Tint melbourne

Which Tint would you guys go for and where would you get it done at? The glare from other cars headlights at night is such a pain.

Not quite sure what you mean glare from other cars? Do you mean in the front window? Because no one tints the front windscreen, it's illegal.

I have never had to get tinting done, but if I had to, I wouldn't go to a shop unless they provided a lifetime guarantee since there's enough of them out there offering it nowadays.

Shouldn't cost more than $300 or so I believe for standard dark tinting.

The glare from the side mirrors at night can be a little bit annoying. Not sure what I can do about it except tinting the side windows.

The dot matrix are the little black printed dots around the edges of the glass on the windows.

If you look at the top edge of the rear window closely you will see patterns of small black dots.

This pattern is on the inside of the window, and it stops window tint from sticking to the glass uniformly, creating uneven tinting viewed from the outside.

You can always put black vinyl on the top section of the rear window.

my cars tinted and I always wondered why the top 1cm was not tinted, I thought its cos the tint could get stuck when the windows closes and come off eventually. lol
