The link to the pics is down below. I did 35% reflective tint all the way around (minus windshield). I was considering going the gradient route...50% front, 35% rear sides, and 20% back. But the guy at the tint shop said he never recommends the gradient tint job on small cars. Said it looks a little strange. Whether or not it actually does, I can't say for sure...but I trusted his opinion. And I think the 35% all around looks awesome. Not too dark, but it helps a TON with keeping the heat down. And it really adds to the Coupe's looks I think.

I just drove back to the SF Bay Area from Irvine today...it was HOT (90-100) outside the whole way back. But with the AC on its lowest fan setting, I was perfectly comfortable the whole way...which wouldn't have been possible before. I even had to turn the temp up a tad from max cold... (Oh, and just a side note...the AC in our cars works wonderfully at 100+mph hour! hehe...I did 400+miles today in a little over 5 hours...with about 40 mins of crappy LA traffic. Not bad.)
