At first, i wasnt going to tint the car at all. i think the car looks beautiful without tints.. being that all the cars ive owned were tinted, ive noticed that tints provide privacy to you, and the things in your car.. so im going to tint the car. i seen the way tonys is300 looks, i like it alot. however my friend suggested i go with titanium tints.. im asking for opinions here.. ive never seen an SBM IS with titanium tints, so its hard to decide.. anyhelp would be greatly appreciated

If you've seen Tony's IS3 then I think you have seen an IS3 w/ titanium tint. I'm pretty sure his has it. Don't quote me on that cuz I'm not sure, I'm just trying to recall from memory.

My tint is NOT titanium. I swear. I got regular 26% black/gray tint all the way around.

Titanium tint is more silver and reflective, right? Like the factory tint on the RX300?

I must have misunderstood this post by you (webmaster) then. Sorry.

I'm not really sure, the dealer sends it out. I had it done when I brought the car in for the 1k service. It's acutally 26% Titanium (or so it says) Tint and after all our discussion, the service advisor and the tint rep said that the Titanium wasn't an issue with the rear window antenna, they do them all the time. I haven't noticed any radio reception problems. I don't know the brand of the film.

Just FYI on good quality tints, I had my car tinted several years ago with 3M, 20% charcoal all around. So far, no fading, bubbling or peeling and above average visibility from inside the car. I'm very happy with it so far. Just search around and find a clean shop with a quality brand tint for the best price.
