    Auto Window tinting film come in four main choices, starting with the most common which is a dye film, because dye window film is not color stable its the less expensive of the group. Now for clients that want something that will last the life of the car there is a metal window film. Metal film will not fade or change color over time but because of its metal content the film can interfere with GPS signals. If you are one of the millions who use GP, use this Carbon Fiber film.

    This film gives you a color stable film without the GPS interference. This film will cost between $50 -$100 more than a metal file. Last on our list is the ceramic window film, this film will give the highest heat rejection of any film on the market making it the best of the best, and of course the most expensive. Before choosing a film make sure you know what you’re getting, never buy a film just because its cheapest, it will cost more in the long run. Removing a film because it has faded or begin to bubble can cost $150.00 more…
