Default 60% Huper Optik tint pics wanted

Anyone have pics of 60% Huper Optik tint all round on a 3GS? Ideally a black 3GS?

I want my car to look close to factory, not compromise visibility, get heat reduction, and not affect interior GPS reception.

Henry - isn't this the same tint you have?

Yes, Henry does have it but I don't think it's 60%. Seems darker to me but I'm sure he'll chime in.

lol ok, you guys really stalk me well!!

yes, i have huper optik, but i have the 50%. keep in mind, i have black interior, so my tint tents to look a bit "darker". if you have light interior, 50% will look "lighter".

60% is really really light, i have seen it before and i couldn't really tell there was any tint at all. from my installer, he said he usually recommends 60% only for the front windshield. for the sides, it's too unnoticeable. but if that's what you want, then i think you are good

i go to STM as well, i really only trust that place

1SWTGS, that's very sweet info, thanks!!!!!! so during night time it's 65% and during the day it goes up to 57%? do they have other darkness selection? how about price wise? from the mfest thread it seems like price is more or less the same as the huper?

seems like something new to try for my next car

That photochromatic film is really cool. But I don't like the greenish colour.

What colour is the Huper Optik Ceramic 60?

Where are pics of your car? Your profile doesn't have a garage gallery.

Henry's car is stunning. I love those wheels, the aero kit, the fogs, and the tips.

haha thanks guys, appreciate it. but yes, for example from 2nd pic, you can see that it's pretty darn light.

from the last pic you can see from a distance what the color is like, it's on the grayish / brownish finish i say
