Some good shops will tint right to the edge of the windows but risks the tint edge getting caught by the gasket and then lift/peel over time.

Then the dealer took it to a shop and had it tinted before they had the car for sale. It does have that untinted area on the upper edge of the windows.

Nice looking deck spoiler, I wish I could have that if it hadn't been the original owner of my car put a wing spoiler on it......

Althought if would be even better if the decklid spoiler also had the high brightness LED brake lights too!

How is the dot-matrix protion on the top of the rear windshield? Can you take a close-up pics of that?

Aviography- The dot matrix turned out ok, but not flawless. I was cleaning the windows for the first time the other day and rubbed up against it a few times when cleaning, and you can see where I pushed the tint closer to the dots, so I'm pretty sure that was something I shouldn't have done!!

However, I will try to take a picture sometime soon and post it, since it is dark now here.

And- I noticed a actual air bubble in the bottom left area of the rear window, and the shop I had do it said they would warranty it for 3 years, no bubbles or cracking, etc. The front window on the driver's side also has some issue at the top of the window where it seals, so I will be taking it in sometime soon-ish.

I like the lip spoiler a lot, it would be cool having a better 3rd brake light though. Most Accord's I see are sedans, but if I see a coupe they either don't have a spoiler or have a wing. I am a fan of spoiler's either way though!
