    Some of our member weren’t able to attend today’s meeting comparing the 2 different shades of Formula One Pinnacle window tint and requested pictures of the event.
    We had over 20 members attend and, of course, it’s much easier to judge the differences in person.

    But this link is to a Pica album showing the differences as much as a picture can.
    Picasa Web Albums - Tesla Maven - Tint Comparison

    The differences were slight but noticeable if you knew what to look for.
    The lighter shade (50) is more “cop friendly” but doesn’t cut out quite as much heat (49% vs 54%) or glare (40% vs 57%) as the 35.
    Both cut out 99.5% of UV rays.

    The Air Blue 80 on both front windshields cuts out 43% of the heat, 13% of the glare and 99% of UV rays.

    This is the first car I’ve ever tinted and I don’t think there was anyone who attended who didn’t like the tint jobs.

    Did I mention before that it took about 3 1/2 – 4 hours to tint the car?
    The tint was applied by Mr. Tint in Escondido CA.

    P.S. If you decide to tint your windows, be aware of the tint laws. I am not responsible!
    But also be aware of the speed limit laws and the front license plate laws.

    Hi - Just joined your discussion for the sole purpose of this tint info. Just received our Model S and would like to know who you are recommending for tint - and price if you have pre-negotiated. With many thanks! Mari
