Can anyone with a White GC post some pics please? I'm looking at tinting mine and I'm not sure how dark I should go.
Thanks,
Chris

Not sure if anyone ever responded to this question, but radio reception, radar detectors, etc. are only an issue with the metal based tints--they have metal mixed in to block the heat, and the metal messes with the radio / electromagnetic waves.

The newer ceramic based tints will not interfere but are more expensive.

Just adding to the thread for others who need to make a decision on tint. 18% rear windshield, 28% sides. MaxPro CP film (no metal).

Previously had 20% all around on a Pontiac Grand Am. I think the lighter tint looks better... more of a 'luxury' feel I guess.

Before:


After:


This pic makes it look a little bit darker than it is:

i have a 2010 hatch and was thinking of doing either 15 or 20% on the back little window and the rear passenger then maybe a 35% on the front window and rear hatch.... any thoughts on having different tint on the side. any pictures close to that would be great
