Tinted, or clear? New clear glass installed at my local place it $175. Green tinted, installed, is $250. Any compelling reason to go with the green tint over the clear? Glare reduction as a safety benefit would probably be a reason.

I had replaced my first windshield with green... Many years ago... And didn't see any difference between the green and clear ... I prefer the look of clear... I have clear now

My glass guy said they all came from the factory clear and years of UV caused the greenish tint. He might have been talking me into clear and it worked.

Ok so how do you get rid of the evening glare. Oh! drive only during the day light? How about dark tint? FJ40 is a specific look but safety is safety. Anyone else got a glare reducer idea?

Sounds like you need some vintage 80's flip up clip on yellow night driving shades on your glasses :)

The only glare I get is when I drive into the sunset and its blaring me in the face... I have a vintage Hollywood accessories flip down sun shade on my sun visor for that :)

When I got my windshield cut, I went with tinted. It cuts the glare and keeps the inside a smidge cooler. Not original, but I'm no purist. Cheers, ty
