    Default Window Tints

    I've had mine tinted on saturday and i've been told not to roll down the windows for 5 days FFS! I'm being cooked alive. Has anyone else been told this or is some having a laugh on my behalf? 48 hours i can understand but 5 days!!!

    What they said! Never heard of that with modern tints. When I had mine done nothing was mentioned about not winding down the windows - can't think why you couldn't.

    Anyone know for what possible reason the 'advice' is given? I can only think it's in case they think the film will move when it rubs on the window frame if it hasn't dried fully?

    Something to do with that. Wasn't a problem as i don't often open the rear windows.
