    From what I've heard, tint will not hurt radar detection but will significantly affect laser detection. Accroding to Mike V, just a clear windshield cuts laser detection by 25%.

    "Mounting high behind the tint band may reduce the laser signal somewhat, but it reduces the sunlight contamination by the same amount. The result is an unchanged laser-to-sunlight ratio from the scene beyond your vehicle, but with reduced hood reflections owing to a higher vantage pointa net gain. Only in the dead of night would a just-below-the-tint-band mounting position be beneficial."

    ur rele not gonna gain like that much..maybe from being mounted low on your windsheild to as high as possible u could gain an of say radar over a hill and pick the signal up a second earlier..but in real life i dont think it makes THAT big of a dif..if its mounted high then good but moving an inch or so higher in the tint..ehh idk
