    If you live in Florida, I'm sure there has been a time you got into your car after a long hot day and actually felt like you stepped into a sauna. Ever burned your hand trying to put on your seat belt before?

    Well fortunately it doesn't have to be this way! The best way to keep the heat out and keep your car cool is to install a quality window film that is designed for that reason.

    We offer two different films that serve this purpose. These films are Suntek Carbon CXP Ceramic, and 3m Crystalline.

    Suntek Carbon CXP Ceramic Window Film blocks 44-56% Solar Energy & has 99% UV Rejection.

    Not enough heat blockage for you? Step it up a notch to the best heat blocking film on the market, 3M Crystalline.

    3M Crystalline not only blocks 50-56% of Solar Energy and has a 99% UV Rejection Rate, but it also blocks 97% of Infrared Heat (which is the heat you actually feel from the sun). The combination makes this film the best money can buy to keep your car cool.


    Here are some examples of the different shade options for each type of film:

    As you can see, especially in the lighter Crystalline Films, the tint has a slight bluish hue to it. The CXP Ceramic Series is more of a black or dark grey shade.

    I am looking at the Suntek CIR 35% for my Tesla (yet to arrive). Thanks for the pictures.

    How does this product differ (good or bad) in comparison to Huper Optik Ceramic Window Tints? I've heard varying opinion and wondered what your thoughts were.

    I just got my Model S back after an AC issue after delivery - so, I am planning the tint to be done this Friday. It came down to price for me - the Huper Optic was reasonable but the installer wanted more $ for the Ceramic or Photosync - easily 2x the price. I think the Huper Optic non ceramic was reasonable. I am picking the Suntek CIR - ceramic since this installer has done 10 Teslas in the last year...and the Tesla Geeks guys here in TX recommended them. I am going for 35% since the wife acceptance factor is key here - she did not want dark windows from the inside looking out.

    Hello.
    We mainly install the Suntek and 3M window films. The Suntek CIR is a great film especially for the price point. Huper Optic has been a few years since we have installed the film. To be honest any of the higher end films are great, I would look for the best installer that is going to be around for the long term and can be there for you in case of any issues.

    Happy 4th.
