    Getting ceramic vs nanocarbon/dyed makes a huuge difference. Anyone who tells you they are the same, either has an agenda or doesn't know tint very well. The TSER may be close within 10-20% but, the other stats like the ir transmittance of heat will be very very noticeable. I had a dealer install nano carbon vs ceramic and knew something was wrong because of the way the sun felt on my face as I would drive. Later confronted him and got it fixed, and you can feel the sun much more harshly even though the actual heat being rejected is close. It makes a huge difference in comfort. Don't go for the lower end ones to save $50-150. The upgrade is worth it.

    I've driven using 3m color stable, 3m basic, suntek cxp, suntek cir, pinnacle1, and airblue. The last 3 were all excellent, the first 3 were meh.

    @LnG, what does being muslim have to do with anything?

    Wow.
    Those are all words, but I'm not sure there's a coherent thought in there. And finished with a bit of racism. Awesome.

    Quoted for posterity (i.e. they can't just delete the evidence)

    It really just shows how barbaric you are and how pitiful your debating skills are. Try again.

    I guess I got the wrong tint then!

    Muslims are frequently targets and once the target is executed they make up some bizarre reason why the execution was "warranted".

    I live in san diego where its sunny 90% of the time, so for me its a no brainer at least for the front 2 windows. If you live in more foggy places, some prefer the sunny feeling. But yes ceramic is awesome.

    I called to ask about the tint and now its not so clear what he actually put on. It is either the Johnson InsulatIR or the LLUMAR CTX....maybe neither. lol.

    I paid quite a bit of money for it, am I supposed to get a certificate with it or just some obscure receipt?

    For llumar you get a warranty card, for johnson not sure. Johnson InsulatIR is imo comparable to llumar pinnacle1 as it's a ceramic film. It's preferable to the CTX generally for future reference.
