    My llumar tint guy told me that the CTX didn't come in 60 inch rolls so he can't do the rear in one piece in CTX but can do it in one piece in the cheaper ATX. I've went to him for years on all my cars and he is an honest and very good tinter too!

    How is the 30% in the top of rear windshield? Does it make it really dark compared to factory tint above driver? I’m trying to decide between 35% in rear and 50%. Thanks!

    Personally, no issues with it being too dark. Noticeable, but would not say high contrast between stock tint above driver and top of rear glass.

    Depending on what you're going for, I would say 50% on rear glass is too light.

    As you can see, the 50 is pretty subtle in appearance, but the high quality film does a lot in heat protection, which is really nice here in the south.
