Re: Window tinting

Re: Window tinting

Are the dog chewable

Re: Window tinting

I would deffo say window film in the darkest you can get, i did 3 years ago and whilst the dogs have sratched it you cant really see the sratches.
So i would highly recommend window film.

Re: Window tinting

I feel keeps the sun out of the car, Think the dogs certainly benifit from having the windows tinted.
Car has aways felt slightly cooler to me but it was only done for the dogs.

Re: Window tinting

A firm called "Mr Tint" (Alexandra Parade, Glasgow) have tinted two of my high-roof Doblos in the last 4 months. Results are excellent. Can't recommend them enough. Cost was 150 for the first Doblo (6-windows, but not the 4 skylights, windscreen or front side windows) and 190 for the second Doblo (10 windows - included the sky lights this time).

I also have curtains inside, but might change those for black foam sheets that I will cut to size and push in place.
