NIX that...I hate it. Thanks for sharing though. I like the photoshop version better. The bar is thicker and the windows are shorter.

Again, thanks for sharing!

In the photoshop, it makes the hatchback look so much better!!
I agree, the product should be much wider...

Sounds like it is a double sided tape install for a small piece of painted fiberglass. For it really to work, it needs to be a whole new deck lid. For a unpainted version with the two glass pieces, I would be willing to paid $1200 to $1400.

Still IMO I do not like it at all!

Might not be able to see it on mine if I were ever to do it, a blacked out back window with black paint or it might just be subtle enough not really to notice it. You never know!

Thanks,Matt

I don't think i would use either kit on mine, but I think the first one would look better if they rounded the corners. I don't think the sharp corners just don't go with the rest of the curves on the car

I like the Photochop ALOT better!! I think GM should have done this on the 2003 as an option. Of course, I'm a little biased...

The first one looks better, but there's no way in hell you could see out of it. The bottom part cuts off the view.
