This week I ordered a Magnaflow dual outlet muffler and some Ractive oval tips, I'll post before/after pics when I get it done. Here'* the wife'* tint job:

looks good! would you consider doing the front windows too to make it look more uniform? It doesn't have to be as dark as 20%, maybe 35% would look good up there?

Sadly, here in California, they don't let you tint the front door windows. We had a baby boy 7 months ago, and the sun really nails him in his car seat in the back seat. We tried those shades that stick on with suction cups, and we tried those static-cling shades, and they just don't work in the sun. Window tinting cuts over 60% of the heat and 99% of UV. (And it looks cool.)

I'm a big fan of the "and it looks cool" part.

XKalibuR: Your headrests look different. I'm guessing you have the leather interior with bucket seats? I have fabric with wide power captain'* chair and unpowered passenger seat with fold-up armrest for middle front seat passenger, shifter on the column. (Only had to put someone in the middle in front one time.)
