    Hi everyone,

    I've been getting a lot of messages from members asking how a certain shade % looks on the 3, or how our films look on the 3 in general, so I think this thread will help people on the fence. This thread is going to be an on-going compilation of pictures of 3's we've tinted, so members can get a better idea of how certain shade % may look on their cars. I'll keep adding more pictures as we go, even if it's the same film on the same color 3, just because I know lightning, camera angle, and time of day can affect how the pictures come out. Here's some basic info I want to address that I think will get commonly asked.

    • Tints we use are either Photosync or Ceraluxe in these pictures, unless otherwise noted. Incredible high heat rejecting window films. I'll post a link to both films and their specs, in case anyone cares. Photosync & Ceraluxe
    • Check with your state tint laws before deciding on a shade for your 3. We're located in Houston, TX, so the shades we commonly use, may not be legal where you live.
    • The color of the films will differ from brand to brand, but the darkness should be very similar assuming the % are exact (35% vs 35%)
    • It gets pretty crazy during the day here, so we don't always get the best angles possible, hence why I'll keep adding more pictures so you get an overall idea how the shade % looks.
    • Even though this is a 3 thread, I do have pictures of X's and S's too (if you want to see them let me know).
    I'll add to the list if I see more common questions pop up.

    Satin Black Model 3 has Photosync 35% & 75% on it, the red one isn't finished yet. S's have Photosync 45 and 35.

    I'm adding one more picture from the 3 because I had some people ask how 35% looks on the back window and on the sunroof. If you do both windows in 35%, it pretty much looks the same. [​IMG]

    Hopefully since these pictures are taken in a few different settings (outdoors/indoors) people can generate an overall sense of how light/dark these shades are for what they're looking for. Will post more soon.

    Model 3 received Photosync 35%, and we also tinted the front windshield and sunroof. Client requested the back window not to be tinted, which is why in the second picture looks a little light. We can custom tailor our services--just pm me for more info. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Is IRD so new that not all photosync dealers know about it?

    I'm not sure how many of the dealers know about it.

    This is awesome! Any chance you have any with 20% on the sides and back? And some of the rear angle? Thanks!

    I know I have done a Ceraluxe 20% on the sides. I'll try to find pictures of it (hopefully I have it).

    I wish I had a recommendation for you, but I'm not familiar with any dealers in your area. Check out this dealer locater, you may find someone close by (if you're looking for Photosync/Ceraluxe): Dealer Locator | Prestige

    I believe I have a picture of all the sides being 20%, but I thought this might be a cool comparison picture in case you were interested in the mean time while I look for an all 20% sides.

    The front 2 are 33% (Ceraluxe comes in 33% instead of the usual 35% to get it as dark as possible without crossing over the legal limit) and the back windows are 20%. Surprisingly, the difference isn't as major as we'd expect considering the front is letting in a lot of light due to the front windshield and the big back window is also 20%.

    Curious on why you would do 20% on sides and 35% on the back window. Is it a visibility issue? From the outside, can you tell that the sides and back are different?

    At that point in time, the roll size for the back window wasn't available yet that's all.

    Nope, because they are on different planes of view so you don't notice a difference.

    Would you believe that this Model 3 is tinted and it blocks more heat than even most 5% pitch black limo tint? Photosync 75 on the entire Model 3 to maximize visibility without sacrificing heat rejection. Front windshield and sunroof are tinted as well. Gone are the days you "need" to go dark to heat rejection. Now it's all about personal preference. Really neat setup.
