I am looking at getting window tints and in my research of some of the new films that 3M has come out with, i found this very helpful chart comparing all of their tint lines and specs.
Needless to say, i was looking at the crystalline or ceramic series but numerically they don't justify the cost when compared to the color stable series. My big thing is to get a guarantee against color fade which color stable and up has a a lifetime guarantee. I also wanted a non-metallicized tint since it can affect all kinds of wireless transmission and GPS. I also plan to tint the windshield as least as possible to help reject UV rays. I like to see where i am going quite frankly.
I did take into consideration the tint % since i couldnt compare apples to apples more like galas to red delicious. There might be some visible differences but that will remain to be seen (pun intended) when i go down to the tint shop and check it out.
Expiring Dec 31, 2012, 3M is offering a 15% coupon for crystalline and color stable window films at 3m authorized dealer/installers.
