Wow, today was horrible for me, I had full AC on and I even parked in the shade and the interior of my car was absolutely boiling. MY OBC read 38 degrees so I can only imagine what it was inside. Do you think tint actually helps cut down on that? I was tempted to get one of those windshield shades but they look so uncool.

Tints help a lot. I had 3 black cars (black in & out) and there was a big difference when it comes to heat/sun before & after tints.

PS. My OBC went up to 42C today, but having light interior + tints helps a lot :)

black on black = sauna, I had to drive with the windows down & A/C on max to cool the car down so I can put my arm on the window ledge

Today temp (with humidex) hit 42C, I felt really sorry for people who had to drive and had no AC. For a minute I rolled down my window, but there was only hot air blowing..

I was out and about in my car, no A/C, no tint. Anyone know of a good shop that can tint for cheap? I'm not looking for limo tints, just something reasonable (25% on rears, 40% on front), or something like that. I have a light blue car with tan leather, so it's not thaaat bad, but still hotter than hell.

yeah, no A/C and black leather interior and no tint. it did feel like a sauna. Man threw the air on and nothing but hot air. Was scorching. I wish there was a shaded area to park my car atleast.

Don't put all 4 windows down, just the 2 fronts. Then drive as fast as you can and you'll get the huge breeze!
All 4 down just sucks the air from the fronts out the rears, essentially doing almost nothing for you.

I don't know what kinda car you drive, but mine works very well, and I drive pretty much topless, sometime truckers honk at me and shit, probally cause they thought I was a man-bitch with my man-boobs.

That's what I used to do... recently I started rolling down all 4 windows and I've found it to be more effective. Possibly because it's sucking the hot interior air out the rear windows. Cooled my black on black leather car mighty quick with those rears down.

well when you open all 4 windows the fresh air comes in the front windows & pushes the hot air out the back ones, so it definitely does something
