        yeah thats what im worried about. i don't want to drop $160 for tint and then 2 years later (Even though i won't have a/this saturn in 2 years. who knows, i might get another! anyway>) the back window is looking all nasty and shit.. i see alot of saturns with ugly looking tint and i've seen some other cars with rough back windows, bubbles, peeling, etc.

          since you're *getting* your windows tinted (a wise move, BTW), make sure you get a warranty. Then you don't have to worry about it. [img]{SMILIES_PATH}/wink.gif[/img]

            I've had my windows tinted ever since I got the car (3 years ago) and I'm just noticing they need redone. I can hardly see well out of my back window. I'm not sure if it's from the back defroster or what. I agree with my man PurdueGuy and see if they have any kind of warranty.

              the little bubbles around the edge of the rear window is known as the matrix effect. its suppose to happen around the edge but everything else should be smooth

                  go for it...interesting idea. maybe i'll find some cheap glass and try it.

                  you would actually have to remove the windows to do a decent job.. unless its not very runny stuff. it'd probably be harder to remove too.

                  edit: i could just not use it and steal some defroster spray from work. im sure it works on windows... or i could probably find something that would work.

                      I had an old SL tinted up in Maryland when I lived there and the guy did an amazing job on the install. He told me to wait a week before using the defroster so I did, just to make sure. I had that tint in the car for 6+ years and used the defroster all the time in the winter with no trouble at all.

                      I think it might come down to quality of the film used and the quality of the work/install.

                        niteshades makes spray on window tint btw, looks awesome till you roll down the windows and the weather stripping peels it off. some guy at a local speed shop told me about the few people that had come in and had tried it

                          they said it couldn&#39;t be done, i said watch and learn

                              Yup, if they did a good job, you should be able to use the defroster with no problem. Had mine done for about a year and still looks good.
