Need advice on window tint

This may seem like a silly obvious question, but can anyone recommend me a brand of window tint for my 03 coupe? I'd like a not-so-dark tint that's high quality (no bubbling) but also affordable. Thanks.

i had my car done there, you can have your car done for 150.00 any shade , lifetime warranty.thats for 5 windows. let me know and ill tell the guy. e-mail at [email protected]
and the tint is heat resistance.

also go with 30% percent tint it will look nice.

Thanks for the help. What I'd like to do is cut down the heat buildup in my car, but I also would like to still see well at night, even during the day. Am I being unrealistic?

i got the quantum tint 35% front and 25% back and it helps block out a lot of heat. looks good too hehe and so reflective on cloudy days you can't even see in but on clear day you can see in.

35% should be ok at night but around 15% and lower it gets harder for me to see out. you just need some getting used to then you'll be fine.

you need to check and see what you local laws are in your state, if not you probably be hassled by the cops. Depends on there attitude.

I have 13% and it's a little more difficult to see at night...but oh well. The guy that installed it called it "titanium" tint. I don't know who the manufacturer is but he claimed it would never bubble or turn purple. Still looks new after 4 years.
