Question ForumlaOne Pinnacle Tint

I'm going Saturday to get ForumlaOne Pinnacle tint on my car. I'm pretty much set on the Pinnacle 35 tint, since my car is black. Think I'll be happy with this or should I go darker? I had a 20% metal tint on my previous car, however it was white and I was very happy with color. But on a darker car, I think a slightly lighter tint may look better.

I just had 35% F1 Pinnacle installed on my AW 135. I couldn't be happier; I'd post pics, but they would be a poor repersentation of how it looks in person....Overall, I'd say that pinnacle looks a bit lighter then the same percentage metallic tint....

I just had Pinnacle 50% put on mine a few weeks ago. I'd actually disagree, I think Pinnacle looks darker than similar metallic tint. Though it all depends on the level of reflectivity in the metallic tint and your interior color. My buddy has 50% Formula One (basic film) on an E90 and it's barely noticeable even with black interior.

I think 35% looks best IMO, but I just wanted to stay legal and have Coral show through. Had 20% in the past, PITA with the police.

Hadn't thought about the interior color...That may be why it looks a bit lighter to me (I have the Taupe interior)

you should go 15%, it really is the perfect balance. you can still see in, but it is dark

That guy has: 20% Johnson Greystone Window Film

I've had 20% on my white car in the past and it was great. My cousin went 15% and I looked pitch black to me.

I'm leaning towards 35%...
