depends on what Shade of black you want. If you want deep black go with 3m, otherwise Suntek and Johnson is a good brand and qualty also and offers warranty.

I have 20 all around.

i agree! i was a bit afraid to tint the fronts because of the cops around here, but its hard to avoid sometimes. thank goodness for the auto feature on the window buttons.

i think limo tint all around looks the best for the 2IS, ahahaha. but it's the visibility issues that prevent me from doing that.
