I have that gauge and was wondering, does it cause glare? Did you use that
tinted film too? I haven't fully mounted mine yet, as I don't know the best
position and I'd like to experiment (but I'm lazy, so the experimentation is
taking forever). Also, do you have polarized lenses on your sunglasses? If so,
how do you get around the fact that the display is mostly blocked out by them?
