Yep, well known problem, you cant tint is as its plastic. the tint shrinks and cracks if you do.

You can use spi-vision or solarplexus film to "tint" that section.

There is also a solution called, I think, solarplexius, flexible plastic that can be removed, recent thread on here I seem to remember

Hey mate, just thought £160 for tinting a civic is slightly steep its about £120 in birmingham.

I have been quoted £100 for my type r to be tinted. Back 3 windows, however again they won't touch the lower part. Wax dee had done something on his cant remember what so will ask but that turned out good.

Anyone got suggestions re whether the bottom rear plastic window is the same on a "type s" as it is on a "type r"??? Want to order solar plexius but only given option between "type r" and "civic", I own a "type s" so a little confused.....
