Anyone have recommendations for car window tinting near Highlands Ranch/Tech Center? I have an appointment a few weeks out with Intrigue Detail – Automobile Detailing Services – Exotic Sports Car Detailing – Luxury Car Care Services but was hoping to find something a little closer to me.

My searches pull up many that "service" Highlands Ranch but their locations are all over the map ie. Broomfield, Golden etc. You know, I can have a business in NY and advertise that I service Highlands Ranch providing you drive it in. Have to love advertising. I can't bring myself to dust off the yellow pages.

Thanks!

Ok, a bit out of your way, but I would highly recommend Maddox in Aurora off Parker Rd/Quincy. My family and I have taken all our cars there to get tinted for the last 20 years, they have always done a really professional job, and the film they use is top quality that lasts a long time.

I have a follow-up tinting question.

Back in NJ, tinting the front windows of your car (I believe) is illegal, or at least rarely done so it was surprising to see how many cars are nearly blacked out around here.

Is tinting done for the purposes of keeping the sun/heat out? Or privacy? Or a bit of both?
If it's mainly a heat issue, does it truly make a big difference and what degree of tinting is necessary to make a difference?

I've always had my cars tinted. My last car 35% all around, my current car 30% all around. 30% is the lowest you can go legally in CO and it's what most shops use. It makes a HUGE difference in how hot it gets. Believe it or not it also helps visibility at night by filtering out glaring headlights.

Thanks for the info. I looked it up and front window tinting isn't allowed NJ, so I had that right. I'd love the car to stay cooler and reducing glare is a nice bonus too. Hmm...I may have to test drive a tinted car. I wonder if it will be one of those "how did I ever live without this" sort of things...

sorry don't have a link but I'm on my phone. If you google "ceramic window tinting" they make film now that is essentially clear (people actually put the film on their windshield) but it blocks out a huge percentage of the UV / heat.

Ahhhh ... Found a link for 3M ... I think there are some competitive films also. The stuff is not cheap.
