What happens if you buy a car with factory tint but want it darker? There are many benefits to darker window tint on cars, in addition to the look and the appearance. It’s relatively easy to tint over factory tint, as long as you’re working with a professional. To understand how tinting over factory tint works, you need to understand the differences between factory tint and aftermarket tint.
Factory tint and aftermarket tint are both so different that they shouldn’t both be called “tint.” Factory tint is a tint within the glass; the glass itself is a different color. Aftermarket tint is a film that is placed over glass; it can be removed and reapplied. If you’re purchasing a car secondhand, it may not be obvious whether or not your vehicle has factory tint or aftermarket tint. To determine the difference, you have to look at the window and see whether the tint goes all the way through the glass or whether it appears to be on the surface of the glass.
But because factory tint is inside the window and aftermarket tint is on top of the window, it’s more than possible to place aftermarket tint on top of factory tint. You just need to be careful.
