Does any1 know a good garage in Sydney area?? What films would you recomend?? Is Sol-ace any good? Im looking for quality tint that will last atleast 5 years, with max UV protection and atleast 50% heat blocking.
I'm pretty sure most reputable places all use quality films. There are not too many film manufactures, just alot of rebranding/badging nowadays, alot of it is 3M (hate those bastards).
I believe darkest 'legal' tint is 35%. Some guys may do 'afterhours' work off the books if you want darker but I'd say you could kiss goodbye to any warranty.
If you stick to the bigger shops you should be safe, but you pay a premium. At least you know they will be around in 5 yrs if there are any hassles.
I just had 35% done on my Super Black. They had a special for $175 USD (regularly $195 USD) here in Oregon. It looks better than nothing but I wish I had gone darker...at least a little darker.
But I also didn't want my wife to get pulled over for having illegal tint. That would have been very, very bad. I'm legal and it looks good...but something around 25% would be ideal on a Super Black IMO.
DJ777, I am pretty sure that some places will try to stick you for extra dollars because they treat the zed as a prestige car!
When I got quotes (haven't gone thru with install yet) most of the places said that.
I countered & said there were only two doors, so basically 3 windows (not counting those little ones) so they would use much less film etc...
Depending on the film the cheapest I could get was $250.00
next grade up film was $375.00
If you've got a model with the tire pressure minitor, the only guaranteed way to keep it functioning correctly is to NOT use metallic tint film. My cousin had problems with it. As long as his windows were down, it functioned okay. Windows up, he kept getting low pressure warnings, no pressure indication or bad readings. Go ceramic, highly scratch resistant, 35% tint to stay legal (most places). The manufacturer (Formula One) says it has a 52% heat reduction and blocks 99% UV and has a lifetime warranty. The quoted price was $425. I knew the owner of the tint shop, so I paid way less.

ps. going to put on "Roo-Guards"? LOL!
Yeah - spill the beans Frosty.
I need to get a new tint on my other car and certainly don't want it to scratch up in the first few months.
I did a search for tint film and they seem to start at around $200 and go up from there. However, I am confused as to what is good and what's not????
