Its not AW but it is some before and after photos.

Before (Front)

After (Front)





Before (Rear)

After (Rear)


In all shots there is sunlight beaming through the front windshield so it does make the front seem a bit brighter than actual. But IMO these are some pretty good comparison shots. not done purposely, I just enjoy those angles of the car

Hope this was helpful.

Type: 3M, I forget the type of 3M but its the highest quality they offer (not FX series), and its non-metallic. $225 for the whole car.

Thanks. I went with the 50% Llumar and I'm very happy with it, looks very classy. Here's some after photos.
