One of the main advantages of tinting your car windows is increasing your privacy. People will not be able to see you from the outside and at the same time, when the car is parked, would-be thieves won’t be able to see valuable objects inside. While most motorists are careful not to leave valuable items inside their car, most of us at one time or another were forgetful. It can be a fateful error, one that might be avoided if there’s nothing to see to steal in the first place.
This Lexus CT200h was window tinted with LLumar CTX Ultimate Performance, with a 15-percent shade on the rear and 30 percent on the front. The CT200, like most luxury vehicles, has a really nice interior and upholstery and it would be a shame to let the sun’s ultraviolet rays (UV rays) dry it out and cause damage. Aside from a boost in privacy, darkly tinted windows protect your car’s interior and the long-term re-sale value of the vehicle.
Notice the deep, dark charcoal coloring and how it offsets the bright white color of the body paint. Another benefit to window tinting is adding a trim color element to the vehicle’s exterior appearance. The visual impact can be boosted greatly, as these videos indicate. Without the window tint, you could just see right through the glass, offering no other visual impact.
Above: You can really see the difference the 30-percent shading makes to the front door windows. Just compare them with the windshield. The dark coloring also goes well with the black elements of the vehicle’s grill. Below: All you can make out is the silhouette of the tops of the front seats. Privacy, indeed.
