In your pictures the blue candy looks very nice. When I looked at one in person... it looked almost sky blue... does it change based on ambient lighting conditions? I wish I could get 20% here in illinois :( 35% all around is the lowest we can go legally.

^^ The Blue Candy does change depending on the light. Sometimes it appears almost like a teal or turquoise color. I've gotten quite a few comments about it.

I picked this up and am in the process of installing it myself, without any experience. Only did 2 windows, but so far so good, fits perfectly and really cheap.

I see too many tint jobs go terribly wrong from either improper install or poor quality films. For me it's better to just pay for a pro to do it and have a lifetime warranty.
