Bought my tC yesterday and lovin it. Had a truck broken in to next to my car... I was reading on one of the stickies about the tint holding the window together yeah... exactly what happened the whole thing fell out and it was actually about an inch under my car. Mine is FM so it freaked me the F*ck out cause the glass on the ground looked like the same color as my car so i thought the guy had hit my car and ripped off a chunk. Unfortunately it did scratch the bottom a little bit which i was SUPER pissed off about because the car has like 50 miles on it... 3-4 months from now sure whatever it's hardly noticeable but my second day? Jesus christ come on people!
Anyway, I need some help... I was reading that sticky post and read about the whole tint thing. Well I'm taking my car to get tinted on monday and I just wanna know what you guys recommend on tint that is still good and looks clean but not too dark. When I had my civic before this car it was 10 on the back and quarter and 15 on the sides, granted I don't keep anything in my car and never had a problem I still don't want to run into any problems. The place I work at is actually a nicer part of town but for some reason there are chain break-in's all the time. More on the tint darkness I actually couldn't stand having 10 on the back after I got it because you really can't see a damn thing a night time.
BTW, keep in mind I live in Houston, TX so... we're tryin to keep some heat out.
Few noobie questions:
Can you open the trunk from the inside? If so WHERE?
I saw someone say they installed amber lights on the cup holders.. anyone know more about that?
Also I saw a few pics online of chrome pedals that seemed to fit perfect with the stock stuff; anyone have any links? I know on the scion site they use OBX which is like 80 bucks but 40 on ebay.
And of course if anyone has any recommendations for the whole tint thing I would appreciate it.
After reading that link up there I'm thinking more like 30 on the back/quarter and 40 on the sides... What do you guys think?
Oh yeah and my digital camera deciding to blow up today so no pics yet, bummer.
