I know this really isn't a 337 thread thing, but I didn't see this jump out at me when performing a search. With many of you possibly getting your new ride tinted......a discussion I just had with Mike Valentine might be of interest. I had heard metallic film caused problems but didn't realize the extent. Basically, it shuts down a detectors ability to detect: "it's no different than holding up a piece of sheet metal albeit transparent". Soooo, that will definitely play into my decision at the tint shop this afternoon (going with the dyed solution), because I'll be ordering a V1 in the very near future.......
