Tint Shop doing 40% in Nassau

I called everyone I know, and no one does Lumar or suntek 40%, not spending $450 on Ceramic at art of tint.

seems that no one does 40% only 5, 10, 30, 35 or 50.

Please do not turn this into a debate on the % just asking if anyone know a tint shop close to me that does 40% tint

i don't think you will be able to tell too much of a difference between 35% and 40% honestly unless its between ceramic and non ceramic. i have 40% Huper Optik and i think its pretty light - but the ceramic tint makes up for it because its more reflective during the day which gives it a mirrored look like the mercedes oem tint. So if you got 40% non ceramic tint i think it will end up looking a little light. i'd stick with 35% or even 20% if you got regular black tint.

not paying $450 for tints on a leased car that goes back in 15 months.

50% is probably the way to go for me, I think with the factory glaze on the windows 50% will end up looking more like 45% and 35% would be more like 30%
