    Xenarc 700TSV & Glare

    It's absolutely horrible. I know I can get the transflective screen but at the price, I'd rather deal with the glare. However, I don't have my windows tinted right now and I'm hoping that doing so will cut the glare at least a little. Has anyone got lucky with tint helping reduce the glare on the screen?

    yep it helps, but still the light from the windshield still had a glare. You could tint your front windshield like 50% and still see out of the car. Lots of my friends have this done. most tint shop will not tint the front. find someone willing to do it.

    I have the same issue but most of the glare I get is from the reflection in the passenger seat or the sunlight coming from straight above. I was thinking about building a small hood but I dont know if I can do one that will look really good and keep the stock OEM look of the G35 housing.

    In my car, tinting all the windows made a huge difference, but as you said the main problem is the glare from the windshield directly above.

    I've always thought doing a tint strip (6-8"?) across the top of the windshield would make a difference, and this is legal in most states, as far as I know. I haven't tried yet, but it's my next stop. I might even get a cheap roll of tint from autozone and mock it up just to see if it helps.

    I won't ever go so far as to tint my whole windshield. I want to see my monitor, sure, but seeing the outside world at night is more important. Call me old-fashioned.

    I doubt those tint strips at the top of the front windshield would do anything. Most of the glare seems to be from the sun entering the front two windows and directly shining on the screen, or from sunlight reflecting off the seats. I have limo tint on the back windows of my car and that did not make any difference.
