I wasn't talking about Crystalline - I was meaning the other end of the spectrum - old polyester dyed film if it is just for the windshield and privacy is the concern.
Primarily for heat reduction, typical temperatures here are 80 to 100F year-round.

In that case, you probably want the higher quality film and maybe a lighter (50%) film.

^This. Those that have the 50% say that it greatly cuts down on interior heat while not impeding night time driving. High quality, light percentage

Makes sense.

On my other car I now have 20% all around including windshield! Done by previous owner, great in the day time but quite dark at night, I'm somewhat used to it but I wouldn't do this now on the Focus.

Is this a good price for Huper Optik and Air Blue 80?

Hi Everyone,

I was quoted $900 for Huper Optik Ceramics 30% all around and sunroof and $250 for Air Blue 80 on the windshield. Is this a good price? I'm in Los Angeles, CA.

Thanks.

You are looking at some pretty exotic film.

I was quoted $180-200 for the side and rear windows and maybe $50 for the windshield. I didn't ask about the sunroof, so I would say around $25 for that.

That is obviously just standard film, but I would think somewhere in the neighborhood of $500-600 would be reasonable for ceramics.

Don't overpay for tint as you can see in this thread it seems 200-300 seems the going rate for quality tint and if the shop is giving a lifetime warranty make sure the shop isnt a here today gone tomorrow business. I had my 93 Eclipse done back in '95 with Llumar tint and 10 years later I caught and edge on a side window and it tore slightly and it was replaced no questions asked and the same shop did my Focus with the same. $230 out the door with 20% all around and 15% on the hatch and sunroof and it really does cut the heat.
