Talking Window Tint?

Do you plan on tinting the windows on your Elantra Coupe? If you do what percent tint are your going to apply?

Please list reasons for your choice such as, climate, body color, privacy, etc...

35% tint all around. I had 35% on my previous cars and always loved it. Not too dark and not too light. I hate super dark tints, at night it's nearly impossible to see out the rear view mirror.

Clearly not an Elantra but I plan on doing something along the lines of this:



50 front
35 rear

I find 35% too light. Sun still gets in. I'm a fan of 20% to 15% tints. Ceramic all around.

i go for 15% tints since i hate how the sun heats up my interior so much in the summer (parked outside). some find 15% to be too dark even at night but reverse parking with your windows down makes it easy.

You guys ever heard of that 5% tint that people do the the windshield that blocks 80% of UV and keeps the interior cooler?

i heard there's also lighter tints that do the same job, obviously not as well but not everyone will like driving with super dark windows... Llumar has a good selection

I wonder how windshield tint would hold up to heat during the winter months since the vents will be blasting up from the dash.
