Song's Tint Master (STM) in Los Angeles is where we had ours tinted. Madico Onyx rocks.

Update: I've got the huper optiks installed on my front windows, so far it looks really nice. Now I just have to wait until the weather warms up so I can feel the difference.

The hupers are green in color actually, now I have it on my car. It's not as dark green as that pic you shown it's more like an oem Lexus windows green.

I priced it all out and decided that Huper was too expensive.

I went with the Formula One ceramic. Just as good and half the price.

Unit 74 - Where did you go to get the Formula One installed, and about how much did it cost?

Go to Sunshield in Sherman Oaks! (At the 101 and Sepulveda Blvd) I paid $160 last fall for my new IS350 and they did a GREAT job in 2 hours. (I had my last 3 cars done there too) I have NAV and there is no need to get the expensive ceramic tint (Some say plain tint interrupts the signal) unless your main reason to get tint is to keep the car cool because it is parked outside 24/7.

Default Sunshield Tint

I got the tint he suggested. It was the standard $165 job. I thought I needed to get the high-end stuff but he said its not necessary unless you are looking to keep your car cool (temperature-wise.....)

It is doing great. This is my 3rd car and none of them had problems. No bubbles, scratches, fading, etc.. I attached a picture I took a few weeks ago. Not the best view but should give you an idea.
