According to my 2008 DTS LUX III owner's manual, we are not advised to tint the windows. This is apparently because of the antennas in the back window...or is it the defroster in the back window? Anyway, I am sure some of you have tinted your windows and I was wanting to get your opinions.
Thanks in advance for any input!

I have 25 on all my side windows and 10 Limo tint on the back window.
It has been on there since a few days after I bought the car new.
I have never had any problems with it.

Yep... they are CHROME...:cool2:
The 9 spoke, 18 inch CHROME wheels...like the ones on my car.. were only available on the Performance model.

Ive got limo tint or 5% all around and i have zero issues with the radio. Does any one know if you tint the windscreen if it will affect the rainsense system?

Hey guys. I have all my windows tinted including the windshield. It doesn't affect the automatic rain wipers. I believe they don't want you to tint the Windows because it WILL mess up your gps signal and the gps will not know where you are at. I know this for a fact.

Had mine tinted on way home from the dealership. Also us a folding, sun shield for windshield. Car is almost as cool as sitting under a tree, in parking lot. Also interior loves no sun damage.

I've got VA standard tint which is next to nothing. No issues with gps or radio reception. Sure wished I lived in a state that allowed limo tint.

No state really allows it, most likely. Some just don't bother with enforcing it.

Many people have very dark tint here, it isn't legal but I don't know anyone that has ever been pulled over for it. And there are certain inspection sticker places that will ignore the tint. I had 20% on just about every car I've ever owned. It isn't limo dark but is much darker than what is legal. I was never bothered about it. Even if I was stopped for a traffic violation the police never mentioned it.

I realize there's a temperature reason for the tint. But I always thought now that I've reached the point in my life that I can afford a Cadillac, the last thing I want to do is prevent people from clearly seeing who's driving it !!

Superjim, are those bugs or is that the paint? I am asking because I have the same esthetic problem on my bumper (paint). I've got to get mine touched up, it bothers me sooooo much!

There is NOT ONE DING or ROCK CHIP on the paint on the front end.
That is bugs... LOL
The whole front end is covered with 3M clear plastic.

That pic was taken at Eglin AFB in Florida 3 years ago... I was on vacation and stopped by there... I was stationed there in 1964 and 1965.

Here is a pic took a few months ago...It had about 100,000 miles on it then.

God Bless you for your service.
Thanks for the info! I had no idea that was invented! I am now considering that 3M later down the road, but I'll have to drive to Louisville.
