Cars, like teenagers, need to feel cool, frequently giving in to trends such as vacuum-sealed jeans and completely opaque sunglasses. Safely up your car’s cool factor with today's Groupon: for $150, you get 3M premium-grade tinting for five windows at Startronics in Santa Monica (a $350 value). Extra windows for most vehicles can be tinted for $20 each, RV and bus windows for an extra $25 each.
Startronics' vehicular virtuosos have refined and improved automobiles both inside and out for 25 years. Submit steeds to a premium window tinting to stymie sunlight, preserve fabrics, and keep interiors blemish-free. Choose from a variety of light-shunning shades that complement the introverted nature of your ride with customized protection. Fade-fighting films are selectively cut to ensure a seamless fit with window frames, provide parked privacy from passersby, and potentially reduce injuries caused by shattered glass in accidents. Application and dry time total about three and a half hours, or the same amount spent sitting in daily gridlock on the 401.
Additionally, all services are backed with a lifetime warranty on parts and labor should the tinting film ever peel, bubble, or become discolored. All 3M glass-tint applications protect automotive upholstery that is sensitive to the sun's savage rays, causing fading and cracking of its tender underbelly, along with depreciation, discomfort, and mockery from more sprightly sedans.
For more than 30 years, the Startronics team of technicians has tinted glass, integrated audio systems, and customized rides for drivers in the greater Los Angeles area. Nowadays, it continually updates its technological prowess, offering everything from a full stereo overhaul to the installation of iPod-integration devices. Its services use brand-name products such as 3M window films, Hertz Audio's Italian-made speakers, and Samsung GPS devices, which can help vehicles find their way to the out-of-the-way service station hosting that week's car-motorcycle mixer.
