I'm looking at the 3M Crystalline 40. Looks to have the best benefit of all the 3M tints. I had this misconception that the darker the tint, the more protection from the sun and heat you get. I guess I was wrong. Any other suggestions??

Gorgeous! This is what I'm thinking of doing. When you say "all around", does that include the front windshield??

Everything except the front winshield. I personally prefer a little darker but crystalline doesn't go any darker than 40.. Definitely has the best heat rejection I've ever experienced with any tint!

Here's mine with V-KOOL Clear 70 for the front windshield. V-KOOL VIP 60 for all sides and rear window. As you can see the films have this silver reflection. It's pretty cool. And only V-KOOL have it.

30% Ceramic tint (it's a little cloudy out so it looks a tad dark). Enjoy it very much

I have color stable 35 all around except for front windshield.
Front has crystalline 70 and it is indeed the best so far i have experienced.
You should do front also. A huuuge difference when the front gets crystalline

Is there a way around the light edge on the dot matrix? I don't want limo tint, just a tad darker and the advantages of less heating of the car, but I hate light edges around the dot matrix.
