I'm planning to get window tint on my Enclave. But I do plan on to get eyebrow tint as well. But question is, since I do have the Forward Collision Alert and stuff, is it a good idea to get the eyebrow tint? If so, should I get nonmetalized as well? Thanks!

I have the eyebrow on my 08. However, I don't have the front collision warning option. Since yours DOES, I wouldn't put anything across there at all that may hinder it's ability to do what is meant to do.

Is it located on or behind the rearview mirror? I wonder if they could cut the tint out around that area? I know that when they did mine, they just ran the tint film over the perforated factory tint that is behind the mirror.

Yeah, I would stay away from doing an eyebrow on that.

I'm pretty sure they can cut the film to suit what you ask the installer to do.

If you have some type of EZ Pass for toll roads, make sure the tint doesn't cover up that tag

How thick is your eyebrow tint cfedor?
I had a friend of mine who is a professional installer put the tint on the front windows and the eyebrow. I do know that it is a 17% darkness, which is just over the legal darkness. I will check with him and find out.

Because I know some usually do like 5 inch width for the eyebrow tint so was just wondering what's the width on yours?

OK. That makes more sense to me. I thought you meant the actual thickness of the film he used. The width of mine is wider on the sides approx. 6-1/2". At the center mirror from the roof liner it is 4-3/8". This is due to the curvature of the windshield.

There is a label imprinted on the windshield glass on the passenger side (ASI) that is set by the NTSB that tint is not allowed to fall below. That is where mine goes down to.
