    Tint or graphic

    I finally get to tint the windows. I found a graphic I would like applied to the back window. My tint guy says that he can tint my design of choice in instead of an actual sticker of it.

    Bonus-I can see out of the entire back window, no blockage.

    Con- Tinting in the desing seems lame to me for some reason, yet I can't explain why.

    Your opinions please?

    It doesn't matter that we can't explain why, it just is.

    The real con will be having a giant graphic sticker on your back window. If you are dead set on wanting the graphic, have the guy tint it in. You can consider it "stealth" and it won't draw any unnecessary attention.

    I am going to have to KISS this one, meaning "Keep It Simple Stupid" Something my old diesel teacher taught us. The simplest option is often the best. I would go with a tint, no graphic.

    Oh and I know its personal preference...but I think graphics on the back windows more or less went out with 2001. I used to have one on my Integra back in HS cause it was cool then. But I think hype is over. I look back and wondered why I had a big dragon decal on the back...not to mention the corny saying on the front like a visor

    Just do tint, keep it simple and classy

    I had a Pornstar Racing decal stretched over the top of the windshield of my 89 Plymouth Colt. Obviously it was meant as a joke, but I rocked it like there was no tomorrow!

    Decided to go with the tint and the design in the tint.
    I must be a product of the 80's, twice today I have heard I'm out dated and both not in a good way
    Thanks all for the helpfull advice.
