Is this tint really as good as they say?

I'm looking to get my stock 2010 SE windows tinted and found a place nearby that offers LLumar window film. The description makes it seem like its pretty good and it comes with a lifetime manufacturer warranty. The place that installs it says its going to be $195 installed. I've never had to tint a vehicle before, so i thought id ask you guys.

Comments on the film and suggestions for other brands are welcome. Please keep in mind I'm trying to stay around the $200 mark.

LLumar is the shit!

dont do 3m, they have the damn logo in the tint! its gay.
SolarGuard is terrible too.
if seen and had experience with alot of tints. from what i know, Llumar is your best.

195 is just a tad high. but im not familiar with your area.

i normally pay no more than 180 for the entire car.

Hrmm, perhaps its the local tax rate that bumped it up there? I dont know, but if LLumar is good then its what i will do. I feel like im baking in my SE right now, darn altitude! Hope to get that put on in a couple weeks, help preserve my interior and keep me from getting sunburns while driving :)

I will post pics then :). Will be a few weeks until the wife gets paid.

Looks great misfire, every time i see a SES i cry a little. I really like the rear spoiler. I suppose i could purchase one and have it installed but am worried about shoddy work and trunk leaks. Not to mention paint matching, wife will go for tons more money... im sure :(.

I just recently got my first tint, and it was Llumar. I think it turned out looking really nice. I went super dark so I can't see too well at night, but that was expected. The dude I got it from gave me a deal for 5% on 5 windows for $200 flat. I have yet to wash my car afterwards, I'm still waiting for it to fully cure or whatever, but all of the bubbles have worked their way out and any hazyness is gone. As of now I have absolutely no complaints about it. I for sure recommend Llumar, Here are a few pictures of it on the day of.

180 is a good price.Im my area everyone is getting tint on everything so the price went up at all the local shops because they can make a buck off their loyal customers.Cheap near me is like 230 for a coupe.
