If you want to tint the car’s glass, there are many options available to you. Tinted windows are becoming increasingly popular with drivers everywhere – and whether you want them for the additional privacy they offer, the protection they give from blazing heat and harmful UV rays, or simply the sleek, polished look they give to your car, it’s always an option to tint your side windows yourself.
Although tinting car windows can be a difficult task for beginners, the following steps will help facilitate the process, and allow you to give your vehicle a fresh new look.
But, first – Find out about car tinting regulations in your state. Most states have specific regulations on tinted windows, as dark-tinted front windows make it difficult for law enforcement to identify hit-and-run drivers, or to establish eye contact with suspects during traffic stops.
When you determine what the law permits in your country, next step is the choice of windows shading technology. The most expensive option is the complete replacement of all the glasses. Few of them choose this option, while the majority of interested ones opt for foils, Coating tint or Film tint. Options are inexpensive but require professional mounting.
Somewhat expensive, but the simplest option is dimmed plexiglass. Compared with the sun protection film is plexiglass easier to assemble and perfect results, without bubbles, gaps or scratches.
Several companies offer ready-made cut-out plexiglass panels for each vehicle type, even for Saab cars. It is only necessary that the ready-made panels be inserted into the frames of the glass, in interior of car. Also on that car the installation and removal was quick if needed and fitted well. The best thing is that you couldn’t see back from outside and could remove those easily if needed.
For example, this option for Saab 9-3 Sportcombi will cost you around € 180, which is however cheaper than embedding foils, and of course much simpler.
