If you love spending your summers off-road, tinting the windows of your custom built 4×4 Land Rover is the perfect modification. Even though it adds an undeniable ‘cool’ factor, this feature also offers multiple safety and convenience benefits. And there’s nothing cooler than safe driving.
The intense heat of America’s summer days can have adverse effects on your vehicle, especially while off-roading. Whether you want to add a modern twist to your custom built Land Rover or protect your windshield, here are a few benefits of tinting your car windows:
1. More Privacy and Security
You don’t have to be a celebrity to want to keep a low profile. When stuck in traffic, people tend to stare into each other’s vehicles. Tinting your windows will help you avoid locking eyes with a bored and rather nosey stranger.
More importantly, you’ll feel more secure having valuable items in your car. Now we don’t suggest hiding your life savings in there, but you’ll feel safer leaving things behind (like your phone) to make a quick run to the store.
In our opinion, your car should be a private space. Although standard glass windows often deter this option. Window tinting makes sure what happens in your Land Rover, stays in your Land Rover.
2. Reduces the Glare
There’s nothing worse than catching a bright glare of the sun while driving or off-roading. It’s also quite dangerous to have no sight of the road ahead for even just a split-second.
Tinted windows reduce the glare of the sun against your windshield because the window film acts as a ‘sun-block’. Think of it as applying sunscreen on your windows to protect your eyes from the sun.
It will ultimately protect you and your passengers from the harmful rays of the sun as well. Off-roading can often have you driving on roads where there is no shade for miles. Window tinting can save you from developing skin damage due to prolonged exposure to the sun.
3. Less Sun Absorption
Do you ever wonder why some parts of your interior are faded, and others aren’t? Well, it’s because of the exposure they get to the sun. Regular glass windows allow for absorption of excess summer heat which ultimately discolors your seats.
A faded interior can give your vehicle an old and unappealing look. For a diligent car owner like yourself, this just won’t do. Having a great car means taking care of both the exterior and interior.
Window tinting protects your upholstery from being damaged from the harmful rays of the sun. You’ll have the seats of your classic custom Land Rover looking brand new for years to come.
4. Cooler Car Temperature
There’s another benefit to reduced heat absorption, and that is having an overall cool car temperature. Tinted windows prevent sun rays from penetrating your car.
In life, you won’t always have the option to park in a nice shady spot, which could mean leaving your car exposed to the sun for a while. When you’re ready to get going again, your vehicle greets you with a wave of heat that has accumulated due to heat absorption.
Tinted windows are the best way to keep your car cool even on the hottest summer days. It’s also quite beneficial when off-roading because you will be less affected by the heat conditions of your off-road location.
5. No Shattered Glass
As we mentioned before, there’s nothing cooler than safe driving, and tinted windows offer you just that. Even the safest of drivers are vulnerable to being in an accident.
Shattered glass often happens when a vehicle experiences a collision. It can cause serious cuts or injuries to you or your passengers. Tinted windows prevent broken glass from flying out of the frame after an intense impact.
The window fill allows the glass to stay in place and shatter inwards, instead of falling out of the window frame. This feature also protects you and your vehicle from possible smash and grab incidents.
6. An Overall Cool-Factor
We don’t want to be presumptuous, but we can guess this is the real reason you’re here. If you’re looking for a simple way to modernize your classic custom Land Rover, tinted windows are the way to go.
You don’t have to get a brand new paint job to transform the look of your vehicle. Tinted windows are stylish and quite fashionable in the car world. They provide elegance with a clean and polished look that most car enthusiasts will tell you is a necessary accessory for any modern car.
Window tinting is one of the easiest and affordable ways to improve your vehicle’s aesthetic. If you’re a first-timer when it comes to adding features or accessories, tinting your windows is a great way to break into the car modification world.
Having a car modification that not only looks good but is beneficial to the overall well-being of your car is one of the best investments you can make. Tinted windows are useful for any driver and protect your vehicle from harmful conditions of which you may not even be aware.
Putting practical benefits aside, tinted windows simply just look great on a Land Rover. If you were to get this feature simply for this reason, we’re not judging. In fact, we encourage it.
