Driving/vision doesn't feel impaired at all. i feel like i could have gone darker, even at night i hardly notice it. the side and rear windows are dark and wouldn't want to go any darker on them. with rear shades up it is like a cave in the back. i'll upload a few pics from inside and outside that will hopefully give you an idea. i have it on other cars and helps cut down heat in summer and UV rays
a lot of pics but you will see from outside, the appearance changes in every lighting condition

taken at almost 7 pm. just before sunset

three way comparison. no tint, 5% side window, 55% windshield

also around dusk no direct light, door window/windshield

direct light minus the 'creepy tree' shadow

same angle dusk

I can't see anyone inside the car. That may be a problem in my state CA. I currently have 25% on the windows, 75% in the rear. I would do 10% on the windshield. Good to know there is no vision problem in the windshield when you are inside look out.

Thanks LGARCIA. i've been very happy with it. it doesn't appear much more than the factory tinting on windshield from inside but definitely give more reflection and mystery from outside especially in lower light situations

that's the way she likes it. doesn't want to be seen. she acts like the paparazzi is after her or something

it's not technically legal here

either but i generally behave myself and PD hasn't ever hassled me about it, knock on wood. i've got 80% on my other vehicles and it does seem to cut down on heat passing through windshield into the cabin

Panamer_lou do you think front windshield 5% is too light? I park my car outside the driveway, house in the bay area is 1 1/2 parking. All of our porsches are parking on the driveway. Summer can be 100 here for few days. We park in the garage at work. Is your car Matte black? Nice ...

Thank you panamera_lou. I just looked it up. I think 50% in front windshield or higher less than 80%. You are right 5% i will not be able to see ... LOL ... I am thinking matte black wrapper in the front bumper. My car is 2016 black metallic. I like low maintenance outside LOL ...

I dont think there is a state in USA that allows windshield darkening. When being pulled over, opening up the sun roof is a MUST. Trust me, dont ask how I know. If you open the sun roof (hope it does not rain that rainy day), you wont be able to tell windshield is darkened.

I like the matte black finish, very crisp. Is it whole car wrap? Will it be easy to remove when you need to?
