Yeah I'm really not sure where I found it... Probably a Google image search, but it's pretty clear to read for me when zooming in on mobile and desktop.

The summer heat in Texas has been brutal, so I finally got some much needed tints. I went with Llumar Formula1 Pinnacle 30% Ceramic.
I went with 30% all around because I much prefer the uniform look opposed to the mismatch. I also am not a fan of super dark tints, especially on this car, so I debated for a long time about 50% vs. 30%. I think the lighter (compared to say, limo), uniform tints look classier on luxury cars.
The 30% can look very dark at times and very light at times depending on the angle and lighting.
So far, I am happy with the looks and performance. There is a huge noticeable IR heat rejection difference. So much so, that I will probably shell out the $200 to get the front windscreen tinted, eventually. Definitely worth it in Texas.
You can see from these pictures how depending on the angle, it can look very dark or very light.

The tint looks great! it was the very first thing I did to my LS as the heat in Georgia can also get pretty high!

With the windscreen tinted that will even it out nicely
