Here’s a scientific fact most people are unaware of: U.S. drivers have a higher rate of skin cancer on the left side due to the positioning while driving. A USA Today report in June 2011 noted, “New research suggests that people in the USA are more likely to develop skin cancer, such as melanoma and merkel cell carcinoma, on the left side of their bodies. Driving may be to blame, because the left arm receives more UV, say researchers from the University of Washington in Seattle, who analyzed cancer cases in a government database.”

It is difficult to get sunburned through your car windows, but harmful ultraviolet rays (UV rays) do penetrate, which can contribute to premature aging and skin cancer. By installing a high-quality window tint film like the lines offered by LLumar or Huper Optik you can block 99.9 percent of UV rays. In the top video below (on our window tint installation on a Mercedes C300), compare the unimproved tint of the front windshield with the darker front side windows after they were tinted by Window Tintz technicians:

A brief closer look at those door windows and the dark window tint shade this owner selected:

Window Tinting for Protection, Privacy, Polish

Mercedes-Benz luxury vehicles are known for strong, lasting engines and an exterior chic that exudes wealth and success. The Mercedes C300 fits the bill, with its crafty front and hood look, and broadly modern exterior appearance. Notice the “infinity” transition from the front windshield to the roof.

Still, by adding some darkness to the windows, the exterior appearance was improved. The darker windows contrast well with the softer and lighter paint color, almost pulling some texture out of it. Darker window tint shades can contrast well with light-colored vehicle paint jobs.

The darker windows also will provide significant benefits inside. The window tint will block UV rays and therefore protect the upholstery from drying and cracking. The tinting also will keep the interior cooler more often — meaning savings on energy to run the air conditioning system.

This Mercedes model is known to provide a really comfortable ride. Now that ride has been made even better with the added privacy and protection from the high-quality window tint film.

End Result

Notice how the dark windows kind of pull out the dark lines around the headlamps, the blackness of the tires, and the front grill.
