I can imagine it would get very old, very fast in stop and go bumper to bumper traffic on 66 and 495 during rush hour traffic in Northern Virginia and MD. at least it can be turned off and/or disabled completely with the bypass mentioned earlier in the thread.
interesting. although wouldn't you have to have some type of medical need in order to get that prescription? find it hard to believe you can just roll into your local optometrist and say you want to tint your windshield, so give me a prescription doc.
as I have never done a dealer/factory order, can you briefly explain the process? any deposit/down payment needed up front? what paperwork needs to be done, etc.? if you cancel your order once in transit, surely there is some penalty incurred, since the dealer would be left with a customized...
just keep in mind the factory glass has some % of tinting added, so any additional tint over that for example 20% tint film, will actually turn out a bit darker at maybe 15% or so. not sure what the factory tint % is on the rear windows. my guess would be 20%.
You can apply a UV protectant spray that goes on clear. I did this when I restored the headlights on my current car after going over them with sand paper to get rid of the haziness on them. Creates a nice barrier and provides a slight shine as well.
maybe they are being overwhelmed by orders and those vehicles being built for general sale at dealerships? perhaps orders are just postponed until further notice. interesting to hear this though as I am in the process of putting together an order.
