    This is what used to be 5% (aka "limo") tint after about 5 years (I don't know what brand it was)...and no those aren't defroster lines stuck to the tint film--those lines are where the tint film did not fade due to sunlight/UV not getting past the defroster lines. Something to think about...

    My 2015 Optima EX only has 11k miles and I've noticed this issue for a long time now, maybe since new. I'll windex the inside of the windshield and within days or a week, it'll develop a thin film of something on the inside of the windshield again. Almost like what you see from heavy smokers who...

    I have a 1/2 inch film around the edges of my outside driver side mirror. It won't come off with any kind of cleaner. What is this, and how do I get rid of it? Does it need to be replaced? Can they replace just the glass part? The car os only 1 year old. Thanks.

It seemed strange it wasn't done so I asked the installer about it today and he said this piece was not...
