Tint, 3M vs. Solar Guard

1. I will be tinting my 04 g35X in a couple weeks. Just wanted some opinions and advice on what brand to use and if Ceramic Tint (Huper Optik) is worth it in NYC?

2. Can any NYC members recommend somewhere reputable in NYC or NJ where I can get a professional tint job done with Lifetime warranty?


Thanks in advance.

Ceramic is awesome for when you can't go dark and need to stop the heat. Other than that it is not worth it IMO.

I was going to get Huper, but they don't offer really dark tints. If you don't want to get a dark tint, then get the Huper. A lot of people say it's the best you can get for the darkness.
I ended up getting 6% solar guard metallic on my rear windows and it stops allot of heat, definitely worth it. Unfortunately front tint is limited to 70% total in Cali (and Japan), which means no after market tint, boo.

metallic screws up your radio, nav and cell ception.

dark tints are for drug dealers and gang banger wannabees (well, thats what my moms always said )

I have the 3M on my G. Seems to be holding up well. I was told ceramic tends to interfere w/ radio reception, but I had it on my Maxima and didn't have a problem w/ reception.

Same here. It has a lifetime warranty so I'm not worried. I know people on here say 3M sucks but I dont really know why. It looks really good and is strong.

Go with ForumlaOne Pinnacle Series

I would go with FormulaOne Pinnacle series ceramic tint. It has the same performance as Huper Optik, but is cheaper and the film is thinner since it's actually designed for automotive use:



Heat rejection performance of this film is awesome, and you have more choices for how dark you want to go.

Thanks again everyone! I've decided to go with FormulaOne Pinnacle series ceramic tint, 35% in NYC FTW! The others, 3M, Huper and Solar are great tints, I just prefer the "Factory/OEM" look of the F1.

Either going to James Tint or Lorenzo in the BX.
