Curious about anyone's experience with after market tint products, longevity and whether you're happy with yours?

i think the best way to go is factory glass. It doesn't have that film look to it. it may be more expensive but it's worth it. plus it's 100% legal to do the whole car. if the glass itself is tinted the cops can't do anything, but if it is film they can make you take it off.

good idea. Maybe I can put film on the rear windows and factory glass on the front windows. I'll check the pricing.

bitcore will become famous soon enough bitcore will become famous soon enough
remember, unless the tinting place really knows what they are doing, the front and back windows may look a little different from each other. Be sure to make that a point with whoever you decide to get it tinted from.

I really don't want to replace the back window. I'll price the others and go from there. Thanks for the tips.

yeah dude, it's legal...above the state % limit. here in utah-wether tinted glass or film-if the pimple faced dweeb at the emissions and inspection place tests it and it's below 50% on the front they will not pass it. the state doesn't care if you scrape it, remove the glass or whatever. unless you know someone it WILL NOT pass the safety inspection. but that may just be here in utah-they are anal about all kinds of weird shit here.
