I have Wincos tint (has a slight blue hue). Not the best, but it has 92% blockage of IR radiation and out performs many higher priced tints. I paid $400.00 for my tint from a local tint shop. They offer another lower grade called Madico Charcoal for $180.00. Both tints offer lifetime no fade tint. However, the Wincos tint is simply amazing at blocking heat. How do I know? Well, I had to get my side right drivers side tint removed because I couldn't pass inspection. I drove around 1 day without the Wincos and I had to use the air conditioner on highest settings just to cool the car (it's hot in Louisiana). In addition, I could literally feel the sun on my skin, as in, I completely forget how much protection high performance tint offers. High performance tint is well worth the price admission.

Sorry to hear that - I loved the crystalline and put it on my windshield and sunroof - it never turned purple, but the shop overheated it in a small area in the top corner, causing some distortion when looking at it from some angles.

The good news is 3M's warranty is VERY good, so the shop will apply a new sheet and eat the labor for free.

Basically that (5%) crystalline is crazy good - I don't even feel the sun on my face like I used to even when the sun is beaming directly through the front windshield anymore, and wouldn't otherwise even know there is tint at all.

Watch what you clean your tinted windows with. I had a ceramic coating applied to our 2016 Accord. Total cost was around 500 USD. I also had the front tinted with a 70% (clear) which was almost half the cost of the other 5 windows combined.

Many window cleaners on the market state that they are not safe for window tint and will turn them purple or blue. Look for a product that states it is safe for tint such as Invisible Glass by Stoner
