If you’re interested in customizing your car, but you don’t want to spend a fortune or make a huge commitment, a good place to start is with a window tint. Not only will it change the look of your car, but it also offers protection from the blazing sun.

There are a number of different types of window tint, or window tint film, available to consumers nowadays. The way it works is that the tints contain polyester in them in order to create that dark look. The darker you go, the more polyester is in the film. Tinting your car windows will help keep the heat and sun damage to a minimum and also offer a level of privacy.

Keep the following things in mind with regards to window tint:

  • Type of film used to tint: The different types of film available are ceramic film, hybrid film, metalized film, and dyed film. Dyed films tends to be the most common.

  • Know the law: Before you choose your window tint shade, look into what the laws are in your area. Sometimes a window tint can be deemed too dark, so it's important to find this out ahead of time.

  • Requires detail: Installing window tint requires quite a bit of precision so you don’t end up with bumps and bubbles. It’s usually the kind of job better left to the professionals.

  • Warranty: If you are having the window tint installed by a professional, be sure to ask about their warranty. This will ensure that you are happy with the job that has been done.

If you’re looking for added privacy or protection from sun damage for the interior of your car, window tint may be the best way to go.

BMW 325i - Brake Pads Replacement (Front) - Redwood City, California
I had a few mechanics from YM and _all_ of them arrived late (some even 2 hours late) , but not Jose! He arrived right on time! I gave him the keys and let him do his job. I am a curious person so I asked him a few questions about his techniques and he had no problem answering them all with detailed explanations! He did run into a problem on my car because of stripped bolts, but he literally went above and beyond and found a way to remove it. Best mechanic ever.
