    One thing I learned was that the VY has silicon around all the windows that the tind doesn't cover very well (Imagine putting glad wrap on a basketball). This is not a huge issue, but something to prepare yourself for.

    Darkest Legal Tint for QLD is 35% all round and if you read your state guidelines, its pretty clear no loopholes exist.
