Yes to the metal film if your car has the summer package. (If your sunroof
has solar panels instead of a moon roof, you have it.) Other A8's may have
it as well, since I know A8 is specifically mentioned on the NY EZPass site
as requiring an external module. I mounted mine in front of the radiator,
though instructions say to mount it to the license plate, where it can be
easily stolen. I don't know if your inside module can withstand the weather
of being mounted outside. You should switch it.
Yes, it blocks radar detectors and cell phone signals. (If you're in a weak
coverage area, you'll notice the difference.) I also assume, but don't
know, that it is the reason my car remote won't work except from really
close and only from certain points around the car.
Generally a pain except in the summer, when I love it again. The car stays
*much* cooler in the sun.

Subject: [A8] Windshield film?
I've noticed with my "new" A8 that my EZPass no longer seems to work. Is
there a metal film in the windshield that blocks it? Does it block radar
detectors from alerting also? Not that I would EVER speed, mind you, I just
want to know to be, er, safe.
