Here's the results I ended up with: Formula1 Pinnacle 30% all around- overall I'm super surprised by the results. No scratches, bubbles, warps - not one and I looked over each window for like 6 minutes. There is some minor streaking that I can barely see, even when I squint. I'm told it should disapear very soon as the film dries. Overall though I couldn't be happier with the results. It looks like factory.

Here are some pics, I'll post real ones if the weather co-operates later. Today it's been super cold and raining.

Just made my appointment to have it tinted tomorrow. I think I'm gonna go with 35%, seems to be the perfect amount after looking all the pictures IMO. Hopefully it comes out looking as good as the rest of these.

Well just got the car back from the tint shop, I went with the Formula One Pinnacle 35. The car looks amazing, and just from the short ride home I could tell a difference in the temperature level inside the car(its 85 & sunny here in NC today). I was scared that the 35 would be to lite but is turned out to be exactly the look I was goin for; private feel while still looking factory and classy. There is no hit of green, blue,or bronze which I did not want just a nice charcoal gray and it is not too reflective like some other tints Ive seen. The legal limit here in NC is 35% on all windows with a 3% leeway. The installer told me it read right at 32% so I'm kinda pushing the envelope. I guess the factory glass is around 97% light transmission. As everyone else here has said and may be needless to say, I highly recommend this brand of tint.

Would love to post pics but I have no camera or smart phone to do so.

I'm not familiar with flikr, but if you have a direct link to the image (not the webpage it's on), then you use the "Insert Image" button:



It opens a dialog box where you enter the direct link to the image.



Notice that it uses the IMG & /IMG html coding.
