The benefits of сoupe window tinting

The rays of the sun will not only drastically raise the temperature inside the coupe, making it unsafe to drive, but will also cause damage to the upholstery. But Tinting films are there to help! Their main properties include:

  • Reducing the heat inside the vehicle
  • Reducing UV rays
  • Reducing glare
  • Offering extra privacy
  • Improving the appearance of the car

However, keep in mind that you may risk getting a ticket if the tint is too dark, and this can also reduce visibility when the weather conditions are bad.

Coupe window tinting laws

The darkness of tinting films is measured in VLT (visible light transmission). So the percentage actually shows the amount of light that passes through the window, and not the darkness. A film with a VLT of 80% will let 80% of the light to pass through, which makes it a very light one. On the other hand, the darkest film is that with a VLT of 5%.

When it comes to coupes, the same laws apply as with any other vehicles. There is no one single federal law that regulates car window tinting, but each state has its own. Keep in mind that even if you respect the regulations in your state but are then travelling to another, you may risk getting pulled over as the laws may be different there.

In the state of Illinois, the front 2 windows can be tinted up to 35% VLT, while the windshield is only allowed to be tinted with a 6 inch 5% stripe. Rear window can have any darkness of tint.
