Our tint is UV protected against 99% of harmful UV rays and deflects 98% of infrared heat.

I have Prime XR Plus in 35 all around now since Dec 2019. I’m very happy with the quality and apperance, but in hind sight I should have asked for two pieces for the roof/trunk like 25 on the roof and 35 on the trunk instead of a single sheet of 35. South Florida’s brutal sun even with the AC on max i can feel the heat bearing down on me from above and the glass roof is hot to the touch. Parked temps can reach over 100 inside.

I have Xpel Prime XR Plus 55% on all windows except my windshield. I am a huge fan - even at the lighter tint, I can still feel the difference in how much cooler the car is. I highly recommend Xpel tint and PPF.

Huh? I don't understand. The rear window that goes over the back seats is a single piece. Then, the other window over the driver/passenger is another piece, if you choose to do it. I'm going to wait and see about the front overhead glass. Been raining basically 3 straight days now, can't tell how bad any sun is so far on my head. If I have to go back and do another piece on the driver/pass roof glass, so be it. That would be quick to do. Otherwise, did 15% all around and 50% front Xpel XR Plus...on white car...looks sweet.

I've attached a photo (not my car) to clarify, the rear glass goes over the rear passenger seats then there is a divider and another piece of glass that covers the front seats. I did the rear with a single sheet of 35% and in hind sight I should have only done the rear with 2 pieces so the roof section could be darker than the rear view.

Today it was 99F according to the cars temp measure, with AC set to auto and 74f I could still fell the warmth on my head and neck. It's not a fault of the tint, I think the Xpel is great and doing its job, my comment is more of a warning to others the live in a hot sunny environment. Go darker if you can especially on the roof. I'm considering having the tint removed off the rear and front roof and replaced with 20%. I'd go with XPEL Prime XR Plus again.
