Got my windows Tinted

Got my back 5 windows done today! Thought I would share how it looks on the Dynamic Blue Mica. I like how the roof has that floating effect now.

Looks sharp. Ties in with the black.

Too bad you guys can't tint the driver/passenger windows.

Thanks dj999. Yeah, I understand the reasoning behind the no tint on the front windows. However it would look even better if I could have all the windows just as black as the back windows. Especially being a Ginger and how easily I burn haha. I will find someone that installs the clear UV window film soon.

The tinted windows do look nice. I like how it makes the difference between the windows and that black body panel basically seamless.

You can see a big difference between the front and rear passenger windows. I'm wondering if it would have all fit together a little better if you went with just a tiny bit lighter tint so the difference wasn't as much.

I thought about going a bit lighter, I am so used to dark tint as all my vehicles have been this dark. I thought about doing a light tint to the front, however with the dark interior and the black windows it would make the front look a lot darker than normal. I may still do so, just trying to make sure my fiance doesn't get tickets when she drives

You can always try lightly tinting the front windows.

Jealous of your ride. And so going to be getting mine tinted. I was on the fence and then I looked into it and read all of the horror stories and decided it wasn't for me, but the pics you posted make me want to give it a go.

Baystate Blue, the ink I love and now the color of the car I drive.

Looks good. Plan on tinting our ceramic silver as soon as we get it. Lucky for me, illinois changed their front window law a few years ago.

Baystate, what were the horror stories you have heard? The only issues i've had with tint was tickets due to the front windows on my old car. I had a hrd time driving for the first few weeks with the windows not being tinted on my CX-3. It is worth doing, especially with our dark interior. Helps keep the vehicle cooler and also a bit more private.
