What is recommended material and cost for best windows and windshield tinting. I live in SUNNY Florida and need relief!
I live in SUNNY Arizona and found in 2001 my Mercedes dealer installed Hyperoptik (pronounced Hooperoptik). I’ve had it on every car since, including my S. It is excellent with a extremely high heat rejection and excellent light transmission. Outstanding German engineering.
Nolek Sum- where in AZ are you? I’m in, oh, it’s right there already in my name.
Was that on the windshield as well?
Thanks Nolek Sum. Found a dealer here in Orlando that installs Hyperopic automotive window tint.
I’m in Cave Creek.
Here is what I got, 5 years ago. May be different now.
Windows:hyperoptik drei, $499
Windshield air 80 Bleu, $150.
Came to my home and installed.
Will be getting next need on my new 100D
Note that any film on the windshield is illegal in California, except for the top 4". I suspect the concern is the added visual distortion films typically create, especially over time. All other windows are ok in CA.
I had them tint the windshield. If you look through polarized sunglasses, you'll see rainbows which is very annoying on the windshield. I had them remove it the next day.
By clarification, front windows can have film, as long as their is no tint to them. Rear window can be tinted as long as their is a right side mirror...

Just ordered for my new S. Price for each up $100 (from almost 5 years ago) to $599/$299. He comes to my home to install. What pay you in Orlando?
Just drove my new car home from California where I bought it, 800 miles, and the difference with no tint is unbelievable. The heat coming through the windshield was devastating, something I have never felt here in Arizona with my tinted old S. Money well spent!
Price here in FL is about the same as you paid.
Ultimate Auto in Orlando appears to be best around and has done 100’s of Tesla’s with outstanding reviews.
I live in Phoenix,
Can you give me the phone number to the guy you used?
Also, did you install the ceramic tint?
Mobile Window Tinting by JR
Mine will be installed hopefully next Tuesday - I had to reschedule as My S had am unexpected call at the SC.
Don't know about ceramic.
Just spoke with JR and rescheduled. Asked about ceramic. He said the Hyperoptik is a grade above ceramic.
He told me he has been doing this for 29 years.
