    Cool Why do get your Cars Tinted?

    Guys what r the reasons why u get your rides tinted?
    Do u get it fully tinted or just a few glasses?
    If yes, What shade do you use.?
    Do u face difficulty when reversing?
    Do u think the ban on tints is just?

    This is just for the sake of knowing peoples opinion. This thread in anyway is not promoting any illegal Activity nor encouraging people to commit illegal. Please keep it that way.

    Near airport. Travel mostly on shahrae faisal towards tariq road or defence.

    Yes they don't care. But i still feel blinds are better compared to being fully exposed.

    Sorry to hear about your relative.

    May Allah keep us all safe.

    Tints look gorgeous with smoked head and tail lamps. First got jet black on civic but later moved to lighter due to visibility issues

    It's not tints its called wrap. Only and only use 3M wrap on your cars roof. Will cost around 5k. It is applied by a professional by the help of heat gun.
    Remember. A cheap quality wrap can ruin your cars paint job so be careful.

    In due time, I would suggest that you change the title to Tints & Wraps or something like that. Haven't come across a single thread about car wraps yet.

    Plasti-dip is much better than having your car wrapped in my opinion.

    My experience
    1) was growing up in my teens, we had a khyber took the khyber with the driver got rear quaters and rear windscreen het black tinted and a silver antenna for looks. That was new hear night too much extra police.

    Had a hard scold by my father. After a few days got it removed.

    Got my 2002 vitz rear windows and rear windscreen tinted lightly just for looks looked decent. But with time they got blur removed them and thot removed gave a wholelot clear vision which was excellent.

    Then got only quater glasses tinted to match black shades. But ever since I'm into practical driving shades/tints are a hurdle in my driving. Although there are times when the sun is exactly on the driver side window and I feel like having a shade.
    But sun glasses do the job perfectly.

    So I guess tints are for looks only.

    My recent visit to china 99% cars are lightly tinted all screens and all windows probably to keep the car cool. That too in 3M tint paper.

    My 2007 vitz has rear windows tinted. I have been stopped 3-4 times and asked to lower windows and then let go. So iguess tinting is a stupid idea and its a hassle to deal with these *******'s. So keeping clear is the best idea unless ur involved in something illegal
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.
