thats not a bad idea. or if you like the car enough to keep it, you can just lower your deductible, wait like a day so itís not suspicious, throw a brick through the glass, then raise the deductible back up after itís replaced.

Depending how bad off it is you're probably better paying a professional. I've taken tint off (successfully) from a few cars and my friend's M3 was just chipping away in pieces and not coming off in the big sheet. Hired a local dude who had it 100% removed and perfectly done within 2 hours. We have no idea what he used.

We used the trash bag trick, Windex w/ ammonia, straight ammonia, a heat gun, a steamer, etc and it wasn't budging

Do not follow these guys advice. That rear defroster will never work again if you put a razor up against it.
Can you comprehend?. Read my post again before quoting.

Really tough to get the newspaper on there without it ripping. That ammonia hit too.

Also in this pic, evidence of heat gun damage.

I used a steamer like this one on my side and rear windows.

Amazon Amazon


The factory tint peeled away effortlessly.

^^^ I used a similar steamer but from Walmart. Had to fill it up with water every so often but it did the job. The crappy tint on my old car was baked on from heat, likely the car was parked outside 99% of the time.
