It's FINE. The glass itself comes with a sticker that says minimum 70% visibilty so there seems to be a SLIGHT darkness built into the glass. So the 20% tint I got MAY be a little darker than what 20% SHOULD be.

I went from a 25% on my Cobalt so I'm used to it and I had no problem driving at night. Now, backing into a spot at night with this tint is a tic scary, in part as well bc the visibility in the Gen5 is not that great but still not impossible.

The rear camera helps but takes some getting used to

Looks great, and yea the windows come with a tint from the factory, when I had 35% tint on my side windows when I got pulled over it actually read 27%. Def looks really good.

I've put in for leave 26-30 Nov...I have to get released from this detail and leave approved for those dates. The shop said those dates work for them and that's the plan for the build.

I'm working on 1 or two other things during/after the build that I will share with the site.

Since I have the rear OD I'm going to try and put on a 3.3pulley(that my builder has in stock) with a smaller belt and see if there is any slip :P

Thoughts?

Your not gonna get 2 sets of rims no matter what package you order . A 1LE will come with 1LE wheels.

I thought the same thing, but I was told by a dealership that you only get one set of wheels. You're right, the RS package should show a discount when getting the 1LE package. Maybe if enough of us make some noise, GM wil honor a discount. (just hoping ) I think the philosophy behind the packages is the price reflects an upgrade from the base wheels. If they were to offer the package for complete cost of the wheels(hence getting two sets of wheels) then the packages would be a LOT more expensive.

Are you replacing the badges with something else, or leaving it debadged? I don't like the complete debadged look personally. Car looks great though, I like the black and white contrast!
