I just got my G35 a few days ago and I was planning on getting a metallic type tint (which looks much nicer than a dye based tint) on the windows and a valentine 1 radar detector. Since the valentine works by picking up signals from all 4 directions (front, rear, left, and right) do any of you have experience using it in a metallic window tinted car? Does that decrease the valentine's reception from the sides and rear?

Radar guns use radio waves. Radio waves pass through your house with ease so I wouldn't expect your tint to disturb them...

Tint has no bearing on the effectiveness of the V1 or any other radar/laser detector that I know of. Just be sure to mount it in the correct place, top center of windshield.
