Re: Best Window Tint Brands?

If there is any place with a problem over time, it would be where rear windows have those differently-sized dots at the top of the window. Those provide a sort of sunscreen effect, but because they have a raised surface, it can also prevent the tint from remaining flexed enough to touch the glass over the curing time. Those dots are where the DIY installers have problems using those knock-off "3M/llumar/solargard" films. On your inspection of the tint job before you leave the shop, pay extra attention to the top part of the rear windshield window and look for any places that the tint is not is not sticking to the window glass due to those dots. If it's a big enough problem to you, have the shop work out those air gaps preventing the tint from touching the glass between those dots.

Re: Best Window Tint Brands?

In 2013 I lost my 2nd Gen7 and got my 3rd, and this is my 3rd car with Llumar. I'm quite satisfied since it doesn't turn purple and sticks to the glass on all windows. It was professionally installed.
