There are reviews and comparisons online. I also saw you tube videos describing it as well.

I personally use LLUMAR tint. Have had it on two vehicles in the hot FL sun for several years, not even a single bubble. As an added bonus, Llumar tint comes with a lifetime warranty, that lets you take your car in for free at any llumar location in the US. I won't be changing any time soon based on my own personal results.

I've always used 3M tint. Very good quality and quite affordable. Never had any issues with them.

I use LLUMAR as well, be sure to spring for the ceramic too over the metallic.

Wow, $400 for tint? that's crazy, I paid $145 to get the wife's town car done, and that was 4 windows, the rear window and the strip on the windshield...

Find another installer who uses it so you know if it's the material or the person.
$145 for all that is dirt cheap, who's film did they use?

They do 3M here for $125 for the basic side and rear windows and the front strip If you get the ceramic I think the quote was about $200.

I had my Challenger's windows tinted last week with the 3M film. They have done 3 of my vehicles now never a problem.

I went with 35% on driver and passenger side glass, 20% on small side windows and rear window. Legal and looks great all for $185.00 + tax.

I got the llumar lifetime tint installed on my RT for $165 in Merritt Island FL last year. Excellent product!

I have 3M Colorstable put on mine and that has a lifetime warranty and will not color fade. I paid like $250 i think when i had it done. IT is a good quality tint and a lifetime warranty.

Anything below the colorstable line can be subject to fade and not worth the money in my opinion. The ceramic tint they make is thicker and more expensive and not really huge thermal gains. The next above that is their crystalline which is very expensive and for those really who have sensitive skin and what not. For most, the colorstable is sufficient. I researched it quite a bit since i moved to AZ and my last 3M tints (non-colorstable) faded in the sun out here in about a year.
