I had my Prius tinted with LLumar, and yes; it's the metallic tint. Dark on the back window, and lite on all sides; with a slight silver metallic tint.

The guy did all of the small windows, the side windows, and the upper-back window for $200 US. Very professional job, and NO BUBBLES!

No problems with my NAV. The NAV satellite receiver is inside of the dashboard behind the center speaker/MFD anyhow, as I recall.

geep,

I will be getting my car FormulaOne ceramic tinted tomorrow along with Llumar Paint protection on the front with Stoneguard for the headlamps and fog lamps.

I'll be doing all the back windows and a strip on the front windshield at the level of the black dots behing the rear view mirror. CA lets you do a 4 inch strip but I don't think with the windshield as big as it is that the near 6 inches will be a problem.

I'll have some pictures here by Sunday evening.

I have 5,600 miles on the Prius now and wish I had done the Paint Protection sooner. I've found some very minor chips on the front hood that I fixed with the paint pen that I got from my Toyota dealer. It works extremely well.

Default Window Tint Picture #1

Well, the dealer's price quote to me was for $373.00 I was expecting to just have all the back windows done and a windshield strip. The original quote was actually for all windows including driver and passenger windows. NICE!

FormulaOne Pinnacle (ceramic)

Default Invisible Paint Protection

At the same time the window tinting was done I had them do Llumar Paint Protection film using this pattern,



Here's the best picture I took attempting to show a film line. Note it below the windshield washer jets.

Here's a close up photo of the Llumar paint protection showing the edges.

I still think it looks great. Beats the vinyl black bra look I have on the Mazda.
