      Yes, I had Johnson Films InsulatorIR on my last car. Also there is Wincos, I think it looks blue on some cars. The TSER total solar energy rejection is the number you want to look at. Formula One's comfort series is actually a good value. The better TSER tint is worth a look hear in South Texas but I'll bet a quality film will do great that far north.

      4th mod already lol ?

      Tint
      Wipers
      Wheels
      and what ?

      As for the tint, huper optik is great too but much more $$$
      You can also look for the Llumar Air Blue 80, it's an 80% tint so almost clear with 78% VLT but rejects I think 43% heat (the 30% PI rejects 51%, 15% is 61% heat rejection) but it is almost clear with a light blue tint like Mercedes windows, so if you're not into the tinted look you can get that tint.

      Im going to test drive one today, went a couple of weeks ago but they had no manual, and until I drive it I will not order anything... The dealer has been calling me every week to book an appointment, but they had no cars, and plus when I went that first time they wanted my 06 at all costs... Without negotiating they came with a pretty decent deal...

      Will let you know today, but if I had a choice I would get it in the color you got... Opera red rocks....

      Tell me more about activating the rain sensing wipers. Do you need the VAG-com software and cable or is this something the dealer can do with there in-shop diagnostic equipment?

      We drove 4 hours to Chattanooga, TN to pick it up. It was the Premium SEL. On the way home, we drove over 300 miles at 85 to 95 miles per hour. When I arrived, the first thing I did was check my fuel efficiency.... 41.5 MPG @ 90 mph.... not bad at all!!!
