    Model S Sunroof

    I have a 2022 Model S and I want to reduce the heat in my car coming from the sunroof but I also love the view from the sunroof and don’t want it to be too dark. I was looking at ceramic tints and was wondering what level tint do you think is a good compromise between preventing heat and...

    Did Tint Shop Damage My Windows?

    Got tint installed on my side windows yesterday. 3M Ceramic, 30 on front, 15 on rear. I went back today because there was a tough to reach area that had not been fully tacked down. They fixed that and when I was cleaning the outside of my windows, I noticed these circles on the exterior of the...

    Bad XPEL Installation?

    Hello, Today I got my new MYP back after paying $3k for XPEL front clip PPF and XPEL tint by an XPEL certified installer. I’ve noticed a lot of dust related bubbles on both the PPF and tint and am wondering if this is normal, or if I should be contacting the installer. I also had the mirror...

    Getting Tesla to pay for a window retint.

    So my car is being serviced and they are replacing the top, rear glass and the headliner. I suppose it’s a leak. So I was wondering if anyone has had experience with getting Tesla to pay for re-tinting my rear glass. I called my tint place and they told me I would just have to pay for materials...

    When to tint?

    Just received my first Tesla (2022 MYLR) yesterday and am very excited. I made an appointment to get my windows tinted/coated next week but I also made a service for delivery issues. The Tesla service will be a few weeks after the tint work. Is it better to get the tinting done after the Tesla...

    MY Front Window Tint Only

    Been looking to get my front windows tinted to match the factory back window tint. I rarely if ever have passengers in the back, do not care about UV protection for them and I've never had it before for myself, so only looking to do it for cosmetic reasons. I'm in San Diego, CA and am set on...

    Hey guys A few months ago I got a delivery of my new Model S. I wanted to customize it but since it's so new there was nothing on the market, so I've decided to do it myself.

    Got a bad tint job. Not sure what I should do.

    Had my new M3 tinted last week. I picked it up when it was still drying so didn't think much of it. This is the first time I got a car tinted, so from the outside things looked good. The next day, I started noticing bubbles, this wrinkle in the back, the alignment issue, and even a scratch on...

    If you're here, maybe you've already gotten familiar with the other conversations about this topic. I'll spare you those and what they covered and assume you're mostly up to speed and hopefully you'll give me the same credit as well. My idea is to have tint installed OUTSIDE of the glass...

    Hello, Does anyone have any recommendations of where to get a Model 3's windows tinted? What location and product works well? And did you get the rear window done? Thanks

    Jacksonville, FL Tint

    Got quoted LLumar CTX $520 for 15% sides, full 30% rear, 80% front w/ the vanity mirror strip, all ceramic. It’s been ages since I’ve had tint done, this doesn’t seem unreasonable with that amount of glass. Anyone have any Jacksonville area experiences? I know prices vary wildly regionally.

    Rear glass cracked is tint a possible cause?

    I noticed my rear glass cracked months after I had my M3 tinted. I am certain it was not an accident from the tint shop since I inspected their job right after the tint was placed. Is this normal? I am getting my car serviced, should I remove the tint before going in so they won't blame it on that?

    Don't care about the look, but like not to have the heat. Tint windshield?

    Hi, I live in northern California, weather gets around high 90 for a few months in the Bay Area. I really don't care about the look of tinting, but if tinting the windshield does help to fight off the heat, maybe it's worth it to consider spending $300 to tint the front windshield? I only care...

    Deciding on rear window tint with/without forward roof tint. Any pics/opinions?

    Getting tinted tomorrow, so probably too late for this, but any pics looking up from the inside where the rear glass is tinted but the forward roof is not? My worry is that it'll look weird that the forward roof is lighter than the rear. So I was considering just skipping the rear entirely and...

    Consensus on brand and percent window tint for matching rear windows

    I know there are a lot of different brands and percentages one can have for the Tesla Model Y windows but I want to match the rear windows as much as possible so there is a uniform look to the glass. I looked into 3M crystalline but the color was a bit more brown than the factory. Of note, I...

    FML: Defroster ribbon sheared during tint

    Ughhhh. It is what it is. Defroster ribbon sheared during tint. Tinter thought the FM radio ribbons (up top) were for the defroster / defogger, so assumed down low was safe. Also 3rd brake light foam has been pushed/snapped causing light to bleed when brake light is on. Any UK solutions? Think...

    MY window tinting

    Took my MY in to get tinted. They pointed out that the passenger and rear doors have almost no gap whatsoever between the glass and interior material of the doors. They said it will most likely damage the tint because of this. Makes me wonder if that’s the reason why Tesla pre-tints the MY...

    Is this 20% Tint or 35%?

    I asked the tint guy to give me 35% for the full back windshield (so we can still see through the sunroof) and 20% on passenger front and back. This doesn't look like 20% and it seems so light. I took my car to another tint shop to get a quotation and said "this looks like 35%, the brand they...

    Recommended mobile ting shop in the Boston area?

    I’m wondering if anyone has any recommendation for mobile tint shops in the Boston area, where they would come out and tint the windows. It feels a little unsafe to me to have to bring the car into a shop and sit there and wait for an hour or two for the job. Thanks in advance!
