Took the xiT in today to have tint put on (35%). Now two days of no windows down and hope all the little residual water pockets dry up with no complications.:)

Estimated HP gain ~ 15:bigpimp:

This is actually the only thing my wife has ok'ed:confused:

I didn't tell the guy to do the fronts (shhh they are not 100% legal here in PA) but he comped them and said he didn't think I'd have any problems since it's a wagon, not too dark in appearance, yada yada yada.......If questioned he'll remove FOC:)

Looks good! At night, I'm sure it's very difficult to see in the car, especially if the car is not parked under any streetlights. :thumbup:
Thanks for the comment.:p

Most nights it will be tucked safe away in my garage but when out on the town that will be a good thing:thumbup:

Looks great. Now all you need is an M-technik front bumper, and some style 42 wheels then she'd be almost as pretty as she would be if she had a real trunk.:lmao:
Just kidding, it does look good.

It must be an optical illusion since your car is darker:dunno:

I had to wait 3 weeks for the guy to have an open time:( I thought about going 20% in the back but my instinct and the installer's opinion kept it at 35.

My tint is 20% on all windows plus the black interior makes it look even darker.

I had a white car with beige interior and with the 20% tint it looked lighter . . .

Next time around I am going to go with 35% all around . . . I've had the gangster 20% look on all my cars since the late 80's and I'm getting a little tired of it.

Do you have the privacy shade and vertical net that separates the cargo area? Ever use it?

I use the shade regularly but have only tested the net. I've only loaded the back up with more than golf clubs a couple of times.

The tint looks great on yours:thumbup:

For the summer I would like the 20 but I thought 35 would serve as a better year round use:dunno:

Looks good Phil.

Why don't they make between 20 and 35?!?!?!

I had 20 all around on my 93 Probe for 2 weeks, then some red headed pencild... (lets not go there) cop pulled me over getting up onto the highway leaving hummelstown......

"Uhh son do you know that your license plate has a dark cover on it" I said yes office I put it there. "Well thats illegal, because I can't read your license plate number" Which was perfectly clean and visible because I don't leave my cars dirty (ever).

Well with a screwdriver he provided I removed the cover...and then he goes, "Remove that tint too by the next time I see you or I'll make you tear it off right in front of me"

Some cops need to get a life...... Im far from a gangster or willing to run from the cops so they don't see my license plate number.....

Yea I do, so hopefully he will still get me one.... but this time I got 35 percent on mine... it looks dark maybe because I have black interior.. I have had 5% before..its to black... I wish I got 20%, but I didnt :(
