Auto Effects' in-house tinter expertly adorns cars with sun-truncating films to ward off UV rays and high temperatures. Though regular window-tinting film is applied without heat, leading to imperfections and tiny bubbles, premium window-tinting film is applied with a high-heat process that results in a factory finish. Tinted windows protect interior upholstery from sun damage, keep glares from distracting the driver, and reduce heat, all while enhancing the car's style and improving its ability to sleep through drivers’ ed class. During the service, technicians shroud the front two windows of any car, keeping the cockpit cool and shaded. Groupon holders can also apply the value of today's deal toward upgrades such as two-car full-window films ($240 for premium) or full-tint jobs for four-door cars ($280+ for premium), blocking the sun’s overheated advances and the moon’s day-glo American flags.
