I have never got it.
Why the love for tinted windows?
Is there a particular reason?
I live in a small gated community and 80% of residents have tinted windows on their cars.
Mine are clear as day. Perhaps I am the only one with nothing to hide!

@MugundaMan,
Good question..mine are also clear.The windows are also supposed to keep the car cool inside..I don't know whether that is true.

Due to the
1. heat tints protect the cars interior
2. Security
3. Apparent “cool factor”
4. Coz the dealership threw in a window tint with the car 😁
I own shares in KCB,CYTONN, BRK.B, Almasi Beverages and a few other private small businesses

@Chaka & Horton
I would imagine the tint would trap even more heat inside a warm car and cook the seats and occupants even more. Solar ovens and heaters are usually painted black on the inside to trap incoming heat.
As for security, I would think tint would make things insecure because the gangstas would imagine something valuable is hidden inside!

I have tinted every window in my car even the windscreen is tinted, why did I do this except for the fact that many mombasans have done it?
1-Heat and sun the tint keeps out most sun a heat and this keeps the car mint, I recently sold my toyota 110 at the same price I got it
Thanks to tint and AC.
2- Privacy I feel more comfortable in a tinted car not for security or anything but just privacy, especially from looks from wananchi in
matatus with their judging looks (mmmmh kaone na gari ya loan)
Clear windows make it seem like you are outside, or in a house with no curtains .
-if you are carrying bibi number 2 nobody has to see you can move stealthy.
3-Security if I park my car somewhere not very safe the tint keeps the opportunistic thief away as the can't see into the car, you can comfortably leave some valuables in the car.
4-Also for security it's hard for one to tell how many people are inthe car.
5-I sing alot inthe car and dance around in my seat, I surely do this because I know just like the shower I can't be seen

1. SECURITY

2. Slay queen

3. Refer to no. 1

I regard security as very important, I have had several security brushes just because of driving in clear window.

One time, I was on Mombasa road, Bunyala roundabout after Nyayo stadium. I was not aware of Gormahia Vs AFC game, it was around 6pm after the match. Gor fans were so rowdy as they crossed the highway so they stopped all the cars, I was at the front/row 2. Between the front seat & drivers seat I had stuck a 1 Ltr bottle of "Altar Wine", I had received it as a present previous night it looked greenish like "VAT69". All of a sudden I saw goons/Gor fans surrounding my car, calling each other, I could hear them shouting VAT 69, VAT69.... waaaaa. This guys were all struggling to peep in clear windows. My car was the only car surrounded as I could see the others were okay.

Immediately something hit me its the alcohol, I picked it up and rolled down the window before they crash my window, and it was grabbed and smashed because of the tussle, the road opened and I sped off.....

I always TINT everything that needs tinting. I have learnt my lessons. Ata mbele ni nyeusiiiii ti ti ti.
I work so I can afford the amount of alcohol required to continue going to work

The only time you should be looking down on others is when you are helping them up.

how does it improve security, if one is jacked hapo ndani the thug can easily get by without being noticed, plus if cops start following you they might fire into the car assuming all are thugs.

I remember a case of a guy whose car number plate had been cloned and used on another car for a crime, then cops spotted his car and started following him and its the fact that they saw he was alone in the car and was not behaving erratically that they managed to stop him and ask some questions, with these tints bullets might have been fired and questions asked latter.
