.

I think our cars shut off head lights and interior lights even if you forget to after a certain amount of time. I know the interior ones do, but not 100% about the headlights. I would say your good for atleast a 1/2 hour though for sure.

PS: Did you get any pics of that tint yet?

depends... just the radio, it can run for hours. If you have a couple amps with subs and they're pounding then prob less than 30 min.

I highly doubt that... but it's a great idea for automakers.
