jimb,

Yes, the front side windowsare tinted. Illegal here in CA but installer said he hasn't had any problems using the light tint. He even has this combination on his truck and car.

I have noted a big difference in inside temps between my Mazda (tinted rears only) and the Prius after sitting in the sun all day.

The manufacturer of my Paint Protection film is CPFilms using the Llumar brand (Same manufacturer for the FormulaOne tint films). The links on Llumar's website are difficult to navigate. Here's the link you need to use.

BTW, it has a LIFETIME warranty.

Default You're crazy NOT to tint the windows

With all of those windows, you'ld be crazy not to get them tinted. I got my complete car done at one of the best shops in the bay area for $250, so it's not that much money (all the windows, including the little front window and the rear window below the spoiler).

If you don't tint the windows, it will be hot inside, AND your car will look like it doesn't have the windows tinted!!!

p.s. they didn't tint your front windows, so take it back to whomever did your window tinting and tell them that they didn't finish the job!

Illegal to have front windows tinted in NJ.

Default That's Irrelevant, tint the front side windows anyway

That's irrelevant, tint the driver and passenger side windows anyway. If you're white, they aren't going to pull you over unless you drive like a maniac, and you probably don't drive like a maniac if you bought a Prius (there are exceptions like the kid who said he drove 117 MPH everywhere he went).

If you're brown, the Pxxs are going to pull you over anyway, http://www.counterpunch.org/moses04262005.html , so it doesn't really matter.

So Wizardbill, are you saying you are volunteering to pay Sanny's fine and any other expenses he may incur if he is forced to comply with the law, should he get stopped and fined? Many have testified that their states were big sticklers about tinting, and there were even reports of those traveling through a state having a problem where the tinting didn't comply, though it complied with their home state.
