Looking for SoCal window tint recommendations

I imagine that when you sit in traffic on a day with the sun frying your car, you will feel the difference between s7 and s9 much more.

The sun in NorCal is really intense so I put crystalline on the front windshield even though it’s a lease and did standard 3m ir on the rest. If I owned the car, I would have done full crystalline because the difference is significant.

Btw just for your own peace of mind do a search for reviews from people who went with Rayno and also the installers. My installer was rather upset with them.

I’m at Sunshield in Sherman Oaks once again getting Xpel XR on my truck. Can’t recommend this place enough.

I talked to the guy at Spectrum. He seemed nice, but was recovering from back issues and I needed this tint done this week due to hectic next week. Pricing was similar. I would have tried him if I had more time, but then again every time I visit Sunshield Hamid treats me well. He’s been in the business since 1986…

Can you share your pricing and what car you tinted? Including which windows?

I got all side windows, rear window, sunroof done for $450. This was on a Sierra crew cab and Xpel XR.

Lancaster guy was also very close to this price BTW and he was pleasant to deal with when I was asking pricing questions.

Got a Tesla Model Y done by Cyber Tint in Anaheim. New shop, their work area is really clean.


I paid about $1000 (say about cause I got a few other things done) for xpel prime xr plus on a tesla model y. all windows including sunroof and windshield. I’ve seen similar pricing but it was for say pinnacle formula one, or ir. I just wanted to try xpel.
