Nice but after looking at that, Im thinking I'm gonna go with a darker tint on the back. and something like that on the sides. I think thats like what I have on my car (not a tc) right now. But the tC would look better with a dark back window because of the all glass top. Just my opinion. It looks good though.

It's 35% reflective tint all-around. The tinter said the reflective tint is better against the heat than the smoke and would look best on my light-colored tC. I was still gonna get smoke until I followed the guy that was giving me a ride back to work and his reflective tint (on a darker blue truck) looked sweet. It was a cloudy day and I could see his outline from the back and then the sun would hit the window and I couldn't see him at all. On my way back riding with him, looking out his windows, it was almost as if he didn't have tint at all. I had smoke put on my last vehicle and looking out from the driver side window, you could certainly tell it was tinted and the inside wall of my white garage was a slightly different shade. With my reflective tint, there is no color difference.

To your point of darker on the back: When I picked up the car, I thought the back would look better darker, too. I just didn't want to have trouble backing and it being too dark to see at night is why I didn't go darker. My boss had hers done darker on back and said that was the case. There is no way I would go any lighter, though.

How much did it cost you?
It was $174 plus tax. I didn't shop for the cheapest place or compare prices. I asked for recommendations from picky people and looked at their vehicles. I checked how long the place had been in operation (16 years). I, also called the Scion salesperson to see if the tint shop was among those that he recommended, and it was.


It's funny, I feel like I got a new car all over, again. lol
