Ayo, my Rtint blackout tint came today so I decided I might as well post a small review as I already took pictures.

First impressions: Its a tint, what else is there to say? Rtint will refund a rebate of the purchase price if you include 4 high res pics of the product installed. So what the hey, installed it and took some pics and hopefully Ill get the rebate, so this is free! Shipping was fine, nothing absurdly fast, nor slow.

Upon installation, everything seemed to go smoothly until I remembered the cruze has that awkward bump on its headlights. But, after all I own a graphics shop I knew I could make it happen. Got out the blow drier, and sure enough installation was a breeze. The tint wrapped around the awkward bump and just had a few air bubbles to squeegee out.

How does it look?
Pretty baller if I do say myself



Now the best part of the headlight blackout tint has to be, that its static and can be removed at any time. That was a huge selling point for me

...some states have "light output" statutes which require a minimum light intensity at a specified distance.

...I'm guessing the stock OEM lamps would now be below those minimums.

...of course, switching to higher output HID lamps obviously offsets that problem.

Well I love the look, however how will this effect light output?
I turned on the lights and they seem fine, albeit a little bit dimmer and an odd shade of purple. Like 70AAR said, a higher intensity bulb would help.

But, I hardly drive at night, and like I said, these are removable/re apply able with a install time of like 20 minutes; so if worse comes to worst I can just peel em off

this is my bike with the high beam hids and the halogen low beam for a rough comparison. just to give you an idea. there alot brighter in person sorry for the bad pic i couldn't get straight on with the camera due to them being way to bright for the camera to focus

I figured it out and are assuming you got it from Rvynils. Did you get the static black or the dark smoke?

... because I have the gray cruze and am considering trying the dark smoke because it will hopefully look better and not affect my lights too much

Looks good. If only you had fog lights I wouldn't think it would be as much of a problem. ;)

Im on the fence with this one.
I think the install looks very clean and matches the car well, but I am concerned with all the rock chips and scratches that might occur from the road. After a while the light would shine through and make it look strange at night.
