Hi everyone! I have been considering getting my windows tinted, but I have a couple questions. First, how on EARTH do you tint that back window? I have trouble reaching it to clean it, let alone clean it, then size & apply the tint. I do not plan to do it myself, but want to know what to ensure is done to make sure it's right. Second, when you get your windows tinted, they always tell you not to roll your windows down for a specified timeframe (1 to 3 days?). In a car that automatically lowers the windows when you close the doors, how do you prevent damaging your newly-applied window tint?

Hi. I have gotten the windows of my Abarth tinted. The back window can be done although it is pretty difficult. You can remove the wind screen and work in the car or there is a way to fold the top back and expose the back window. Keep in mind that the the defroster wire is not detachable so it will be impossible to tint under the wire on the driver side. You can have a piece of black vinyl put on the outside so that it hides it. It is small enough to where you will not notice it at all. Most places say to not roll your windows down for three days. I have done it once by accident and it didn't affect it, however there is always the possibility of it tearing coming up if it hasn't set properly.

Any pics?

Does anyone have any pictures of the windows done already. I'm not sure if it's worth it or not. My last car the windows made it look more sporty.

Hope this helps.
Gee. They are dark. They'd get you a defect notice here in Aus. We only allowed to block 30% of the light.
