Help me pick a tint please

I live in Buena Park, CA and have been looking at different options. I was quoted the following for my '09 E90 sedan:

bunch of brands like SolarGard/Sun Gard/Renegade for $100-150 at various places
$210 for Llumar carbon @ elitetint.com (additional $135 for air blue on the windshield)
$220 for Huper Optik carbon $325 Nanohybrid $495 Ceramic @ xlnttint.com
$340 for Formula One Pinnacle ceramic @ astroeclipse.com
$550 for 3M Crystalline @ Sound Avenue (includes windshield i think)

Was just wondering if the ceramic was worth it or if I should just go with a carbon tint or even something cheaper. If you guys know of any other places in the area that can hook me up or with better prices/quality please do let me know. I saw that a lot of people recommend the Formula One Pinnacle tint and am leaning towards that, it seems like a pretty decent price too for a full ceramic tint. Thanks!

I got my Llumar ATR put on for $140... definitely happy with the results. Can't argue with the price either.

LLumar on everything ive driven so far and never a problem, 15% all around and just had air 80 put on the front windshield over the weekend and I love it definitely worth it. Wearing polarized glasses with it is kind of strange tho, purple clouds lol

Its hard for me to choose any other option other than the one im familiar with which is the F1 ceramic @ 35% all around. That said, im very very picky and im still happy with my choice today.

the 550 is including the windshield, i think i forgot to put that lol. anyways i decided to go with the 30% all around pinnacle ceramic. seems like they didn't do that great of a job on the dot matrix but hopefully it will get better after a few days baking in the sun. they said to take it back if it didn't but hopefully it doesn't come down to that.
