Hi there! First, I just want to say I am thrilled to have found a message board devoted to window tinting. I have been having some nagging doubts about my new tints, and I just want to get some opinions....

About a month ago, my hubby surprised me with me dream car...a C70 Volvo convertible! It is a very light bone color (almost white) with a tan top. It had no tints whatsoever. Well as another "surprise" he went and had it tinted for me. I feel the tints do not match the car. He went "1 degree beyond legal" so I am not sure if you know what that means (I guess it varies from state to stae, right?) Anyway, they are pretty darn dark and pretty darn black. I feel it takes away from the car, makes it look less elegant, and kind of cheapens the look. Is there a standard you would put on a car that color? Is there something out there that does not look as dark but still blocks out a lot of sun? I live in South FL and the sun is freakin' BRUTAL.

Or an I just being a crazy chick that should accept the tints that I have? :wall Thanks for any input and help.

All the ingredients that make up a mistake that have burned the appearance of the new car for you.

Sounds like you would have been better suited with a 35% film all round.

I've done quite a few of the C70's where we had them as a limited edition celebrating their 70 years in Oz and the decree was to film them in nothing more than a 35 to keep the classy/prestige look of the vehicle.

That we did!

Illegal films void insurance claims if ever that was to unfortunately happen and police can issue tickets and you pay. :wall

in florida dark film is allowed on passanger cars, I think the rear half is 15%.So you might have something pretty dark on there.But, if you don't like it , you don't like it. So no matter what we say, you can't change a womens mind anyway. good luck

Haha, there is always a snarky poster on every board! :lol2 We also have a lot of overcast days here, and dusk is a perfect time to drop the top!

Thanks to all. So it seems 35% is pretty much the film of choice for this car. Is it a huge deal to remove and replace tints? Now I just have to figure out how to break it to my hubby. I think that will be the hardest part. Maybe I will try to work in Devil's point about insurance or somethin'.

Again, thanks for the replies, I will keep checking the thread.
