The Benefits of Car Window Tinting & Tinted Windows

While window tinting offers a certain aesthetic value, it also provides many benefits to both your car and your personal health.  Our window tinting film can help protect your windshield from debris and small rocks. The film adhesive also minimizes shattering in case of an accident, helping to protect the driver and rest of the vehicle from damage and shards of glass.

Summers in San Diego can be quite brutal and window tinting helps block out the sun’s harmful UV rays. Not only does a high-quality window tint job help preserve the interior of your car including the dashboard and leather seats by preventing it from fading and cracking in the hot sun, it also protects your skin from sun damage.

Window Tinting Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have some unanswered questions about window tinting? The window tinting experts at Car Audio City in National City answer some of the most frequently asked questions about window tinting.

How Long Does Auto Film Installation Take?

For Most Vehicles, Installing Auto Tint Should Take One Or Two Hours. Additional Time May Be Required For Larger Vehicles, Those With Multiple Windows, And Cars With Existing Auto Film That Requires Removal. 

Can I Use My Windows As Normal After An Auto Tint Installation?

In The First 24 Hours Following Auto Film Installation, It's Important Not To Roll Down Your Windows As The Auto Tint Begins To Cure. After That, You May Use Any Automated Window Features Normally, Without Fear Of Damaging The Window Tinting. That Includes Window Auto-defrosters.

What If There Are Bubbles Or Haze In My Auto Film?

Do Not Be Alarmed: For The First Days And Week Following Installation, It's Normal To Notice A Foggy Or Even Bubbly Appearance In Auto Tint While It Cures. Thanks To Our Dry, Sunny Weather, In San Diego Window Tinting Tends To Cure Faster, Within A Few Days. But During Cool And Wet Times, This Process Could Take As Long As A Month. In The Unlikely Event The Auto Film Doesn't Clear Up In That Time, The Car Audio City Installation Warrantee Covers A Replacement.

How Long Will Window Tinting Last?

These Days, Well-made Auto Tint Uses Materials Designed Resist Fading In The Sun. That Means An Auto Film Installation Should Maintain Its Integrity For More Than A Decade, As Long As It's Protected From Contact With Hard Or Sharp Objects. At Car Audio City In San Diego, We Avoid Outdated And Poor Quality Window Tinting That Peels, Cracks, And Fades Over Time, And Choose Reputable Brands Protected By A Manufacturer's Warranty.

What's The Best Way To Clean Auto Film?

The Most Important Thing To Remember When Cleaning Window Tinting Is To Not Use Any Cleaner Containing Ammonia! Several Brands Of Dedicated Auto Film Cleaners Are Available At Auto Parts Retailers, And Any Of Them Will Work Fine. However, In A Pinch, You Can Always Just Use Dish Soap And Water.

What Are The Laws About Auto Tint In San Diego?

The State Of California Restricts The Amount Of Window Tinting Allowed In Your Vehicle. First, The Windshield Itself Cannot Be Tinted Other Than A Transparent Strip Across The Top Five Inches, To Prevent Glare. 

Driver And Passenger Side Windows May Be Tinted, But Only With An Auto Film With A Minimum Of 70-percent Vlt (Visible Light Transmission), Meaning At Least 70-percent Of Visible Light Passes Through. The Back Windows And Rear Windshield May Be Tinted Without Restriction. However, Any Vehicle With Tinted Windows Must Have Dual Side Mirrors With At Least 200 Feet Of Visibility.
Within San Diego, Colored Window Tints Are Not Allowed, And Drivers Must Show Proof Their Auto Tint Manufacture Is Certified Within The State. Car Audio City Only Installs Certified Auto Tint In San Diego.
