I need some help understanding the various window tint options. Based on my searching here, I am baffled as I had no clue there are options. I just thought window tint was window tint and the only thing that matter was % and whether it was professionally done or not. Clearly I have a lot to learn and I am hoping some of you can help me out.
When I got my window tint done 10 years ago, I paid like 150 for the whole car at 35% all around. I can see spots where it wasnt quality but overall, I was happy. Now, I want dark windows. I am not worried about legal as my state has no issue with rear windows and I was going to get a doctors note for approval on the front. I know its not for everyone but I really prefer darker windows.
Here are my wants:
- Dark (20% maybe?)
- Interior protection
- Reduced heat
I cant really think of anything else. While I had been expecting to pay about $200 total, I find window tint to be important and will pay the crazy amounts I have seen for quality that matches my needs. I live in DE so I get a legit mix of hot summers and cold winters but nothing harsh enough either direction for location to be too much of a factor (i think?).
Anyway, I hope some of you can help me out a bit as I want to get this done. Its the only think my car "needs" in my opinion. Other mods are for fun, this one is important.
