Somebody told me that you shouldnt tint the hatch if you have the little weather strips. Cause if for whatever reason the tint starts to peel or bubble the strips would come off too. I dunno if its true or not idunno

that's why you get it tinted somewhere with a lifetime warranty. If it does peel, they'll replace it for free grin

That would not be true...i used to tint professionally...Actually tint will not stick to that and a lot of tinters won't cover it with warrenty if that comes off.. grin thumbsup

considering the fact that your car is black...or carbon blue..i can't tell, i think the darker it is the cooler it will look

i got 5% in the back and 15% in the front. looks good to me, i think 15 is perfect for the front b/c its not too dark yet not too light. and the contrast between 15 and 5 isnt too much.
