    Yeah, my 16 has rear privacy glass which made it a bit of a challenge and getting it all to match depends on the percent your after. My isntaller was able to get it all to match pretty spot on using standard Llumar film. I was able to get 15% put on the front, and 50% put on the rear since the factory glass came in around ~30% bringing the total down to 15% to match the fronts.

    Well that makes more sense. So my fishbowl feeling in my '14 is warranted!

    F_399, where you at in Texas? Scenery looks more green, but I'm here in El Paso.

    Take out the hood liner, It's one way I've been working around the crazy Texas heat.

    That's really helpful- I've been looking to get my front windows to match the rest- need to get the windows tinted...

    What does taking out the hood liner do?

    The hood liner acts like a blanket.

    I also wrapped the test pipe in "titanium" wrap and removed the heat shield that came with my intake. I've got the under hood temps somewhere, but I just played with taking things on and off.

    Most improvement was the FMIC and piping upgrade

    To those of you who have managed to not have any god awful whistling with the Thule aeroblade edge bar, would you mind snapping a pic of the placement of the bars? This is maddening.

    Is your top channel cover in good shape? No gaps in the rubber? If there is a gap it could/will whistle.
