looks awesome!!!

Was there existing tint they had to remove or was it virgin glass?

Did you do the same % all the way around, and how much did this run you?

Sorry about all the questions, but I'm really interested in getting this done on my BD

That really looks good. Mine isn't dark enough, just might have to get this done someday.

No problem, I like questions

It was virgin glass, there's a factory green tint strip on the top of the windshield so I decided not to have them tint it because it's dyed into the glass, and it would look weird. Perhaps if I get a new windshield in the future I can add the strip. All the other windows had no previous tint

It is indeed the same % all around, going lighter up front and darker in back looks goofy to me.

SRP is having a spring sale $20 off until the end of May for a total of $220. I hear they have the same sale in the summer time around July too

Visibility has not been an issue for me yet, In the daytime it's great, no problems seeing out, but you can't see in

A lot of people say it's hard to see backing up at night, this isn't the case I've found. Because whenever I back up my reverse lights + running/brake lights provide enough light for me to see and I'm usually around a street light anyway. I suppose up in the mountains with NO lights it could be a challenge but so far it's fine.

Yeah, I really didn't want to pay for 35% (limit in OR) because there's barely anything on there. I was originally going to go 30% but seeing 18% was just so cool and after all the cars I've looked at the consensus is ~20% is a good compromise between darkness/visibility, which I wholeheartedly agree

Where is SRP anyway? Are the the folks up in Tacoma?

I'm actually one of those who want just the 35% tint. I'm looking to go a lot more subtle, but then I would like to have the fully reflective film on my moonroofs. I can not figure out why Subaru made the moonroofs in relatively clear glass.

They are actually in Auburn which is southern Washington, about 145 miles from portland-ish area to their store.
