I am getting reflections off my front widows.
The driver's window is reflecting thru the windshield of what is on the right side of the car.
My peripheral vision is seeing these reflections while driving. Very disturbing.
Will tinting the front widows stop or reduce these reflections?
The tinting people say that they do not know, but suggest that I try it.
Of course they would say that. It's good for business.
Please advise.

I noticed the same problem with the reflections coming off the front driver and passenger windows. I did tint them and it decreased, but it depends on how the light is shinning. Overall, I've gotten use to the reflections, but yes... I think tinting helps decrease it.

Boca Cuber:
Thanks for the reply. Besides me, you seem to be the only person who has experienced this problem of the reflections off the 2 front windows. None of the tinting dealers around here have any idea if tinting would remove/decrease the reflections.
I am going to try tinting. Like you, I am getting used to the reflections. But there may come a time when I will be trying to change lanes and the car on my right looks like it is on my left. And vice versa.
Because of this I am most cautious about changing lanes.

I have had no reflection issue with mine. On another note I read people talking about the visors. With this vehicle design you barely need sun glasses or the visors for more than the glance in that tiny mirror in the huge elephant ear of a visor.

I plan on tinting my front windows to match the rears, picture framed theme and all aside.

I see this reflection in the windows also. I drive to work at O' dark30 and as I pass cars that are on the right, I will see their lights reflecting off my driver side window. Same goes with folks passing me on the left where I'll see their 'lights' on the passenger side window. Tinting 'may' reduce this but I'm not so sure it will get rid of it completely.

I'm thinking the only way to eliminate this would be to get a tint that would be slightly frosted so that it would diffuse the reflection rather than act like a mirror. Now before I get 'flamed' with comments about 'reduced visisbility' and such... I am NOT a designer or engineer... it's just an idea because it is very bothersome to see these weird reflections in the cabin while driving and can be very distracting.

Frosted window is a nice idea, but you are absolutely right that you couldn't do it. I'm more concerned about all the tickets you would get. Tinted windows should help the problem more than you thk, BUT make sure to check your local laws before applying any window tinting.

I guess I'm the only one seeing the advantage here. While looking in one side mirror you can see the relection of the other side at the same time and you don't have to look the other way. Right??? ;)
