I'm the only person in it 98% of the time. My wife's driven it once since I bought it new, and that was on the day I took possession. The rear seat has never been sat in.

Thanks, Mango. I wish I'd gone with the 15% tint, not the 35%. The thing is, I like it, just not enough to put up with the inevitable long term hassles of tint getting scratched, etc.
