Since the weather is finally warming up, I've decided to get my DB Z tinted with 35% tint. I shopped around and found a place my friend recommended to be the most appealing shop (looks clean & professional).

I wanted to go with Llumar tint, since that's what everyone talks about but it so happens that the shop doesn't use Llumar. They use a tint called FormulaONE. I never heard of FormulaOne, so I wasn't sure. I wanted to use the highest quality tint, which I thought was metal-laced, but it ends up their best tint is ceramic (so they say). The reason I wanted to go with metal-laced was because it doesn't fade. They say ceramic tint won't fade, but ceramic tint hasn't been out in the market as long as metal-laced tints. So I'm kind of skeptical.

Do any of you know anything about FormulaONE or ceramic tints? I could go to another shop who carries Llumar, but this shop really impressed me not only because it was clean & professional looking, but also the fact that they computer cut all the tint so I get an exact match. No razorblading.

They said the install will take about 2 hours, does that sound right? If you guys say that ceramic tint/FormulaONE sucks, I'll go shop elsewhere.

I dont know much about tint, but install time should take 1-2 hours (depending on how busy they are)

Illegal? Why is ceramic tint illegal or do you mean tint in general is illegal.

Oh and thanks for the response to the install time ToyKilla.

Tint is illegal in PA.

I heard ceramic tint is great. It's still a new product from what I understand though. I don't understand the differences very well either, so I'm not much help. Sorry.

I do know that TK is right on install time though.

Aloha,
Sorry so late with the post. My Formula One tint is great! 35%, max amount legal in Hawaii for autos. Interior stays cooler than metallic tints I've experienced. My truck has 5% on the rear glass and 35% on sides (metallic), and it's warmer than the Z.

A Hui Hou
