    Window tinting on a lease

    I just leased a base model A4 which I absolutely love. It'll be the first of many.

    Anyway, on a lease, if I pay to have the windows tinted, will I have to tear the tint off when turning it in at the end of the lease? Will I be penalized? My GF and I plan on leasing another Audi, an upgraded model, when this lease is up.

    So long as it's a good professional job and the tints are pretty OEM I doubt they'd even notice.

    Why not ask them, then you will know for certain?

    I would go for it anyway. Worse case scenario, tint is not actually that hard to remove. A few years back I had a car with tinted windows (professionally done) and I knew it would be easier to sell it without the tint.

    I used Loctite cleaner spray on the windows after I peeled the tint off. You would never have known it was tinted!

    but with a lease car your on there insurance ?
    so you need to tell them so they can inform the insurance
    its a mod and could void the insurance if you have an accident.
