Cleaning Tinted Windows

I am getting the windows on the Mondeo tinted by Pentagon tomorrow and want to know, what product I can use and what I can't use on them and when is it safe to start cleaning them.

Thanks.
Ronnie

Don't think the AG Glass Polish is safe, I'm sure it says on the back of the bottle, for cleaning the film side of tinted windows you need Fast Glass if your using AG stuff.

AG Glass polish says on the bottle not to use on tints but to use fast glass instead. Though I did use the polish before reading the instructions to no ill effect

When I had Pentagon tint the windows on my last car they gave me a bottle of 'Pentagon' glass cleaner that is really very good (I'm stil using it to this day).

I'd ask them if they still do it and can they give you a bottle.

AG Fast Glass is safe for tint film, I've been using it for years on mine and it's fine.
