New Car - Suntek vs Llumar

Recommended Posts

I just purchased a new car and I'm looking to have the windows tinted. I know everyone recommends Crystalline, however there are no installers around me for almost 2 hours. Locally, I have two options 1) Suntek and 2) Llumar. Both shops have the same warranty, and both have great reviews. Suntek shop with more positives between the two. Price not being a factor, which would you go with between Suntek CXP, Suntek CIR, or Llumar CTX? I'm expecting Llumar because everything I see on here says Suntek sucks. 

 

The shop I went to pushed me to Suntek CXP over CIR because the CIR had more of a green tint in the sample vs the CXP charcoal and you get similar performance (sales talk). I figured you all would have a better knowledge base than someone trying to sell me a film. If I'm going to do it, might as well do it right the first time. 


Going with the usual 20% on the sides and adding 50 or 70% on the windshield this time around. Will likely do 50%, but I've never had a windshield tinted before so I haven't decided for fear of going too dark.

Go with Llumar.  The scratch coat on Suntek is not good.  I recommend Llumar's Air80 for the windshield, great film.  I personally prefer Llumar's IRX over CTX, but I am a Llumar dealer.

No matter the film it will need to be replace after 7-10 years. 


I am not worried about the life span, I have yet to keep a vehicle longer than 3 years in the past 18 years. I just want to make sure I am buying a quality film. 
 

I have always put Llumar on in the past, but it seems everyone locally is recommending the shop that uses Suntek, which is why I asked.

Not necessarily. Tinting methods , geographical location and parking habits play a factor in that generalization .

Not necessarily. I'm a SolarGard and a Llumar dealer.  I've had SolarGard on my vehicle since 2008 and still looks perfect. I would do Llumar over Suntek..  IRX and AIR80 on windshield.
