I got a coupon for tinting with 3M FX HP,or 3M Crystalline for $150. Since I live in Texas and am interested in heat rejection I'll probably go with the Crystalline at 40%. I haven't had a car tinted before.

3M window film is average quality film. With that said, Cystalline is probably their best, or one of their best, for car windows and that is a steal of a price for it installed. It is usually two to three times that much (for some reason, people are willing to pay big bucks for the 3M name, even though 3M does not make their own window film).

I saw a picture of a camaro with the stripes and brought it to the dealer when we were about to wrap up the sale. When asked if they could do it they said yes and would not be a problem. I already had a quote from a local place and found out it was the one the dealer used. It delayed me picking up the car for two days but I think it was worth it. Makes the car stand out a little from the other Focus in the area. I have the titanium handling package and wanted a little bit of a more sporty look.

Like the overall look of the tint...but what's with the racing stripes? lol Never understood why people get those things unless it's a muscle car.

I like the look if it. I know not everyone likes stripes on a car unless it is a muscle car.

I don't even like them on muscle cars, but that's just my worthless opinion.
