Window tinting

Has anyone had their windows tinted yet?

I did the top of my Windshield yesterday. Came out fine. In CA, you're only allowed to tint the top 4". Used a 20% tint. Almost don't need the sun visors anymore.

I have tinted on all my previous cars. I have the pano roof and after 1500 miles I don't think I need to tint (seems to be a light tint sides and back anyway).

I tinted my windows this weekend. Living in south central Texas it gets 100+ regularly in the summer. Placed Winco IR tint. Wanted huper optic but the tinting specialist did not recommend it due to a high propensity of ghost images seen from the curved nature of the model S windows. Looks great so far. 30 on the front (Texas law) 20 surround. Comes with lifetime non-transferable warranty against color change, bubbling,.... Car is sitting now because I should not open the windows for 5 days afterwards and the model s windows slide up and down about 1 inch when the car door opens and closes.

4" is conservative. The CA reg used to be (still?) that the driver's view of side view mirrors cannot be impeded. TM mirrors are large to eliminate blind spots; consequently, for me at 5'10" that means driver side pocket of 6" high x 16" long and a passenger side pocket of 6" x 11.5" (call it 12"). Rather than a sharp corner, I prefer a 1/2" radius of curvature (quarter size). For symmetry, consider both at 6"x16". Better yet, use a tape measure to find the pockets your tallest driver needs (as I did for me).

4" front sun visor means about 8" on the slant, but I will only do 6" on the front slant.

If it is about IR heat rejection, then Photo Sync 65 is essentially the same as its darker flavors, per

@DavidG

Did you get PhotoSync? What do you think so far?

We tinted our car within 2 days of ownership..18 % on back window to match pano roof..40% on rear back..50% on front...we are getting 70% iris in the ceramic tint on the pano for the heat resistance provides...tint protects the interior and looks sharp ...

With 70% on the pano we will still be able to see out during day/night
