    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!
