    I have a correction regarding the warranty. The Nanotech clearsky 9060 has 10 years warranty. The others have 5 years warranty. I'm thinking of having the reflective series installed since it has a higher TSER percentage than the charcoal series. Nanotech clear on the windshield then Nanotech reflective for the rest sounds good to me for the price to performance balance.

    After a week of testing the nanotech clear tint on my vitara, I can say that I am very pleased with it. It reduced the need for my AC to constantly turn on to keep the car cool. Before I would have to turn the AC to level 3 just to keep the car cool but now after installing nano tech level 1 is good enough for the average daytime sun.

    Comparing the heat that gets through the nanotech windshield tint and the old 3m tint on my windows, I can say the heat that penetrates is way less on the nanotech side. Definitely having the old 3m on my windows replaced by nanotech soon so I can enjoy complete coverage.

    Tint series that belong to same tier will provide comparable (but not exact) heat rejection performance.

    Tint series that belong to higher tier generally costs more.

    Tier 1:
    V-Kool VK and X series
    Huper Optik (All)
    SolarGard LX series
    3M CR series

    Tier 2:
    V-Kool K series
    Nano-Tech (All)
    SolarGard HP and Sterling series
    3M BC and CS series

    Tier 3:
    V-Kool OEM series
    SolarGard Non-HP series
    3M FX series

    Consider also the warranty length. 5-7 years warranty are pretty common now.

    Just had my 2006 Civic tinted with Nano-Tech VIP at LA Cars over the weekend.

    Medium Black for the windshield and Super Black all around. Took around 3 hours to do it, since they had to remove the old tint.

    Honestly, I'm quite satisfied with the visibility at night. Used to drive the company Revo equipped with 3M Superblacks all over, and driving it at night was difficult. Pero mukhang mas ok ang heat rejection ng 3M (don't know the exact variant though). Kahit babad sa araw kasi yun, hindi ganun kainit pag pasok mo sa Revo. Not unllike the Nano-Tech, 3 hours pa lang nakababad sa araw last Wednesday (March 20), mainit agad sa loob.

    Hello Red_One,

    Will the cost you posted covered ALL windows?

    What about visibility, especially at night. Is it still clear?

    I've decided to take my Ford Escape to LA Cars and tinted with Nano-Tech Shaded, medium dark film. My ride had 3M Super Black, not sure what series it is, and I have to replace it because of my night driving concerns.

    Only the front windshield remains untouched, because of the LTO sticker. The techs there couldn't remove the sticker in one piece. So I have to wait early next year for the car's renewal. Maybe they'll offer this again next year.
