    V coupe ... Winshield tint ... Problems anyone?

    Ok ... I've never had a problem with any of my cars having windshield tinted... My V is giving me problems... I have 5% on all my windows and I have my windshield full tint at 35% ... It's been tinted for about 1 1/2 months now and it's SO blurry... Night is so bad.. Blurry like drank 48 beers in one night and should not be driving bad... I've taken it back to the tint shop several times and they keep telling me its the curve of the windshield....wondering has anybody else ever had this problem?! Experience is greatly appreciated!

    Sounds like a poor install. I'd get it taken off and take it elsewhere.

    Just had them redo today, giving them one more chance to make right if not they're paying to have installed by someone else.

    Though it may be illegal having it that dark... I usually find the cops just staring to see the car... Most violations are usually overlooked speeding included
    It does look bad ass all blacked out... Just may have to leave it a day cruiser only If it doesn't work itself out ;(
