    Llumar window tint and reception problems?

    Has anyone used Llumars metalized film and had problems with reception, bluetooth, XM etc? I had it before and had no issues on another vehicle but the shop crew said I might have issues in the 2011 V.
    Anyone weigh in?

    I have Llumar 15% black tint and have never had any issues. I wouldn't get any tint film with metal in it.

    I would DEFINITELY stay away. I was told that since all the antenna's are in the back window, the metallic tint can blow one of the sensors that's built into the rear glass and the only way to fix it is to get a new back window.

    I have Llumar 30% ceramic tint on all windows but front. I had it installed 3/1/2010 and have no issues with onstar, Radio, bluetooth, k40, Ipass or anything electronic.
    I inquired about interferance before it was bought and was told it would not interfer.

    Get ceramic. Don't bother with the metallic stuff. It looks really ricer-ish on anything but a Lexus that came with it from the factory, anyway. IMHO.

    Ditto the above. I have 3 different % Llumar ceramic tint on windows and sun roof, and no interference.

    Well heres your best answer, coming from an owner of a V2 as well as a tint shop. I bought the car with 30% LLumar metalized already installed and YES i have interference with the radio. I am removing the film and installing non-metalized Suntek Carbon which is what i mostly carry. Ceramic is also a great way to go but is more expensive.

    Johnson didn't have ceramic when I had my z06 done.... I have pinicale on my v and love it. You can tell and see the difference betweeen the two, esp when looking through it. (Don't get me wrong I love Johnson, but ceramic is much better)

    I put it on my V and I'm sold. I'll be using it on all other cars.
