I want to tint mine, but basically to cover my compustar alarm receiver and to get the sun out of my eyes...

The only reason I haven't done it is because I don't really want to have to peel the receiver and my LED light off my windshield now and then find out it won't stick well anymore...

I'll probably eventually do it though.

my car came off the dealer with everything tinted except for the front. car is black though so i think i'm going to end up getting the top tinted. i'd like to match the kind of light tint they did on the windows but the guy at the dealer had no idea what level of tint it was he kept calling it 'smoke tint'.
