Re: successful 30% looks dark on white

Dee, i have a silver car, do you think that 30 would look too dark on silver, should i get a lighter tint, and you dont have and scratches when you roll your windows up and down?

20% on rear window and passenger...and 35% on front

if you like, I can post a picture of it. I have a white car and it is just dark enough to not attract the attention of the law.... :)

Re: successful 30% looks dark on white

im really happy with 30% not too dark and not too light plus my opinion is do just one percentage on both back and front windows i dont like the way that looks when its different tints ....defiantly go with 30%

Re: successful 30% looks dark on white

35% all around, but with a black car and charcoal interior, it looks darker in the daylight.<br> <br> Yes, i have vertical scratches from the windows rolling up and down. someone from mbworld.org said you need to replace the window mouldings on the inside with 'moleskin' <br> <br> Also, don't use a metallic-based tint on the rear window, otherwise you will get static on radio reception. Test the tint by placing a sheet on the rear window (even on the outside) and if you immediately hear static, then you know it's metallic.<br> <br> <br> <br>

Bad luck here

I had tint put on and the shop screwed up the comb bar in the back rear window. The comb bar is the antenea for the locking system and the radio. The damage was $1450. After many phone calls, and finger pointing between the dealer, the tint place (and the tint place to me), the dealer covered it under warrenty. I guess the solution used in the tinting process disovled or losened the glue holding the comb bar to the back glass. Just an fyi...
