    hello,

    I'm looking to get my refreshed S tinted in the Century City area. I'm looking for places and advice what to do.

    Thanks

    If you want to drive over the hill, Sunshield Glass Tinting in Sherman Oaks does a great job.

    What type of tinting did you get? And what color is your car? Did you see any purple in your back window tint

    I didn't use them for my current car as the Model X already has tinted windows. I used them for a previous Lexus and they did a great job and there were no bubbles or strange purple colors in the tint.

    Would recommend Extreme Autowerks in Cerritos. Ask for Derek or Bing. They do a great job with Photosync, and have other options easily comparable side by side.

    They can also do windshields - correctly - which, given what's under the dash of a Model S, is important.

    Most of their Model S have gotten Photosync 35 all around and 75 for the windshield. Don't forget the front pano panel.

    If you're concerned about local regulations, then get the 45 all around and don't do the windshield. But if you do have the windshield done in virtually invisible 75, you'll enjoy markedly less glare and less heat. And the 35 is fine night and day.

    Lastly, ask them if they can apply Optimum's windshield coating - the windshields are susceptible to micropitting - and the last thing you want to do is replace windshield tint after having to get a new windshield - it ain't cheap.

    Good luck.
