Default So, what do I have?

All this made me wonder what I have. My dealer said they used "35% LUMAR FORMULA ONE" on my 350. Hmmm. A little research shows me that LLumar and Formula One are two different companies. I'm betting that I have Formula One, since they said 35%. LLumar doesn't have anything on their website about 35, but Formula One http://www.formulaone.com/ does. They have what they call "classic" (dyed), and "pinnacle" (ceramic). Dealer charged me $395 for pinstripe and tint, so it could be either 'classic' or 'pinnacle'. I have no issues with my GPS. Anyone know how to tell what it is, by looking at it, or some other way?

Not yet I guess that since I'm a very careful driver and keep a low profile, I haven't caught their attention yet. Let's hope it stays that way

Sewell uses Formula One tint, I askeded their techs yesterday. Also, the 'Classic' is the only non-metallic tint Formula One offers, so that's probably what we have.
