Car window tinting has several benefits no matter where you live in the country, but if there were ever a list of cities where vehicles could most benefit from professional window film installation. Not only does window tint keep cars cooler in the sweltering summers, but it also lowers energy costs and increases privacy and security.
How durable is window tint?
Window film is installed on the inside of the glass for maximum durability—there’s no risk of damage from road debris, scratching branches, or extreme weather. Additionally, quality window film comes with a hard scratch-resistant coating to protect from kids, pets, and other everyday use. However, that doesn’t mean window film is indestructible. You’ll still need to take care when loading and unloading objects with hard edges like boxes or sporting equipment. Fortunately, replacing window tint on a single window is generally inexpensive.
Reduce UV radiation
While the standard glass used in car windows can block some UV radiation, a car window tinting of good quality from a reputable manufacturer —if applied correctly—can help increase protection from ultraviolet radiation. It can also help preserve the interior of your car, including the upholstery, carpeting, and dashboard, which can fade over time by exposure to sunlight.
The amount of light that a window tint allows into the interior varies greatly, and affects how well you can see out. Every state has its own regulations and laws pertaining to the level of darkness it allows for automotive window tints. The volume of light that can pass through your window is referred to as variable light transmission, or VLT. Each state has different regulations concerning VLT percentage, so it’s a good idea to check local laws concerning what you’re allowed to do.
In addition to blocking UVA radiation, a window tint can provide a couple of safety and security benefits. In an accident, automotive window tint film can actually help hold shattered glass in place or reduce the amount of shattered glass. Darkened windows may also hide or obscure articles left in your car, which may deter a thief.
2019 Subaru STI:
2019 Subaru STI Window Tint at Tint Magic Window Tinting Coral Springs. We are located at 11344 Wiles Road Coral Springs FL 33076. Call us for the best quality service! (954) 840-7883. We have installed Suntek Nano Carbon CXP 25% all over around the windows for the best heat protection and visibility.
The 2019 Subaru STI gets slightly more powerful for 2019 thanks in part to a new air intake and performance exhaust system, which bumps engine output from 305 horsepower to 310. Likewise, the four-cylinder mill receives a retuned engine control unit (ECU) and stronger pistons. The manual transmission also has a shorter third gear that Subaru says improves acceleration. A new Series.Gray model joins the lineup, too, but only 250 will be produced. These limited editions sport a unique Cool Gray Khaki paint color as well as exclusive badging, folding exterior mirrors, black 19-inch wheels, and sliver brake calipers. Inside, the Series.Gray mixes black faux-suede and leather with red stitching. Its standard equipment includes an upgraded suspension, Recaro front seats, and keyless entry with push-button start. For those seeking the ultimate STI, there is the S209; we estimate it will go from zero to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds.
Any WRX STI purchase is sizable. We would probably curtail our spending given the Subaru’s plebeian trappings. If you desire additional niceties, the pricier Limited model adds the Recaro bundle plus a power sunroof, navigation, a Harman/Kardon premium audio system, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. The Limited also gains the option to replace the STI’s giant rear wing with a less outrageous one. Stick with the base WRX and you still get front and rear limited-slip differentials, a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, dual-zone automatic climate control, and red seatbelts.

Mercedes Benz GLA:
Essentially a raised hatchback version of the CLA sedan, the GLA performed better in our tests than its sibling. It got 26 mpg overall from the 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder. But the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic is unrefined, and power delivery is uneven. This makes the GLA feel lethargic at first, then power comes on abruptly. Handling is nimble, but the ride is stiff and the cabin is loud. Visibility, particularly to the rear, is poor, and headroom is snug. Available safety features include forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and blind spot warning. A front-wheel-drive version and a high-performance 375-hp GLA45 are available. The infotainment system is complicated and takes time to master but now features compatibility with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
The Mercedes GLA is an OK luxury subcompact SUV. It’s one of the most fun to drive crossovers in the class, with eager corner-carving abilities and carlike maneuverability. However, the GLA has an unrefined transmission and hesitant throttle response.
