Best tint?

21 posts in this topic

I have a 2014 Cadillac ATS that I'm looking to get the rear 3 windows limo and the from 2 legal tint (I'm in CA).

Here's what I have so far:

1. Llumar ATC - $260 or Suntek CXP ($60 more)

2. Madico USA Black Pearl NP - $189

3. Suntek Ceramic - $400

4. Suntek infrared ceramic - $350

5. Llumar ATC - $270 or Llunar CTX - $385

I live in San Diego, where it's nice weather year round so heat rejection isn't that big of a deal. I don't want much reflection.

Help please :)~

Yes, it has the same bad low angle haze and scratching as Carbon/CXP.

Llumar ATC is their base dyed window film, it is for looks only with very little help with heat rejection.  I would go with the Madico Black Pearl over it just because of the price point...ATC is not worth that much more.  Number 3 & 4 is the same film...they only have 1 Ceramic which is called CIR.  Out of all the options above, if you want the better quality film then go with Llumar CTX.  All of this depends on the quality of the shop though.  Another option if you want a quality black film is 3M Color Stable Carbon...it will be priced somewhere around CTX and CXP/CIR.

I have a price for $300 of 3M Color Stable and CTX for $385. Which is the better film & price option?

CTX has slightly higher heat rejection, but CS has a darker appearance and still rejects a good amount of heat.  In your case I would go with CS since heat rejection is not a huge priority.  Out of the 2 brands, that is my favorite looking film.
