: : 1) Any good recommendations in the Bay Area?

: since i am in texas i will defer on this one :)

: : 2) Do you recommend the *metallic* film? I've heard it can degrade the effectiveness of a radar locator (according to Valentine 1 literature).

: i believe that is front and back windows (side windows shouldn't affect it much

: : 3) I'd like to hear what grade/% "darkness" (for lack of a better word) others have used on the front and rear windows?

: there are laws about how dark it can be...here in texas it is 35% on the front sides and 50% (i think) in the back rear and rear window

Actually I think it's 35% visible light transmission in front and 20% (darker than 35%) visible light transmission in the rear. --Andi
