    Just picked up a Blk/Blk charger and wanted to get some opinions on window tint. I do like window tint but I am wondering if it may be too much on a triple Blk car.(Paint interior wheels). I'm not a fan of the "murdered out" look. So leaving the windows clear may be the best option for me. Opinions please...

    Maybe just a light tint to cut the heat and save your interior. Could do rims later .

    Tint. The sun coming in is a mutha! Plus there's things I'd like to do in my Cat that I don't want people to know about (sing, stuff my face, pick my nose, drive naked, etc).

    Someone's been watching :rolleyes:. For me, the best thing about tinting is the reduction of heat induced by the sun...otherwise, especially at night, windows up, rear view can be tricky in certain road/weather conditions. I don't think you can make a poor choice either way, frankly. Your HC looks great from jump...

    I put a ceramic tint on my red w/ black interior just to help with the heat from the sun. I immediately noticed a significant change for the better. Took my 2008 pick-up back the next week to have tint put on its windows.

    Tint. Black car with black interior gets really hot. If you don't like the blacked out look you could go for something like I did, the 3M crystalline 40. It is a lighter tint but does a better job of blocking out some of the heat (at least much better than no tint).

    Most dealers here pre-install tint on all their inventory cars. I just wish they did more than like 50% or whatever they default to, because it's not quite dark enough for my taste. I don't want limo tint or anything, but lowest legal tint should be the default imho, which I think is around 30% on the front sides and anything you want on the rear sides and back. So kind of wish they did 35% all around then, instead of 50%-60% light transfer which is too bright.

    I'd tint it for the sake of practicality, it helps keep the sun at bay. 40% looks good, as long as it's not the purple stuff. I went with the Crystaline.
