Any Coupes with Titanium Window Tint in Boston or NYC Area

Mark suggests that you first check out a car with the tint to see whether
you like it.

So, does anyone have a Coupe in the Boston or NY area with the titanium

Does anyone have experience putting a strip of non-titanium tint in the
middle of the rear window to allow radar to go thru?

Thx.  glenn
