depending on the local laws tinting the windshield is not legal. might want to check that first.

Thumbs up Windows are now tinted!

Windows are now tinted, windshield 55% and the rest 25%, and yes it is against the law in Florida thats why I went light on the front and dark on the rest.
The tints are carbon based and the windshield tint does not interrupt any sensors, also guaranteed for life.
I am pleased, it looks like a different car

The tint goes around the sensor. They will lay the tint on the outside and cut where they need to then peel off the plastic to expose the glue. So your sensors should be fine when it comes to the wipers. As far as the headlights that's a different story but you should be fine as well.
