Why only the front windows?

+1 3M Crystaline is excellent film. 70% film hardly darkens. I've seen it used on windshields and be virtually undetectable.

Save your money and get some good tints on your face. I never use these either.
Blinds are cool. Any punk with a ricer can have tint.

I have 70% on the front, 50% on the rear and back, and a 40% stripe on the windshield. All 3M.

It's really hard to get decent pictures of it, but here's mine. Sorry for the bad reflections.

3M Crystaline: Front 70%, Rear 50%, with shades down and up.

Agreed, under most conditions it is not detectable, but at certain sun and viewing angles you definitely get a mirror like refection from it.

CHP is way picky about tint on the front windshield; no way I'd try that here!
