Visor Tint Pictures

I am considering doing a visor tint on my windshield when I get it replaced.

does anyone have this on their 6er and can you post a picture? I'm really interested in seeing how it looks on stratus paint.

I am assuming you are referring to a tint strip, located at the top of the windshield like so:

to those of you that have this tint, what is your feelings about it after loving with it?

would you do it again if you had to get a new windshield?

what does the installation look like from the inside? is there any weird cutouts around the mirror and rain sensor?

I love it. I initially did it to cover my hardwired V1 from sight and the sun, however I would also do it again simply because I enjoy the extra coverage it gives me, and in states where it is illegal to tint the entire windshield, a tint strip is acceptable.

Also, as far as the cut - I considering going all the way to the edge of the rear view mount, however inside of the car I felt like it covered too much, so I went about halfway.

As you see with BADRIDES' M6 vert, he went the whole way so it is a clean bar at the top.

Additionally, as far as the rain sensor goes, it should not interfere with it, as it should not cover it at all, merely be cut on both sides to meet the mount on the windshield.

badrides,

how do you like the tint that low? sitting in the car it looks like it will take up a third of the windshield.

could you snap a quick picture from the drivers perspective?

My whole winshield is tinted and really black. Not by me but the previous owner. However I would do, even if illeagle, the whole windshield in the lightest tint there is. You cannot even tell from the inside it is tinted and 99% of cops can't tell either.

When I get time I am removing mine and going lighter

I considered that, but I don't think it is as effective as a 5% strip at blocking the sun.

Is this the only type of tint available? that extremely strong black solid strip?

There is no way to do a fading-out tint? So it starts off dark and fades to light, in a strip? Looks *SO MUCH BETTER* than these black lines across the top of the glass.
