    It might be a little while. I have to settle with the insurance company, buy a new car, collect parts for a new system, then install it.

    check out http://www.man-machine.com/. they perform various brightness enhancements. You can change the backlight (if it's commonly accessible), upgrade the inverter (it'll kill the backlight faster though), or upgrade the optical films inside. Putting anti-reflective coating will also help.

    That film will not work. That is only for a Front lit LCD. If you look at the diagram, theres a light guide in front of the film. The light guide acts as a prism to reflect light coming in on the side down onto the LCD, and at the same time let light thru. So applying that film, what you are basically doing is increasing the sunlight hitting the screen. So for a backlit system, it'll most likely look darker or super high glare.

    Well we'll soon see. I talked for about an hour on the phone to the guy @ 3M about the films. He told me the exact opposite. I also spoke with an installer who told me that he had used the films before. He said nothing special although it did work.

    At any rate I have some "samples" on the way and I'll be able to draw the conclusions myself very soon.
