3m color stable is excellent tint. 3M pretty much invented window tint. They have the best adhesives. Color Stable will NEVER fade as it has no dye. Also non reflective unlike many of the ceramic films.

That said, locating a good installer is equally as important as the window film. I highly recommend you find a film installer who computer cuts their tint. Eliminates potential window scratching, defroster cutting, leather cutting, etc...

Digitint has the best computer cut software solution. Ask around!

Can anyone post pictures of their ride with the tint and include what % it is? I used to have 30% on my old blue GTI but I now have a white 335 and want to see how dark I want to go.

Thanks in advance. I'm initilaly thinking to go 30 rear and maybe 35/40 front.

3M color stable is available in 5/20/35/50.

3M also has a simulator you can use to compare shades. http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3...ive_Simulator/
