louvers and tint suggestions/help for my 2000 Mustang

Hey, I was interested in getting a rear louver installed on my '00, and was wondering (this may sound dumb) if i should get the rear window tinted as well, or does that ruin the whole point of having louvers? I was thinking this because what happens to the side windows (door and quarter) after that, if i want them tinted? Basically will it look funny having sides tinted and back not tinted, but with louvers?

Also, same dilemma, but on the quarter windows i want to get the scoop/louvers. Do i tint as well, or just leave them?

Thanks for input

I more than likely would not tint the rear. Would not do much.

I am planning on doing the same thing. I did have the dealer tint all my windows but instead of doing the normal limo black in the rear I told them to tint the front as dark as legally possible then use the same color on the side and rear. I figure with the lighter tint and the louvers I will get the same effect as if I had limo black.

tint for you back window is gonna be pretty expensive ($75-$100) and if you think you can do it yourself let me just remind you of how large the window is and how awkward it is to get to it. I tinted my own windows and didnt have problems untill the back one. I got it up there and could not get the thing n e where near where it needed to be and ended up just tearing the whole thing off. i dont think you need tint but the same tint as ur front windows wouldnt be a bad idea.

When I had the Dealer do mine it was after I had already had the car for a couple of weeks. I took it back for some touch ups and asked them if they would have the people who tint their cars do it while it was there. It cost me $150 but I got it done right and they installed the proper moleskin wipes and its covered under my warranty now.

Hey I have a 1991 LX and what I did was add the rear window louvers and then added 5% Charcoal gray tint to the rear window. Also I tinted the quarter window windows and will be getting the quarter window louvers soon. To me it looks great both inside and out.

wow tint jobs in different area's are pricey.... i paid $75 to tint my doors 1/4s and rear had 20% on front and 5% on the rest...

also paid $75 total for my wifes 2008 mazda 3 5 door.... which was 4 doors 2 1/4s and the rear.. 20% all around..

75 to 100 just for the back your tint place is ripping you off.
