    My car's 3 year old 3M Tint needs replacement, car wash guy noticed dots in all my tints which is noticeable from inside depending on the sun's angle.

    Planning to have it done Q1 next year when (hopefully) Covid cases goes down.

    Do I use 3M again? All my cars past and present used it. Or do I try to go Ceramic? (and if I go Ceramic, any specific brand to recommend?)

    Even if I go ceramic, I intend to use the cheapest version available (I noticed each brand has a low-med-high price, but low and medium price has the same warranty)

    *not sure what caused the "dots" on my tint, all I can think of is all those alcohol and Lysol sprays inside the car.

    Planning to have the lightest available tint (just enough to make the passengers anonymous)

    When choosing ceramic tint, you should check if the tint is hazy ba during day time and night time. May mga sikat na brands kasi na very hazy yung tint. I had my car installed with Llumar CTX ceramic tint. No hazy at all and good overall heat rejection. Its not the cheapest nga lang.

    If you can get the model number, better. Since you can search it online. If branded naman, dami usually reviews from US users.


    *quick search on google says its not ceramic
