they tint the back just like they tint all the other windows

and no, it does not void the warranty. tint is aesthetic.

Yes to BBAtl6, and assuming it's done properly, the tint can be just as easily removed as it was applied.

I did have an issue with my SolarGard tint twice, however. I still have no idea why this happens, but for some reason, when light comes through my back window (most noticeable at night with headlights), it blurs the light and I can hardly see out the back window (Daytime shot: http://img47.imageshack.us/img47/2083/img0771lm7.jpg Just magnify that problem 20x for night)

I had the tint shop remove it under warranty and relay the film, but strangely enough, it happened again. I still have no clue why, but I've just sucked it up and gotten used to it for now. I'm not too sure why I don't read about this problem either...

you arent supposed to clean tint film with windex. just clean it with a soft soap (baby soap) and water mixture

you should try a different brand film like Suntek or 3M. To my knowledge, those are two of the best brands out there.

and was that picture taken in the dunwoody area? it looks familiar

I think when I run across some excess cash one day, I might have the back window retinted. The picture's actually taken right near Briarcliff and North Druid Hills inside the perimeter, very close to where I live.

Stoners Invisible glass is a great window cleaner as well.
