Tint on Crimson Red

Fellow members...

Looking for some pics of your crimson/melbourne red cars with tint. I am planning to get my car tinted before it becomes blistering here in AZ and would appreciate any suggestion on the tint color / darkness % for the desert dweller .

TIA.

Definitely go with ceramic tint. It won't interfere with nav/bluetooth/radar and does a great job of keeping the interior cool.

When I lived in Chandler, I had mine done at The Specialist in Tucson. FormulaOne Pinnacle at 35% all around. Not as much of a mirrored finish as Huper Optik tint. I would suggest getting the windshield done too, as it's the biggest piece of glass on the car.

Coolness....thanks for the recommendation! I'll have to look at 35% as I was thinking of going 30% but don't want it too dark given that we have auto dimming mirrors and it can be a pain at night.

ceramic is the only way to go now that we have it on our Z - all other tint is terrible. the ceramic lets almost ZERO heat in on you and it really adds to comfort while driving
