I'm thinking about getting my windows tinted. Is there any thing special you have to use the clean the inside of the windows? And how long will it last?
Make sure that the cleaner does NOT have amonia in it. Windex makes a cleaner safe for window tint. A microfiber towel helps too.
A good quality brand of tint will last longer than you will own the car.
I went 20% all around and love it. My tint guy said they don't really enforce tint laws in Colorado. Send me a PM if you want the name of a good shop in Ft. Collins. I haven't had to use anything harsher than a microfiber towel to clean it.Cool thanx. This will be the first time having windows tinted. I'm thinking about having the back ones blacked out and the rivers doors made legal. I just don't know if it would look right. So It might get all of them state legal.
At 20%, I have a little trouble if it's completely dark outside. If there are street lights, or something for the reverse lights to bounce off of, I don't really have a problem. You should be fine in town, but if you like to drive in reverse out in the country you might have to roll down your window.One more do you have any trouble seeing out the windows at night? Like backing out of a parking space in a parking lot.
LOL thanx. No I don't drive around in reverse. I guess it cant be any worse then it is now. Every time I park some A hole in a big SUV parks right next to me any I cant see crap any way. Half the time around here I'm backing out praying no one hits me.At 20%, I have a little trouble if it's completely dark outside.

I wanted to be legal (MN) on the front doors, and have all the windows look the same, so I went 50% all around. I had 2 cars done that way before.
50% will give you no privacy, but it does reduce the heat gain, and it is all you need to cut light glare from the back and side.
If I lived in CO, where 35% is legal in front, I would have used that. I would not have gone darker even if it was legal.
I went 20% on the sunroof, and glad I did.
