This is clear XPEL PPF and 35% on all but front. Wanted just enough tint to cut heat and a little privacy but not dark.

Would you please post photo from the side? I’m debating tint levels and interested in how dark the 35 is…thanks in advance

For another couple data points for you. Here is my 2021 pre-refresh S with 80% windshield and 35% everywhere else.

I liked the combo so much I did the same on my Plaid. I don't have perfect side pic but maybe these are helpful. The sun was setting behind me for the Plaid pics.

We just got our car back from full body PPF (Stek Dynoshield), and it seems like there are a few small air bubbles kind of all over it... they're not very noticeable, but there are a ton. Should I expect that these will go away as it kind of cures, or should I be working on an unhappy email to the folks who did it?

Few small bubbles can be normal right after install and should go away in a few days. If not, then I would ask the installer to fix it.

Yeah, a few small is normal. Park in the sun or a warm dry garage and they will go away. If not a good installer will fix it. Mine inspects and washes two weeks after install. They found two spots that were not right and replaced two panels. Now perfect.

Got my Plaid back today, wrapped and tinted. 35% ceramic tint, but not dark enough so probably have it redone 15-20%. Not great pics but at least it’s back to start driving. Cant wait for track-mode and upgraded brakes
