-1 Pro audio sound on Mcfadden and Harbor. Took them 6 hrs. to get my tint on with an early appointment. Oh weeks later bubbles appearing on all windows and the tints we're coming off. They even drove my car around for their own errand use because I checked my mileage before I left and scraped the edges of my front bumper. This happen recently and never coming back.

depending on your budget, they might be priced out of your price range. lifetime warranty tint was $220, but it's held up for 2.5 years and counting. ymmv.

I would be careful with lifetime warranty offer by various tint shops. Make sure you keep the receipt (in your glove compartment?) as some shop won't keep records of it. Some places will try to blame you for their tint peeling as well, forcing you to pay more to get it redone.

Might as well drive to LA and do it at CA tint for around 120 with lifetime warranty.

+ Cali Tint in Rosemead across the from rhs.

I copy the post of m-fest STM Advanced Window Film Solutions/PhotoCHromatic film
Hello Fellas,
Just new to our product line is our PhotoChromatic film.

We have been researching new films to carry for those who are looking for a truely OEM look and we have found the perfect blend of High Energy Rejection (54%), High Visible Light Transmission (65% VLT) and it's completely 100% dye free and metal free. It also rejects 99.9% of UV A & B and and IR rejection of 78%. This film out performs my Huper Oprik Ceramic 60% by 10% greater heat rejection and it's 5% lighter....Incredible numbers.

The truely unique characteristics of this film, other then the performance, is that it turns 8% darker (57% VLT) in daylight and returns to it's orignial VLT in none daylight. This helps with some added glare reduction during daytime driving.

We are offering this as a group buy for the first 5 members @ 20% off retail.

Retail cost 4 door sedan is $600.00 for 4 doors and rear WS, $250 for FWS alone.

We are asking for $100 deposit to secure your spot.

cool now i at least have a website. i am looking into it right now. the good thing going for it is that SMT uses it and says it performs as well as huper. now if a huper dealer says its good, normally it is. the bad is that I and many others have not heard of it. i have got in contact with somebody that does and he is going to tell me more about it tomorrow.
