    +1 for me too.got mine last week and am very happy with them. With clean windows they look like tints and are removable in the darker months, so its a win win situation!

    you can't really apply any film to the fronts since the govt says 70% light must pass through these and as most factory fit glass is at this level of tint already even a very light film added on top will take the tint above 70% and therefore making it illegal.
