Default Window Tint

This black bad-a$$ Panamera is my first P-car that *begs* for tinting. My guy that has done my tinting in the past for other cars s(not Porsche but M-B and others) says that he has had bad luck with the Panamera because of the tight window channel. He says that he has had issues with scratches on the tint.

Weigh in, people!

Thanks

You should find about it if you do a search in this forum, maybe for tint scratch. I believe you need to install felt-type pads in the channels to prevent scratching.

yes my GTS was tinted by the dealer. it had fine lines from scratches that drove me crazy. no one sees it on the outside.

I am waiting for my new panamera . i will have them tint, i just have to slowly forget about little things that drive me crazy :banged:

good luck with your tinting , hope you have better luck

Mine is also tinted and the bothfront windows are with scraches. The guy that tint it and that tints all of my cars since 1998 told me that that's normal for Panamera and the new Audi A8.

So.... yeah you have to live with it.
