Has anyone tried to tint the factory windscreen? I would like mine tinted but other than buying one that way not sure what my options would be, thought I would ask the forum. Thanks

I've seen tinting film applied to other plastic windscreens.  You might take it to a local shop that does this work and get their opinion on it.

I believe he's referring to the problem with SOME types of plastic windscreens that "outgas" and SOME types of window tint that don't permit any such gas to pass through and bubbling due to the trapped gas.  Again, however, a reputable shop will know of this and will recommend the correct tinting product.
