I hit up 85C at Diamond Jamboree weekly (I live in Irvine). Great pictures man, I always like your threads. The tint looks top notch, seems like they're running a great shop over there. Are they in K-Town?

Yeah, hence the name Photochromatic, but i believe it only changes by about 5%

Lol thanks for the compliment. The thought of the Vegas heat frying my left arm on the drive up was what made me get the tint.

I spoke to Hahn yesterday. He told me the stuff is made in Korea and that they call it photochromatic-90-60. The company's name is n-tech. I looked to find if they had a website. I wanted to see if they had a list of installers/distributors in our area but couldn't find anything. So, still looking. If you find something, please post it.


Cheers.

Hey Sard anyway I could check out your tints in person? I'm thinking of going this route but just wanted to make sure it's what I really want. I already made a mistake the first time around. Thanks.

I have a bit of an odd question. Why do they apply the tint to the outside of the window?

I mean, where I am located in Canada, we get frost and cold weather where the tint would be worn off by weather, or there is a need to use a window scraper. Is this a technique only used in warmer climates, because that looks a little odd to me!

HOWEVER, the tint looks amazing and you have a great looking car. I bet you are happy to have the protection from heat and sun exposure!

It's not applied on the outside, they placed the film on the outside just to cut it to a perfect size so they dont have to cut in the car, thus save time!
