        XV is one segment lower, how to compare. To fight CRV & CX5 is Forester which is much more expensive.

    Is it possible to tint the windshield, will it block eyesight? I think the 7 inch black tint on the top of windshield is not possible.

    • Yes, I have tested my XV, the 7″ Black strip sure blocking the eyesight. They are on and off during the night, so the tint shop help me to cut 2 holes in front of camera and they are ok now.
