Description: 3M windows tint @ 35%
3M Crystalline tint for windshield @ 70% = near completely clear/transparent. This not only eliminates the need for a windshield shade, but also filters out 90+% of the harmful UV from dash and and interior. I can hop into the black leather seats without worrying about getting burned. And when driving with top up, I'm not getting roasted by the sun coming through the windshield.

Description: Have read many rave reviews about the SB that I couldn't pass this one up... esp when I was able to get it for 90% off (paid 10%) of retail.

I have the SB for auto trans b/c that's what I was able to get for the price. though, I've also heard that the SB-Auto is also better (less sensitive than the SB-Manual unit). Worked out perfect!
