Has anyone on here tinted or thought of tinting their side windows? Any pics?
I think that is a great idea rather than tinting the glass of the car.you know what you should try?
Automatic/electric Tinted Windows (or something like that).
Google electrochromic glass car
you can buy it right now and it's a really nice feature: they replace your windows with their special windows - then you can adjust (via a switch) the level of the tint at your desired level, it will go from No tint to completely dark in 0.1 seconds, with intermediate levels between, of course.
If anyone orders them, please let us know how much is it for the R8 (I couldn't find the price online on any site that sells this stuff).
The same technology can be found in the Ferrari Scaglietti
I just can't find a seller in US right now, but I remember I found (when I searched for it like a month ago) some companies selling it for Audi S5 and other cars in Europe (Italy I think). I am sure they ship ... but can't find the same company right now with google.

Glass is transparent in any setting, with no haze
Only +/- 1.5V DC is required in order to operate. The energy consumption is also very low : <0.1Wh/cycle/m2
The standard design consists of two 2.1 mm thick glasses and a thin interlayer, for a total glazing thickness of 5.8 mm and a total weight of 16 kg for one square metre of glass
Depending on the glass size, a full change in light transmittance can be achieved within 30-60 seconds. This performance time is consistent over a temperature range of -25 °C to 90 °C
Electrochromic glass made its worldwide debut on a Ferrari 575 Limited Edition at the Detroit Motor Show in January 2005. A perfect combination of speed and style.
Not sure tint would be considered bling? Bling is "look at me" 20% to 30% tint on the sides and inside rear window help a lot with cutting down on the suns heat and glare. And in my opinion really adds to the agressive look of the car.Bling my ride - Not a thing I would do
thx for resurrecting a long dead post to try and shill your product!my husband tinted my car with precut tint from northerntint.com and it turned out pretty good. it was pretty cheap and they sell the tools to help you put the tint on easier so it doesnt take forever!!
