Are high end Tints worth the price tag?

Hello All,

Long story short, I brought home a brand new 19 SE last weekend, and am looking into getting a tint job. I previously owned an Mk7 Gti, which I did tint as well, thru a local shop around town. I never did know what brand/quality of tint they used, but I never had an issue with it, and it cost me around $375 installed all the way around. This time around I am looking into getting tint done by a premium shop in the suburbs around Chicago, and they offer a classic tint, FormulaOne Pinnacle, and FormulaOne Stratos, each with their prices set accordingly. I am not opposed to spending money for quality, but I want to know from those out there if these are worth it? My Gti is a big investment and want what is best to preserve and protect it for many years to come.

I think they're worth it but I would check another place that uses the same tint to see if it's priced right.

I’ve heard the same. Some swear their glass shattered because of the tint, but i think that involved older sunroof designs. I did discuss this with the shop and they claim to not have had any issues.
