Why You Should Tint Your Car Windows

Written by Car Talk. Posted in Auto custom interior, Jbl, Marine audio

When people think about detailing or upgrading their car they usually think about upgrading their audio system, installing a backup camera or getting custom interiors. While those upgrades are cool and definitely add value to your car, there is a small but significant detail upgrade you should consider looking into – window tinting.
Most cars these days have tinted windows already installed. They are an excellent safety feature that provides coverage from the sun and disguises valuables that have been left in the car. Window tint gives any car a cool edge.
While it is legal in all 50 states to have some window tinting, each state has a different law about how dark your window tint can get, which is called visible light transmission percentage. This can easily be researched online before you go into a shop to get your windows tinted. It’s safe to have your windows tinted a little bit above the lowest percentage so that there isn’t any reason for concern.
Whenever you detail the inside of your car, you want to make sure that it is kept in pristine condition. A solid window tint can block out the sun’s rays to prevent cloth or leather seats from fading, which will end up saving you money since you don’t have to ever worry about replacing your interior seats. Your car will sell better and faster if it has a nice tint and unfaded materials.
The tint in your windows also protects you from the sun. If you have to drive long distances for work or you like to take frequent road trips, having a strong window tint will protect you from long exposure to the sun’s harmful rays. It will also help keep your car cooler, which means you will save energy and gas by not having to use the air conditioning as much. It will also dim bright lights that reflect off of windows and make it less difficult for you to see when you are driving in the direction of the sun.
Window tinting is an investment that will make your car look cool and keep you and your valuables safe. It is a feature that will pay off in the long run.
