    dont quote me on this, but i dont think you can because of the type of the glass (tempered). I was told that if you do, you can crack the t-top glass.

    I thought about getting a limo tint on mine once - but think the covers insulate the heat better.

    mine are tinted stock and it keeps a good amount of heat out. I've also heard that you can't tint t-tops and sunroofs because it will shatter.

    I am pretty sure the saying is : "Old Wives Tale"---

    I've had my t-tops tinted with the tint that blocks out UV and heat. There wasn't much tint in the film (stock tint is pretty good). No problems.

    it will not cause the glass to shatter it will cause it to get hotter on the outside and that would really suck to lay your arm on it I just try to park in the shade then again I hardly ever get to drive mine

    hey mine were tinted when i bought the car, but i think u might be better using the covers. i know they keep heat out really well, im thinking it would keep the car cooler then tint.

    Just use the shades, I remove mine in winter. Should be velcro'ed on and come off with the tops without having to remove them.

    Believe what you want man but I honestly don't think 6 shops in my area would lie to me when I wanted my car limo'd out with the T-Tops too. I ended up just letting a friend do it at his shop but he wouldn't even tint the tops.
