    I’m pretty happy with how it came out. The new wheels make it pop too. I’d like to repaint the red strip possibly a little darker tho... Anyway, does anybody know a good place to get blacked out/darker KIA logos?

    For anyone who wants to know what 35% tint looks like. The guy at the tint shop had a light meter that measured the rears at 28%, and once the fronts were installed they were 31%. (Windows are slightly tinted from factory so installing 35% ends up being 31%)

    So i live in ny and now part of getting an inspection is checking window tint. My front door windows are a little to dark to pass so i have to remove it to pass. I like my 50 tint and my choices are paying a guy another 100 bucks a year to redo it. Or try some of that pre cut diy tint for 15...

    In case anyone is wondering. I had a local shop match the factory tints on my 2017. They used a machine to scan the factory tint on the front and rear windows. Windshield is 70% Front windows are 70% Rear windows are 26% I asked them to match up the fronts with the rears. Here is a before and...

    Hey all :), Havent been around here the past few months. Any suggestions on Front Window tint? do it ? or nah? A local reputable shop here quoted me $60 for the front 2 windows. It would match the factory color tint but be just a little bit lighter.

    Yesterday I put some yellow vinyl tint onto my headlights. I've always loved the way yellow tint looked on white cars. (@funky_mac on Instagram a perfect example) and I finally decided to go ahead and do it thanks to @k2_jay on IG persuading me to go for it. I really love it. It's pretty cool...

    My Soul is parked outside all year long. I was surprised at the amount of sun fade of the dogs-tooth? pattern on the upper front seats. So I'm looking for ideas or suggestions on tinting windows to slow the damage down. As the privacy glass doesn't seem to offer any protection against sun damage...

    So I tinted my headlights with Lamin-X grey film. It's quite thick and should offer some extra stone chip protection. Cost me $125 to install in Mississuaga. What do you think? The stripes I did myself.

    Is the Soul window tinting on on the inside or inside the glass? Somebody told me it was inside the glass but I can't find the thread now. I need to get some stubborn adhesive off the inside of the window and want to make sure I won't damage the tint. Thanks Sonic

    Have an appointment to have my windows tinted tomorrow. Does anyone know what the tint levels are from the factory? I keep reading 20%, but there is no way my car only lets in 20% light thru the back windows. Maybe this was pior to 2013 or just in some states? Im looking to go like 60% on the...

    Ok, so I got my windows tinted by a local guy who has a web site, and business cards and the whole deal. Only one positive Yelp review but that was enough for me to take the plunge cause he did it while I was at work. The cost was $180 and I even tipped him $20. I had all four windows the mini...
