    Has anyone tried mixing tinting brand between fronts and rears? was the change noticeable?

    Since I don't spend much time at the back of my vehicle and someone on here mentioned that most heat come from the front windows, I was thinking of just getting the 3m Color Stable about 20% for the rears (175$). Then the front, I was gonna get Air Blue 80 nano-ceramic film from Llumar (125$). For a total of $300 + tax. Opinions and feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    I decided to stay MD legal and went 45% all the way around. No front strip as of yet.[​IMG]

    I was told I had to do 50% to be MD legal, which is what I got.

    I think it depends on the film. MD legal is 35% but windows already have factory tint.

    Yea, I was taking into account the factory 70% (as I understand it) leaving 50% to equal the 35%.

    Dealer tints all their cars during prep, so don't know percentage.
    QUESTION: The third brake light cover keeps falling off, because it was removed to put tint on. Anyone else having this problem? I suspect once the snaps are undone, they won't work again, so need a new cover with fresh snaps.

    Love the 5% tint on your vehicle. Is it hard to see out at all during the evenings? Mine is 20% all around, and while I like it, sometimes I wish it could just be a tad darker lol.

    As discussed in a another thread, did anyone here experience the "refraction issue" from the rear windshield, post-tint?

    Also the prices mentioned here are significantly lower than what I am being quoted here in N. San Diego. Starting prices are around $250 for entry-level 3M films for just the back windows (with lifetime warranty of course). Do I need to negotiate the price down?

    I have the refraction issue, I think there's not a whole lot you can do about it. Luckily there aren't a ton of cars at my 5 AM sprint to work in the dark so I'm not overly bothered by it.
