    I took the cruze to work for the first time in a while, thus an hour and a half drive at night on the way home. I forgot how irritating the home screen for the Mylink display is. I assume there is no way to load a new wallpaper, so I started looking around for a tinted screen protector. I had no...

    Hey guys, I bought a 2015 cruze last week and I'm looking at getting it tinted. I live in Winnipeg, and I've been calling around getting some quotes. The lowest I found was $200 cash and they'd finish in 45min-1hr. Mid was from $249-starting $300. the most I found was $360. I am on a budget, but...

    So I have been doing a TON of research and I'm pretty set on the VHT Nightshade finish with clear coating. I've found a tutorial on how to take the outer tail lamps out, but was wondering on the inner (on the trunk). Or do I have to even take the lamps out? Am I able to just tape it off and...

    I really want to tint/smoke my tail lights, and I've read through a few posts here and done some research online and I'm still not sure which method would be best for what I want, so hopefully some of you can help me out. Basically, what I don't want is for them to be completely blacked out...

    Hey guys I need your input on tailight tinting. I will attach pics, but I would like a 2-tone effect (red on the top and smoked on the bottom). What is the best method: 1) Lamin-X style film tint or 2) Vans spray tint for the red and nightshade for the smoke. I would a stock look

    Hey guys, new to the forums. Tomorrow I will be tinting my 2011 Cruze(Black) windows the fronts will be 35% and the rear windows 20%. I just wanted to get some feedback whether or not it would look decent or, be good shades of black on a black car. Thought about Limo tint, but rather not...

    First, let me say I'm not a fan of tinting my car windows, but I am considering a small amount of tint to help the A/C. I'm looking at 5-10% max tint. Will 5% reduce the solar radiation enough to help the A/C?

    I am considering buying the film and doing it myself. Who's done it and how difficult is it to have it come out good. Also, I have seen a big price range on kits, what brand do you recommend? Should I stay away from inexpensive kits on ebay or are they okay? This will be my first car with...

    Has anyone gotten their windows tinted or know of a GOOD tint shop in or near Chicago? I have gone to a couple in the city, but they don't seem very trustworthy.

    I plan to have my windows tinted in the next week or two. I have a black LTZ. I never realized that tinting can in different light factors, (20%, 30%, etc.). My previous cars came with the windows tinted. For those who have had the window tinting done, "What did you get for each of the Front...

    To any Cruze owner that has had their windows tinted. Did you have the strip on the windshield installed? I've looked at some pics on Cruzetalk and (to me) it's kinda hard to tell. It seems that the tint would have to come down the windshield pretty far in order to clear the plastic piece behind...
