On the website it said gunsmoke allowed 90% of light thru, seemed to be the lightest smoke available for the pre-cut kits? We'll see how it looks soon, the package i thought was my tails turned out to be something else, not car related. should be here any day now

The window tint's getting done (is already done) over in Santa Cruz, somewhere. I didnt go into too much detail with the dealer, i'll ask the name of the shop tomorrow when i get the car. I already got my 1-way car rental setup so i can go get it tomorrow. Didnt feel like carrying a V-limited lip on the VTA light rail & bus

FWIW; here's a comparison, tint vs. smoke

The dealer told me newly shipped STI's have more rear fender protection, there is now film on both the door and the wheel arch behind the door, which wraps the edge where folks were reporting a lot of chips. This pic tries to show that...
but still nothing above the rocker panel...
