    FormulaOne Pinnacle 15 Tint

    Hey everyone. Just got back from Formula One in Bear, DE. I tinted all of the windows except the windshield and sunroof with FormulaOne Pinnacle 15 ceramic-based tint. I think it looks great, but $450 for the whole kit-n-kaboodle was a bit steep. Here are some pics.

    I'm jealous. Here in the Albuquerque the law only allows for 35% in the front and 20% in the rear. Some folks will drive to Arizona to get the darker tint, but I don't want to do anything illegal.

    No need to be jealous. ngiardina's front side windows are NOT legal in his residence state of NJ. If fact, NJ does not allow any tint on the front side windows.


    ngiardina, looks very nice!

    You are correct sir. It added $100 to my cost to get the front sides done, and it just looks so much better. I think the fact that it is only 15% will help me squeak by. Even if I have to take itoff at the behest of the law, what is $100 between friends?

    Nick, maybe it's the angle, but are your back windows darker then your front? i have a feeling it's the angle but i figured i'd ask anyways

    Re: FormulaOne Pinnacle 15 Tint

    it is the angle combined with the fact that the windshield lets light in from inside of the front windows.

    have any side shots? the angled shots misrepresent things.
    good luck with the 15%. My buddy gets hassled for 35. jersey cops
    good luck.

    btw, 450 is REALLY steep. most shops will do it for 200-250 with a lifetime warranty & they'll re-do it over & over & over till it comes out perfect.

    its something you can do yourself to; $30 bucks & 2 hours and you're done. if you mess up, you can redo it (a dozen times) and spend less than you would if you were to pay a shop to do it.

    congrats on getting it done good luck

    Looks killer! I like to think you get what you paid for and am willing to pay someone to do it that does it for a proffesion rather than do it myself and its not 110%

    IN Vancouver we can't tint the front side windows either but when I get my car I think I will tint the rear and rear side windows like yours Nick and maybe go one shade lighter on the front side windows.

    I, too, was thinking og doing 35% on the fronts. Last minute decision to go 15. It doesn't look that dark to me.

    Cadillac Kid - Honestly, you can't do this for 30 bucks in your garage. Formula One Pinnacle Tint is no tsold to anyone except authorized installers. Hence the high price.

    Just drive down the road a ways, you can tell which ones were not done professionally.
