Go with 3M. I have the stripe on mine but its a different year and I like it keeps the sun out my eyes. I have a couple friends that have their windshield tinted and looks awesome. If I were you I would do the whole windshield

Well I went with 5%. For looks and it's hot out here. But I would really go 20 to 15% and get the tint stripe on the windshield. If you get 5% and the windshield you won't see very well at all.

I did just a small strip in the front. Helps enough with the sun.

Llumar is the best! 3m is awful.. I've worked at a tint/accessory shop for 5 1/2 years.. The ONLY good thing about 3M is that when you have to remove(and believe me you will) it takes the glue with it and doesn't have to be scraped. My shop has used ALL films and we recommend llumar. We've been in business since 93 commercial, residential, and auto. so we've experienced it all. 3M or Johnson might look great for a while (5-6 years even) but it WILL fail.. Anything from fading to peeling to bubbles.. 3M is the most expensive and one of the LAST films we would use. BUT all of their other products are amazing

I absolutely love my visor strip! It's actually one of my favorite things about my whole tint. It's a 7" 5% strip and makes the car look so much meaner and blocks that sun nicely lol.

My tint guy wouldn't do mine because he didn't have the tool to remove the rearview mirror and said he'd broken a windshield trying to get one off without the tool. I guess I'll buy a tool so I can get mine done. Summer is coming fast and it gets hot here. I'd like to get my windows a little darker than the 25% they are now, but not gonna have perfectly good tint removed just for a few %.

Wow, just wow lmao

"I'm pregnant. The HOV lane requires two persons in a vehicle. Now that I'm eating for two, can I use this lane?California law requires that in order to utilize the HOV lane, there must be two (or, if posted, three) separate individuals occupying seats in a vehicle. Until your "passenger" is capable of riding in his or her own seat, you cannot count them."

It's legal in Florida if you have a note from your eye doctor/dermatologist/etc.. that you need it for sensitive eyes/skin. Just need to keep it in the car if you get pulled over.

And you know this from experience? BC it used to be that way in GA as well but the law changed. I thought it was a national law but I could be wrong. Either way IDC, only .09% of the cops n GA can test my windshield so they can't give me a ticket anyways

On a side note you can see out of it very good even at night.
