What you just posted is proof it is the tint on the front windshield. Bright sunny day more light getting through. Cloudy= less light. The automatic sensor is working correctly.

I'm sure a ZL1 DRL harness will fix this problem, if you don't have it already.

Guys, I got some sick new Rayban sunglasses the other day but everytime I wear them I can't see as well, like it's dark out or something. As soon as I take them off though I see perfectly fine.

My reading glasses I see just fine with them on as I see with them off, but not with these guys.

Anyone know what's up with that? I'm going to go check with the salesman I bought them from cuz this is not acceptable!!!

My windshield has been tinted 50% for months with no issues whatsoever. The shop owner that did my tint owns a 2013 SS and has his tinted at 50% and all his other cars as well with no issues.

How in the world do you see ANYTHING at night with that much tint?

Or, do you only drive in the daylight?

I can't believe that is remotely safe visibility at night.

With the GREAT sunvisors that are in the ZL1, I need something better than a great pair of Oakleys! Couldn't decide if whole windshield or just thr brow. How hard is it to see out of 50%?

Not a problem, not even a little bit at night.
Insulates glass, protects you, and your interior.
No way I'd have any vehicle w/out it.

50% is the clearest and lightest tint you can put on a car. Ant it is legal in Puerto Rico to tint the whole windshield with 50%. Everybody does it here. It doesn't interfere with night driving at all.
