    Tinting roof panels in Phoenix

    I just joined this forum and will probably order a 2023 Model 3 LR AWD in October. I recently had a chance to drive my cousin's model 3 while in Kentucky and loved it.

    Tinting help with battery life?

    Does tinting really help with saving battery life so my m3 sr+ doesn’t have to cool itself down as often? Anyone who didn’t do tinting, do you feel like you’re baking inside? If this is more a cosmetic fix than practical, I want to save my money.

    Self-Tinting - Need Window Up

    With the automated window dropping an inch when the door opens, any trick to moving the windows up 100% when the door is open? I'm planning on tinting the front two windows, but would like to have the window move so I can work with the tint on the lower portion of the window.

    Model Y - does it need a tint for heat?

    Coming from a Model S where without a heat rejecting tint, the a/c had to work overtime to keep up with trying (and failing) to keep the cabin cool.
