      purchased this thinking I was getting the right percent. I finally applied the tint to the windows and it was at least 30% someone must have switched the tint! and just three days after it has wrinkles. im very disappointed that I cannot get a refund now.

          This stuff is garbage. When aplying to my van windows, the adhesive did not stick, kept bubbling from the edges, and peeled from the corners

            This is a great product. It can be very frustrating to use if you do not know how to apply it. There are several videos online about window tinting that helped me out alot! A profesional tint job costs over $100 for an average vehicle so in my opinion this stuff is an awesome value. When purchasing, make sure there are no creases or wrinkles in the roll. These will show up on your window and cause a less than satisfactory result. People say this stuff fades, I have used it on several vehicles and after about 6 years it still looks good!

              This tint works great. I have used it on 4 cars now.It shrinks real well for back window use.Easy to cut all and all a good product.Bought it with a 35% off code.
              I am not sure about the life of it Advance gives a 1 year warranty but the box says life. Only time will tell how it will hold up.

                    A:

                    Hi Chris, I'm glad to assist you! The first layer of film is deep-dyed in a range of shades, to allow light transmission of 5% (Dark) or 20% (Medium). The lower the number, the darker the shade.
