Window Tint

Is anyone getting window tint installed? The standard glass seems to be tinted enough. However, I don't know how UV resistant it is. My concern in having the widows tinted

Is anyone getting window tint installed? The standard glass seems to be tinted enough. However, I don't know how UV resistant it is. My concern in having the widows tinted is that windows move when opening and closing the doors.

I had mine done and the drivers side door had to be re-done right away due to it being damaged as per your description above. The trick is to pull the rubber away from the glass so about 1" of the film makes it below and behind the rubber on the inside botton of the door window opening.

BTW, I used 30% on the sides and 25% on the back, this are within the limits in Florida.

I'm definately getting window tint. I had it on the 350z and had absolutely no issues with it. If it is done right, then the window moving with the door shut will not affect the tint.

I had it for about 2 years on the 350 with not even a sign of it peeling anywhere

Jus got mine tinted today and they had no problem with the windows moving up and down ... Im taking a risk and put 7% on the back, 23% on the sides, and even did the windshield 70% to give it a slight glare and keep the sun from beeming in on you as you drive... looks really good and keeps my stuff inside safer now ... I hated using the cargo cover in the trunk...

Hi evse82, i was quoted by the After sales lady $595. I said no and didnt even try to negotiate a better price. Part of what I know is a higher price was that LCT was being added to the price due to the cost of the car.

Then doing it aftermarket you will generally be able to get it cheaper and possibly better quality. Being winter ATM I'm not worried about it yet. I'll look into getting done quite soon. Probably look at 20-25% for the rear window. Then 35% (darkest legal I think in QLD) for the driver/passenger window.

I have also been thinking about that little triangle piece on the B-Pillar and how dark to go there. Would like to almost have it Blacked Out to match the surrounds of it.

Welcome to TintACar.com.au
I know quite a few people that have been quite happy with TintACar. I am going with a local company myself that has done a few of my cars and offer pretty great prices (have to check old receipts, cant remember their name).

I had the Formula1 UV tint on my S15 and had no complaints. That lasted over 7 years without any problems apart from damage caused by the window mechanism itself which was an issue with most S15's.

My dealer said I can get it done and pay AFTER paying for the car to avoid the LCT. This is the dealer tint. I'm wondering if it would be better to get TintACar to do it.

It would be interesting to see how the dealer could make it avoid LCT, if the car is being delivered with the Tint. I have no doubt though there are ways around. As i have mentioned i never really tried to bargain on the tint, as i think i already had in my head i would get it done aftermarket.

Can ask what was the price they offered for the tint from the dealer.

I was under the impression the car would be delivered without the tint and then the tint being added on-site by the dealer... maybe i'm wrong. Oh well i've got plenty of time to think about it

I can't remember what I was quoted for the tint by itself, I had just ordered the car and was too excited.
