same put on my car when I first got it. Still the same shade as the day it was installed.

Just wondering, have you guys been getting your window tint done at chains or local shops owned by one person? In Tennessee, the legal is 35% all the way around. Obviously, they don't enforce that because they would be stopping everyone. I want some ceramic tint aswell but most places that do that are chains and I'm pretty sure they won't tint my car illegally. Any suggestions?
