Question Window Tint

OK its time to tint.
? is,
Car=300c
Color=Magnesium Pearl
I'm thinking of using the mirror style tint, with the factory chrome trim, I think it might look good.
What do you guys & gals think??

I have a magnesium colored car myself and here my 2 cents.

I don't think the current chrome trim set looks as good on magnesium as well as it does on darker colors, esp since there is so much more chrome on the top half of the car. Now that I see there are wheel well chrome trim kits I think that would bring more balance to the chrome on the car. On the other hand I think the mirror tint would look better on our color than on black, actually.

Pls post pics of what you do - I'm curious how that mirror trim would look if you go that way.

Hey crhemi... here's my thoughts.
Firstly, be sure whatever tint you use is non-metallic as there have been reports of radio and NAV interference with metallic-based film.

Secondly, I'm not a fan of the chrome pillars on any color as I feel they detract from the lines and magnify the fact that it's a 4-door. One thing that attracted me to this car, is the long, low chopped-top look. Tinting the windows helps them blend in with the black pillars and enhances the look of one long expansive piece of glass and makes the chopped-top look even more pronounced as the verticle lines all but disappear...


Be sure to post back and let us see which way you decide to go... it's your baby, there is no wrong way!

Your choices with window tint are cheap dyed film, which is the stuff that turns purple after a few years, or a metalic film, which will interfere with radio, cell phone, Nav reception, or ceramic film, which is expensive but has terrific performance.

There is really only one ceramic film - "Pinnacle" by Formula One. It's hard to find, but it won't interfere with reception and it has better numbers that even metalic films. My 300C cost me $300 to have done with this, and I eventually had to contact Formula One directly and the shipped the film to a dealer just for my car. Same story with a friend of mine - "Brewdude" on the board.

Don't let anyone talk you into Huper Optik. It is a ceramic film, but it's an architectual film - for buildings, not cars. It doesn't shrink when heated, so it can't be formed to curves. There are unscrupulous Huper dealers that lie and install Huper on the side windows, but then put dyed tint on the rear window. If your installed is ethical and actually installs Huper on the rear window, it will have darts and not be in a single piece.


The pic below is of my cool vanilla, tinted with 35% Pinnacle for the front and 50% for the rear.

Good job speaking my words, too, Hemee!

crhemi, check out the ceramic window tint from FormulaOne Pinnacle Series if you want great quality w/o some of the interference presented by metallic tints. I have not had any issues with my AM/FM/Satellite Radio/Navigational.

Thanks for posting information on Formulaone.
I was able to locate a company not to far from me. Now to call them and get it setup. I have heard the ceramic is the only way to go. I have talked with folks that have had there trucks and SUV's done and they did not know about ceramic tint.
My buddy had his 300c done and it was a local company, that I know does not remove the windows like I want done and also does not use ceramic.
I am also checking with a local company here in San Jose, that in fact removes all the windows and does the tinting. Most of the other companies I have found just lay it out and cut it. I like the idea of removing the windows.

Do the folks that have tinted there windows know if there companies removed there windows? I am just trying to find out how all the other installs were done.
