Got a wash, wax & tint today over at So Cal Tint in Montclair, CA. Just over $250 for the whole deal (including 15% AAA discount on Llumar, and "new car detail" to go through and clean up the interior a bit from some of the dust & particles I'd accumulated already).. :P

Freshly tinted & waiting for its bath:


Home & ready to cruise. Llumar Charcoal 35% around & 5% up top on the moonroof:

That looks sharp. I'm considering a tint job. I've got a couple questions...how is the visibility looking from inside out? And what are the chances that starts bubbling or peeling off in the future?

Like someone else said (I'm sorry I can't recall at the moment) it looks a lot darker in the pics than in person. Cool for the pics I suppose. :P From the inside, there isn't a whole lot of darkness or shading looking out. I can see everything just fine. Driving home very late last night (2AM), I could see other cars and various "whatevers" just fine, as well. The glare from trailing cars' headlights was dimmed nicely. The difference I could tell in the autodimming rearview mirror. Previously, everything had a pretty decent green tint to it (from the mirror), and now it's only very slight, so I'm guessing the mirror has to work less.

With Llumar, you get a transferable (if you move elsewhere, for example) lifetime guarantee on the tint. It should never ever fade or discolor, and if it does, you can take it to any place that does Llumar (with your warranty and receipt from original purchase/install) and they'll redo it for free. I'd assume it's the same for any bubbles or tears. If it's installed well, it shouldn't.. at least for a very long time. That's the job. If it does, take it back and have it redone. That's how it was explained to me, anyway.

^Nice.. If I didn't get the Platinum White, I probably would've gone with that Sterling Silver, as well. I like it. :)

Here's my new baby. Officially the first car I have bought myself. Tint is being done in 2 weeks and I am looking to put some black rims on the beauty.

^^ This is the first car I bought myself too and loving it so far.

It's just that it looks like birds like to poop on my car. Yesterday, some bird crapped on my car and it was a lot so it split into three parts down near my tail light. A few days back I parked under an electricity pole and came back to find my car with three separate points of bird crap on them. Three? Seriously? What's with my car and poop?
