Question Convincing the olds!!! :P

hey guys,
well im 17 and i want to get the darkest legal tint for my EBII, i dont wanna go into the cost and the time im getin it and all that...

i need strong points to convince my parents to let me get it, because they are saying stuff like "it restricts your vision at night"

i was thinking...

1) reduces the glare of the sun
2) i wont get burnt!
3) car wont get hot in summer
4) security

any suggestions would be great thanks

Daniel

They don't put it on the windscreen so who cares?

Re: Convincing the olds!!! :P

If a window is broken, the tint holds the glass in place instead of showering the occupants of the car with glass.

Happened to me one night, when some kids were throwing stones at passing cars. Lucky for me, the driver's side window was hit, and instead of showering me in glass, the tint held the glass together. Lucky for the kids, they got away. This time.

Re: Convincing the olds!!! :P

1: keeps most heat out

2: keeps lots of uv out especially the darkest legal, i have darkest legal on my car and i would have to say it was well worth the $340 i paid. But no doubt prices have gone down so it would be cheaper.

3: No body can really see into the car, day or night, unless they look through the windscreen.

4: it makes the car look sleek.

5: i must admit it is a bit darker at night especially when i am driving under a shopping centre carpark, but meh down goes the window up go the tunes.

But yeah man its called the darkest legal, because one reason it is legal so if thats all your parents are worried about tell them there is nothing to worry about.

Yeah, we had darkest legal on the old ED falcon and yeah... at first it is a little weird seeing out the back at night - but your eyes adjust and get used to it. Plus it saves your eyes from d**heads with highbeams on your rear

Re: Convincing the olds!!! :P

The darkest legal isnt that dark really, show them an illegally tinted car then show them darkest legal and they will soon realise they are making a big deal out of nothing.

Just say it keeps the car cooler, it stops the interior from fading as fast cos of the UV rays, it helps glare from other cars and stuff like that :)

Re: Convincing the olds!!! :P

You have to ask your parents permission???

And yeah, there is a legal limit to how dark it can be. All three of our cars have window tint on them, and they're all fine at night.
