Default Recommend window tint

Which auto glass tint manufacturers/products should I consider for my
Accord? I read about Madico Charcool being a good reputable product.
Also any recommended dealers in the greater Los Angeles area?

Default Re: Recommend window tint

I have Llumar on multiple vehicles and love it. Especially the lifetime
warranty... and they honor it! ...4 years later with receipt. I screwed it
up with some overspray of some industrial cleaner and it got pock marks on
it. Replaced no problem. I love that! I love it so much, I got some
mirror tint that I had installed on my house for security reasons. Looks
GREAT and the same warranty applies. The cats in the house love it too as
they sit about 3 feet from the birdfeeder, the birds have no clue. Anyway,
back to the car...

I live in Florida where the sun can bake anything and the tint is almost 6
yrs old and as dark as new. I am very picky and this stuff lasts! just
avoid the window cleaner products.

Some photos on my Accord:

The well-backed warranty is a valuable thing. Tint tends to scratch or tear
over the years, and one that is less likely to do that and will be fixed for
free if it does is worth a premium.

I use a damp/moist (not dripping) terry cloth towel then a dry one to dry.
Any soft "face cloth" towels will work, the softer the better.

I use plain old tap water. I usually clean them when it is warm outside, to
me I think it helps if the window is warm. No science to back that up
though, but it helps with the drying.
