Have you thought about doing a followup treatment?
ill have to think about that this fall when i do it over again.. thanks for the tip. i look forward to treating again.

i think you are right .. i would say its a combination of the windows not being tinted and being left unconditioned from the previous owner. the front windows of my car were never tinted so that explains it.
