30 in the front and 15 in the back...that's the darkest legal limit in FL


Whew - ClydeFrog, your 2016 Scion iA in the Stealth color is looking sharp in that dark tint. I would say it's more like 40 and 40! There is a stick shift in the Stealth color available in Denver right now selling for $15,711. Wow - a great amount of car for the money with one of these. I may snag one in Toyota form when my '11 Kia Soul has racked up some more miles yet. It's only got about 61,189 miles on it now. Not even close to being worn out yet - the motor in my Soul just purrs like a little kitten. 164 horsepower 4-cyl.engine. These iA's have smaller motors but they're a tad lighter than a Soul, I suppose. I get about 25mpg in the city and 31mpg on the highway with my Soul.

I am following closely the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage hatchback and the G4 sedan that are just about to come out in late March from Mitsubishi and also the 2016 Chevy Spark, but, I don't think we'd be as happy with their smaller size. Great mileage outta both of those cars but the larger size and similar ghastly mileage outta the Scion iA would be much more appealing, eh?

I find that the extra tint, especially on the black exterior paint, makes the vehicle look more high-end. Also must be nice to have that extra tint living in the Florida sun.

Can't disagree with dis. I mean this. :| And I want to add this, about that. These Scion iA's look really cool in the Stealth color. And variety.

How much did they charge?
$290 out the door for the FormulaOne Pinnacle Series which includes a Lifetime Warranty transferrable, should I ever sell the car.

The name says it all... The Pinnacle® Window Film Series is the most state-of-the-art automotive tint available today. You get the same great look all FormulaOne films promise, plus the ultimate in protective performance.

Proprietary non-metallized, nonconductive nano-ceramic technology maximizes heat and ultraviolet rejection, keeping you and your vehicle cool and helping to protect from the damaging effects of the sun. And unlike metallic products, Pinnacle films won’t interfere with your GPS, keyless entry, radar detector, mobile phone, and other radio frequency technology you rely on in your vehicle.

I agree. I really liked my car when I first got it anyway, but after the tint I absolutely love it. For aesthetics and definitely for the heat reduction.

Did they end up telling you what the lifespan of the tint will be? Because I know some tints will fade after a while, much like how paint does depending on how often it's exposed to the sun. A good way to track this is with the edges of the window since its almost always tucked into the window frame.

They did not and I never thought to ask.

The lifetime warranty covers "cracking, crazing, demetallizing, delaminating, or color change" so it sounds like I'll be covered if/when fading occurs (thankfully)!
