I have an all original 1996 DCM with only 9,000 original miles. Zero mods other than the Dub Infared nano ceramic tint. Still has the original factory discontinued tires!

Love it!

What do you think of the tint as far as heat reduction? I've been reading/YouTubing up on "nano carbon ceramic" tint and it seems to allow much less through when the installers blast the tinted glass with a heat gun.

Nice car, but is it really "all original" if it has had dark window tint installed?

I appreciate the compliment!

I live in Houston, Texas. Our summers hit 105 degrees with car interiors reaching +120 degrees. I tinted the whole front window 20% and all others 5%. I was driving it when I first bought it and was afraid the dashboard would crack. However, I did love the fishbowl look. I just felt my dash was worth the sacrifice. As for the reduction!? The difference is night and day. With the a/c on full blast it’s so cold you’ll get a headache. Even on the hottest day, you won’t even break a sweat upon entering. I highly recommend it’s with the $300 price tag.
