1) where do you recommend I get them done?

3) is there a type (I.e. brand, material...etc) of film you would recommend?

Thanks in advance!
I'm in Oakland county, and Sunshades in Troy is usually everyone's go-to, unless you're on a budget. I've had multiple cars done there over the years, and they're always perfect.

I have 30% all around and 50% on windshield. Light enough to see the silhouette but not details. I'll probably get pulled over for it but I see enough tinted cars around here yet cops don't seem to care much; but do keep in mind tinted fronts will give cops a reason to pull you over and search in Michigan.

There's another place in Keego Harbor/Sylvan Lake, but I cannot personally vouch for that one, but I almost went there because they had good reviews and they're little bit cheaper than Sunshade (which cost a little over $500 for all/windshield for my f30).
