About Me

Affording Auto Repair

I wish that I knew how to do my own auto repairs, but I’m just not mechanically inclined. I’ve tried to learn to do basic things, but so far it just hasn’t worked out for me. Since I can’t save money by doing my auto repairs myself, I try to save money as best I can by shopping around for the best deals in auto repair in my town. I’ve also learned that even if I can’t fix my own car problems, I can educate myself about them. You’d be surprised how many repair shops will try to charge you for unnecessary repairs. I’ve learned enough that I understand how to spot those unnecessary charges and avoid them, and I stick with the shops that I know aren’t trying to cheat me.

Why You Need Tinted Windows

It may seem like a strictly cosmetic issue to some, but tinted windows have very important benefits that you'll want to take notice of. You want to be safe, you want to be healthier, and you want to be comfortable. Tinted windows can help with all three of these common desires. 


When a thief is looking for a car to break into, they're less likely to look for a car with tinted windows. This is simply because it's harder to see what is inside of a car with tinted windows. If someone is going to take the risk of breaking into someone's car, it helps to be certain that there's something in the vehicle that has some significant value. This could be a video game console, jewelry, or a wallet. Not being certain what return on investment they'll get for the trouble of breaking into a car will make them less likely to do so.


In the warmer months, tinted windows can help provide a level of shade for your car that can keep it cooler inside. This can reduce light burns that come from exposed skin touching sun-baked leather or the need to blast the air conditioning when first entering a vehicle because it has become so hot and humid inside. You and your family and friends can ride in a higher degree of comfort in a vehicle that has tinted windows. 

Other Things to Consider

As wonderful as tinted windows can be, there are some things you may want to consider as you're determining how dark of a tint to get, which windows, and on which vehicles. 

How Dark

Certain areas have different regulations regarding exactly how dark your tint is allowed to be. Before getting your windows tinted, be sure that you know what the rules are for wherever you do most of your driving, not necessarily just the area where you received the tinting services. 

Which Windows

Some areas may have little regulations regarding how dark the tint is, but have policies in place related to which windows can be tinted. Some places may accept side windows being tinted, but not the rear one. Be sure to check this out for the area where you drive the most before you order your tinting service. 

Which Vehicles

You may want to think twice about tinting the windows on certain vehicles, depending upon what you use the vehicle for. For instance, if you have multiple small children, it may be a nuisance for you to have to open doors to be certain which children are in the car and which aren't. When you're in a rush to get someone, such as school or daycare, this can be a big time-waster. Children forgetting things in the back seats of cars is also going to be made harder with tint because they can't just look through the window to make sure they have everything. 

Keeping all these things in mind, talk with a window tint glass company, such as Supertint Ltd, to see if it's right for you. Getting your windows tinted has great benefits, beyond revamping the look and feel of your car.
