has anyone had any problems with the dots?

heard some tints turned out shitty from not being able to properly adhere to the glass or smth, nothing particularly linking to these shops but just in general

go with 15-20% tint, do not go with 5%. you will regret it, trust me....when you cant see SHIT at all trying to back that shit up.....it aint gonna be fun.



I had numerous friends and couple of my own vehicles tinted at kartoyz/n-motion, no problems whatsoever.

coupe rear back you are looking around $160-170, sedan you are looking at about $200

I have 15%, and I see perfectly fine at night.

Right now I regret not getting the 8%; however; I've never been in a car with 8% tint.

BUMPPP

Going to PH Solar this Friday to tint a 15' accord sedan and a 13' genesis coupe.

Quotes: $209 for rear windows and windshield regardless of sedan or coupe...
$45 on top for sun roof......

Product: Llumar ATC. 5 year warranty if peeling or bubbles. Lifetime warranty if colour defects (turning purple).

CASH only.

Will update once job is done..

Anything I should know about this product or this installer in particular before no turning back? Haven't seen many recent reviews.

One other question I had for those with Llumar ATC, ever experience disruptions/static to any signal communications (Navi GPS, Radio, Cellphone, etc) ?

TIA

Buddy and I went to get our cars tinted this afternoon at PH Solar Tint. No time was wasted and the crew there were excellent. Seem like a friendly family run place. Would definitely recommend. Shout out to Ronnie if you are on here!

Nixon @ Street Legal Tint did a great job on both mine and a buddy's car. Not the cheapest at 220 + tax but its quality work.

another vote for ph solar

did all 5 rears on my 07 focus for 210 tax incl with 5 year warranty. did he front two for an additional $40 each, for a total of $290 for all 7 windows.

Top quality work that was done FAST (in and out of the shop within an hour!)

I recommend them to whoever needs tinting done.

Nixon at street legal tint is the best I have seen so far. Did one of my cars and it was damn good service.
