I would love to hear how this went. Where did you go? What did you pay? How does it look? Better than my "five minutes with some tape" effort? What material was used? How much of the trim piece was covered?I'm going to have a guy who wraps cars put some matte wrap on it. It sucks...
Ceramic film is CLEAR and is a heat repellant and is legal in all States I believe. The ceramic film was placed over all windows even those factory tinted and over the front side windows tinted tinted by Tint King.My '21 Niro has the ceramic tinting on the rear and side windows. Nothing on the front window (as that is not permitted in most states). I'd imagine front tinting will reduce the problem (as the light causing this issue comes in the front window) but, if (in your case) it eliminates it, I'd be worrying that the front window's tinting renders you car dangerous to drive at night.
Pamsboy,So I guess my ceramic film on the wind shield along with the tinting on the side windows does it.
I pointed this out to the salesman when I test drove the car. Shiney **** on the dashboard is a problem manufacturers need to get away from.
When I drive around and it's about 1 in the afternoon the sun is absolutely brutal as it reflects off this at the perfect angle into all front passenger faces. Has anyone experienced a similar problem? What can I do about it? Is there like a film or something I could apply to it or do I need to remove/paint?
What my wife didn't notice was the black tape. As that resolved the glare issue for me, I'm not surprised she hasn't seen it (the glare).I did not have a major issue with the front shiny dash and it is not strange that your wife has not noticed it yet . The issue was severe while I was driving and wanted to use the left mirror in a highway (I could see three extremely bright lines, reflected from shiny vent, in the left mirror). After returning home, I immediately purchased black tapes from Amazon to fix this issue.
