    Great article! So many people don’t know there are so many different options on the intensity of the window film you can put on your windows. The side windows, the back window and the windshield all have different options to choose from. It is also important to know your state laws on how dark is too dark, so you don’t mess around and get a ticket.

    I think it would be nice to get medium tinting for my car windows. That would still give me plenty of tinting. It’s nice that this can block 99% of harmful UV rays too, like you said.