The standard infotainment system works well and is easy to use, but that’s one of the few highlights of the interior. The back seat offers little space, and most rivals have a larger cargo hold. While many other Mercedes vehicles set the standard for elegance in their class, the GLA’s cabin quality is mediocre.
You should buy the GLA if you want a small crossover with engaging driving dynamics, and if you don’t often ferry around rear-seat passengers. A few better choices in the class take the GLA’s strengths and add in lots of other positives
2019 Mercedes Benz AMG GLE43 at Tint Magic Window Tinting Coral Springs.
The new 2019 Mercedes Benz AMG GLE Coupe is now available with the AMG Performance Studio package, which includes orange exterior accents, 21-inch alloy wheels with orange accents, and black side mirrors. Wood trim is now offered on the GLE 63 S.
Standard features on the base model include a Drive mode selector with five options, a sport-tuned electronically controlled suspension, adaptive dampers, an AMG sport exhaust system, 21-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, a panoramic sunroof, heated front seats, keyless entry and start, MB-Tex leatherette upholstery, a power liftgate, Mercedes’ COMAND interface with an 8.0-inch screen, navigation, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a Harman Kardon audio system, and two USB ports.
The base 2019 AMG GLE 43 comes with a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 with 385 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission. Moving up to the AMG GLE 63 S gets you a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V-8 with a pavement-destroying 577 hp and 561 lb-ft. A seven-speed automatic is the only gearbox available on the AMG GLE 63 S.
EPA fuel economy ratings are 17/22 mpg city/highway for the AMG GLE 43 and 14/18 mpg for the AMG GLE 63 S.
The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe has not been crash tested by the NHTSA and IIHS. However, the standard GLE-Class received a four-star rollover rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars). In IIHS testing, the conventional GLE-Class was awarded a 2019 Top Safety Pick+ rating after it received a Good score across all categories (Good is the highest score) and a Superior score on the front crash prevention test after it avoided a 12-mph collision and reduced the speed of a 25-mph impact by 24 mph (Superior is the highest score on the front crash prevention test).
Standard active driver assistance features include attention assist, blind-spot monitoring, lane keeping assist, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and crosswind assist. Adaptive cruise control, active steering assist, rear cross-traffic alert, and pedestrian detection are optional.
BMW 530 Window Tinting at Tint Magic Window Tinting Coral Springs. Call us for a free estimate! (954) 840-7883.
The BMW 530 exhibits almost zero turbo lag, and throttle response is natural and immediate both off the line and in higher-speed passing maneuvers. The B46 produces just a smidge more power and less torque than the previous N20 turbo four (248 horsepower at 6500 rpm and 258 lb-ft of torque from 1450 rpm, an increase of 8 ponies and a drop of 2 lb-ft). Still, the new 5-series feels notably quicker, thanks to extensive use of aluminum—including in the trunklid, doors, and suspension parts—combined with other mass-reduction efforts that have yielded a claimed weight loss of 123 pounds for the 530i xDrive version that we drove. Given all that, we have no reason to doubt BMW’s claim that the 530i xDrive can accelerate to 60 mph in 5.8 seconds, if not more quickly.
More important is that the new 5 feels more predictable and easier to maneuver, thanks in part to the redesigned suspension largely made from aluminum, which helps reduce unsprung mass. Also helping matters was our example’s optional $2600 M Sport package with its upsized 19-inch wheels and tires and lowered ride height (along with blackout exterior trim, a sport steering wheel, an aero body kit, and aluminum interior trim). Our car also was equipped with BMW’s latest Integral Active Steering system ($1150), which combines a variable-ratio steering rack with speed-dependent electric assistance and rear-wheel steering. As we noted in our 540i first drive, IAS now has a more linear and natural feeling, a boon to handling predictability.
As the roads dried out, we became less shy with our corner-entry speeds and found lateral-grip levels to be tremendous. When the time came to slow, the strength and pedal feel of the optional M Sport brakes stood out as excellent. Meanwhile, the dynamic dampers provided a supple cushioning of harsh impacts.
