So I was all ready to get my new car tinted,but when I picked it up today I noticed it had some solartint from the factory. Anyone know if it is any good? Though I do live in AZ, perhaps next summer I'll get it tinted to the max legal.

That solartint isn't really tint. It's an spf protector built into the glass when it's made. It has an spf of 157. No heat rejection capabilities. And you don't remove it before tinting with a window film because it's built into your window glass.

I just got my car back today from the tint shop. I'll post pics tomorrow. I got 32% all around. Close enough to 35% like I wanted.

ha thanks guys. Going to re-tint some of it. Right now it's 50% front and 13% all the rest. I'm going to get it all set to 13%, including the windshield.

Just put my winter tires on this morning, actually. That means in Spring I'll be getting some black wheels to go with the summer tires. That and the new MFT update will make my car look and act much better =P

Also, intake and exhaust changes are coming sometime soon. Not going to make it sound ricer, but just a bit more rumble.

Thanks haha. Most of my friends are Italian and they call me "Sie German" (imagine it with a thick German accent). Seemed natural to have a license plate that shows my nickname

Ok, I took some pictures when I got gas today. Wow, snow! But ya also installed some molded splash guards/mud flaps on the car before taking it out of the garage and into the snow. They work great! wow!










Third picture shows some tiny bubbling but it's only been a day so I am hoping they will fade. Plus the car has been in a dark garage all day and night so no sun to bake the tint in yet and get those bubbles out.
