Even with my front window tinted I haven't had to roll window down. My wife's suv has 15% all around and I can still see although at times its more challenging. If you go 5% you had best. I had that once and there was horrible glare from interior lights on windows which made low light intersections horrible and I had to roll window down. So 20% should be fine

I have no problem seeing out of 35, even in the darkest of night. Here's a comparison shot, I know it during the day but you get the idea.

interesting....

Do you guys think the brand matters between darkness?

Also, will the film look darker after awhile? For example, 1st day, its pretty bright, next week, its a bit darker.?

Thanks

Mine looked darker after it cured for the 2 days you can't roll down your windows I think they used 3m on mine not 100% sure but it has a lifetime warranty against fading, peeling, and bubbling I paid 100 for all the windows

It's probably a little different in Maryland... I was quoted $285 for 7 windows and a windshield strip.

Do you think its okay to use Grade 8 bolts from Home depot? or should I just go for the SOA "approved"/sold bolts?

Thanks

Well, I would go to the dealer no problem if it wasnt such a big deal to drive over. my local dealer is about 40min, and even then, its not in my commute area. Home depot is about 10min driving, and is sometimes in my commute. Also grade 8 bolts are $1 a piece. SOA might charge like $5..

I paid $140 for all windows, best image in san mateo. Ive actually been told that if you go in there saying so and so told me they got it for $120 cash, you can get it for $120 cash. Good quality, and warranty as well..

Anyone have any exhaust suggestions? None of them really seem to sound all that good IMO, but I'm trying to get a bit of sound out of my car. The tsudo n1 sounds decent and isn't a terrible price for the catback.

I went to Stevens Creek... I walked in with the part numbers I needed. Everything was in stock. Walked out with all my stuff.

Random ****ty picture of the invoice with the list prices.



The parts in order (I think)
Brackets (x2)
Bushings (x2)
Bolt for brackets (x4)
Endlink (x2)
Nut for top of the endlinks (x2)
Nut for bottom of the endlinks (x2)
Bolt for bottom of the endlinks (x2)

I had plans to get the bar from a friend who upgraded his '09 WRX. He gave me the bar with the bushings and endlinks attached. So I really got a bunch of **** I didn't need.

IDK if NASIOC gets a discount but mention i-club and they'll give you 10%. My friend was the parts manager at the time (he since got promoted), I think he might have given me a bit more then 10%.
