    If you wanna be a psuedo-baller like me and run Huper Optik ceramic, then Perfect Window Tint is Santa Ana is the shizzy.

    huper should be more than $400 on an SL. cuz u have to felt that ride. i hope u got the felts OC. how dark do u want it? cuz if u want it darker than LIGHT u dont want huper. huper has great specs for light films, but u can get the same specs with darker films.

    ceramics are very pricey.

    and how much you willing to spend?

    dont expect it to be any lower than $280. if its lower they arent doing the car right, or putting the right type of tint you need.

    here is a list of GOOD films for that car:
    huper ceramic
    formula one pinnacle
    llumar atx
    3m CS

    and if you get a ceramic make sure the shop knows how to install it. most ceramics arent meant for autos, they started as an architectural film. so it has to be put on the right way or it will haze. hit me up on pm if u got some detailed questions

    I did 40 sides and rear and 60 windshield (yes I did felts, thanks for the heads up). It was $600. I did have my dad's CL done at the same time, so he brought the price down a little.

    I think he quoted me $480 without the windshield, another $200 with the windshield, and then I asked if he'll do both cars for $600 each and he agreed.

    huper optik is dope! i paid more though =( i think my front windshield was 240 or 250 and the sides n rear was 500. :shrug: worth it still. black on black is brutal in hawaii.
    you should look into formula one if a shop nearby has it. i hear formula one is a cheaper, thinner, easier to apply alternative to huper. supposedly has a little less heat rejection but i havent personally tried it though.

    formula one pinnacle is their ceramic. its a ceramic blend so u can still go darker, the one major complaint about ceramics. the other complaint is its shrinkability, most cars have to be done in pieces like in the early 90's cuz it doesnt shrink good.

    formula one and most llumar films are 1.5 mil which is optimal for installation. huper is 2 mil i believe. F1 pinnacle has great specs.

    i found a HP high performance green from one of my distributors you think 30% will be too dark or should i still try to find the 50% ....?

    30 will be too dark IMO. the 50 has just the right amount of green

    Not to threadjack but,

    Any insight on SuntekHP50Blue? I guess they have an even lighter shade too. It's an idea I've been on the fence about but with blue it can eithier go really well or really WACK, Lol.

    -back to the topic, everyone has pointed you in the right direction. You'll be safe with the shops already mentioned.

    Thanks in advance
