Do you have any other pics that show your windows? I was thinking about going 30% when I get tint and wanted to see what yours looks like.

Re: 2008 World Rally Blue STI - keepin' it simple

Robotvoice: I'll take some pictures over the weekend but 30% is a perfect balance between blocking out UV and not looking too illegal!

RMG: I got the lip 6 months ago for $230 shipped but now they are going for $160 shipped on ebay.

subydude: Thanks! Pleasure doing business with you guys :D
