If you don't put it on the front row windows, you're golden. Otherwise, the polizei will be on you like white on rice.

I was under the impression that if it were anywhere on the vehicle you would be in hot water. The issue being the potential to blind other motorists.

You could experiment with a less dark film to see if you could get a better balance. I believe that some modern films block similiar amounts of energy without looking as black to the eye. Check out this resource . This helps

I wonder if there is still an advantage, from a heat standpoint of having both factory tint and gila reflective on the inside. Iím not going for a look. Did you happen to take temp readings with and without reflective film?

Is it 20% REFLECTION, or 20% light transmission? I don't know of any law against reflective window tints. I have seen chrome cars on the road.
