    I'm certain my totalled '14 had 25% all around. I found that too dark for a lot of my urban areas, much less my rural roads.

    I can't count the number of times a family with stroller would come from no where to cross at the intersection where I was going to make a RH turn. When I do the front windows on my '17 (currently has nothing) they will be 32%.

    I'd rather be a little warm than hitting kids.

    You're Canadian, you've only ever had to deal with "a little warm". Atlanta is comparable to Saigon or Bangkok in heat and humidity, in other words, it's horrible lol. I will be more diligent but I really don't see that much of a difference in night time visibility versus my 2014 Mirage, that had 32% all around minus the windshield.

    How's this for a "little warm" https://metro.co.uk/2021/06/30/dozen...heat%20dome%27.

    Mind, in Ontario it was only Tunisia desert warm, so a balmy 42-45C!

    That was from a year ago? An unprecedented "heat dome" over Canada? Yeesh that's terrible but hardly the norm. Summers must be glorious up there.

    That was a wild heat dome. The day of the peak the entire town of Litton burned up.

    But our normal summers are awesome. The only problem is they are too short!
