I'm considering either FormulaOne or Huber Optik ceramic tint, has anyone compared the way either of these looks to the back window tint?
Wow, thats serious. I prefer colored glass more than a coated tinting.I think I am going to have the factory light tint removed and put the ceramic tint in its place.
Which one are you using? And what VLT%? I think 25% would match the back stock tint but I don't think they make it in that.To answer your question it should match up just fine.
Metallic interferes with GPS, Cell, AM/FM, Radar reception.What are they advantages of non-metallic versus metallic?
Which Solarguard? Does it look slightly green, and is it color stable / lifetime warranty?I got 30% huper (Darkest they make) over the factory tinted areas and then I got 20% solarguard (Traditional dyed tint) over the front door windows.
So when you add Huper to the factory tint, it loses its reflectivity? It must be a lot darker then the 20% fronts, since its adding 30% tint to rear 20%.I prefer dark windows but definitely wanted to keep the heat out which is why i did as much HUPER as possible. The 2 front doors got solarguard so everything will match perfectly....and it does!
Which shop did it? I'm looking for a place in the area.The place I went to had a cool display of a heat lamp in a rotating box with 4 panels of glass on it..
What shop was this?Huper will not match the factory tint, as seen in another members post. That said, I have had several cars tinted with HUPER OPTIK. It is by far the best tint I have ever used/seen...etc. It actually does do what tint was designed for KEEPING HEAT OUT!!! It is unreal. Surpasses traditional dyed tints by milestones!
That said, when it came time for my rig, I got 30% huper (Darkest they make) over the factory tinted areas and then I got 20% solarguard (Traditional dyed tint) over the front door windows. The match is great. The huper gives the privacy of darker tinted glass without being so dark (Due in part I believe by the reflection it creates).

Huper is way more expensive than traditional tint, much thicker and takes longer to cure. It is supposedly a bigger PITA to install as well.
The place I went to had a cool display of a heat lamp in a rotating box with 4 panels of glass on it. 1 pane had no tint, 1 had traditional, 1 had 30% Huper , and the other had (I forgot the name but it is basically clear Huper Optik). You can easily feel the heat from all the panes without Huper. I mean alot of heat where you couldn't hold your hand in front for too long. The panes with Huper you felt only the slightest temp change. It truly cuts down on the heat.
Pics?In regards to the Solarguard, mine matches the rear+ Huper perfectly. The rear factory tint eliminates the reflectiveness from the Huper. Everything looks phenomenal!
Not sure to be honest with you. Here are some pics. Keep in mind that depending on where the sun is at will vary how the tint looks. When it comes in directly from windshield, it makes the front doors lighter.Pics?
Do you know which Solar Gard? Their high quality tint with lifetime warranty is metallic. The non-metallic is lower quality, not color stable, and only has 5 year warranty.
