Taillight/headlight tint

Recommended Posts

Luxe is about as good as it gets...dry install which IMO leaves a cleaner installation, 5 mil thickness so thick enough to protect from rocks but not so thick it is hard to install, shrinks well when heat hits it, and a good amount of shades/designs available.  The only downside it is pricey, but as long as you price your installations right, there is plenty of profit.  The only complaint I have is they no longer carry a yellow/blue which we do a decent amount of for that JDM/Euro look.  They came out with a new version 2 that didn't include those as of yet.  I did order Vvivid this week which has similar specs as Luxe to check out their yellow/blue.  I will post back once we try it out cause it is a decent amount cheaper than Luxe.  You can buy directly from Luxe or from SolarFX since they now carry it.

 

The other 2 main brands used in the industry are Lamin-X and Oracal 8300.  Lamin-X is a super thick 12 mil window film which makes it difficult to install on complex lights.  I also never like the color of the film when the light is shining through it.  The 2 lighter shades had a purplish look and the 2 darker shades had a brownish look.  Oracal 8300 is the most widely used film in the industry because, surprise surprise, it is the cheapest.  It is also a much thinner film, I believe it is 2.5 mil, which means it is fairly easy to install.  However, IMO it just doesn't look amazing on a vehicle...doesn't have a high-end luxury look like Luxe.

Vividd is a nice product for taillights. Done a number of them can’t say anything about putting  it on headlights I have only used Laminex for those as well as xpell

Haven't tried it yet, but same specs as Luxe and Luxe is as easy as it gets.

I've used both. Seems very similar for install. I think you can see the air release a bit more in the Vvivid.
