yxan,
post some pics if you can.

I think I'll stick with a smoke tint. I would like to have it dark enough so that people might be more deterred from messing with the car..but I guess once you see the brembos..there is no hiding it.. :(

Alright, I gotcha now. I'm sure you can find it somewhere...just not sure where.

Personally, I'd like a tint to do some security and cooling work instead of just changing the color of the glass.....

Generally speaking of course, glass by nature tends to filter out quite a bit of the harmful UV rays, as much as 80 percent. automotive glass filters out even more. all tinting really does is help keep the car cool, IMO :)

when i get an sti in getting 100% limo tints front and back
i live in IL, and you can have tints like that if u have a medical reason
mine, i have "sensitive eyes", so ill jus go to the eye doctor and ask him if he'll give my a doctors note, so when i get pulled over all the time, ill jus hand the officer my note ^_^
not sure if i can jus go to eye doctor and get note or if i have to go to the dmv or something -_-a

Uh.....last time I checked, 100% means no light transmission, which means you might as well just tell Subaru to keep the glass and sheet metal over the holes.

:roll:

I'm feeling ya on that blue AMG tint as well - just think it looks super smooth. (can you imagine it with our blue interior too?). When I had my VW tinted about a year ago I inquired about that type tint and was told from a few sources that it was a UV film that got sandwiched in between two pieces of glass - don't know if that's accurate but thought I'd add my (minimal) knowledge. If anyone hears anything different please advise!

We'll be counting the days till you say you hit something in the middle of the night while driving. Don't be surprised when it happens.

IMO, if you're eyes are that 'sensitive', I'd tell you to keep your butt inside all day.

I'm afraid I have to echo CloneGts' comment on this particular issue. I have 35% metallic in my present ride and it's plenty dark, especially at night. There was one time I was reversing out of a dark parking spot at night and nearly bumped someone - I felt horrible for throwing that kinda scare at somebody! A friend of mine has the 20% (limo) and at night you can't see a darned thing unless the lights are shining AT you. Now I wear contacts so am a little more sensitive, but IMHO 20% is too dark...especially with a car like this where you'll probably be pushing it a bit. Good luck either way though!

Just made some calls and did some "googling" and came up with some fairly interesting info. Apparently Llumar makes the highest quality (and most expensive) tint available. They have over 3000 installers nationwide as well as a computer template program that is VERY comprehensive. All of their tints block 99% of UV light and are available in over 40 diff't shades. Now on to that sexy Benz blue....this is made by a company called Sun-Tek. I think the blue would look amazing on a silver STi....but not so hot on my JBP on order. Here's the thing...in CT it is illegal to have tint on the front window....I BELIEVE because the blue blocks only UV and doesn't diminish visibility at all it's o.k. (or else MB's would be getting pulled for it, right?). I'm going with a Llumar shade all the way around and the UV Sun-Tek blue on my windshield. Thought some of you may care to know this.....just put a call in to Sun-Tek - the blue is called "High Performance 50 Blue" and IS what we see on all MB's and IS o.k. for front windshield use.
