Default Window Tinting

Seems that my move to Florida has resulted in the need to tint my Boxster's windows.

I'm looking at ceramic films, so as not to interfere with my cell phone and GPS, and so far the local tint stores have suggested Global Window Films CDP and Llumar CTX. The specs on the Global are a bit better and it costs less, $189 for the two side and the rear window; the LLumar is $215. I'm sure if I go to a third store I'd get another recommendation - they each seem to have a "prime" vendor.

Any recommendations as to which manufacturer to choose, or is there another I should look into?

Also, any recommendations for a dealer in the North Tampa area?

TIA,

Ed

I had Llumar ceramic on my 2013 Altima and was very pleased. Zero effect on cell or data signals, really blocked the heat well. I went legal on all windows and clear 3M on the windshield. The armor all on the dash lasted FOREVER after the clear windshield film.

Car cooled down significantly faster as well. I'm in Orlando area and went to Darth Shader Tints (Owner/sole proprietor is Sharon; great gal). She specializes in high end cars (BMW 7 series, Audi R8s, Bentleys, Porsches, Vettes, and true classic cars) and uses great care during installs. She is not the fastest or cheapest by a long shot, but she uses a precision plotter to cut all her pieces and her work is just immaculate.

I traded that Altima in at Carmax and they thought the tint was factory.

Anyways, Sharon specializes in Ceramic tints and typically fits Llumar, but can source whatever you would prefer. She has a Facebook page; search for "Darth Shader Tint" if you're interested.
