Huber Optik (ceramic) -- $450 installed<br>vs <br>Hanika Tek Omega Plus (metal) -- $250 installed.<p>Hanika installer 20+ years experience and claims no RF problems with the metal based film. <p>This is on a XC70, doing 35% on all the glass behind the driver.<p>Any opinions on one over the other?<p>Thanks<br>Oz<p>

Re: Getting Tint (Ozzie)

are there differences in the appearance between the 2 (despite equivalent tint %)? might help you decide if one has a more goldish vs. another, or something like that. BTW, where are you looking to get the Huper Optik done? As far as I can tell there are no dealers here in the Milwaukee region.

OZ<p>I See you are in EGV I was in Des Planes and got pulled over by des planes finest for tinted windows on my S70. Yes all 5 windows were tinted but the car is a Volvo. I have the rear tinted on my XC and it is a definate difference in heat.<p>Take care Just my 2 cents<br>

Re: Getting Tint (kenschel)

I called Huber Optik. They referred me to their only "certified" dealer in Chicago, Precision Glass in Orland Park (far, far SW suburb). <p>Telephone is 708-364-6161.<p><br>

Re: Getting Tint (Ozzie)

Just had our 2005 black XC70 tinted 2 weeks ago using Llumar (metal), 35% on all glass behind the driver. Looks great, functions great, kids love the results in the back seat!!! I did not notice any reception problem, but then again I NEVER listen to AM which I believe is where the most reception interference is.<p>Based on my experience so far, I would not hestitate to do it again with a metal film. My shop also has 20 years experience - I believe the quality and experience of the shop is as important as the product being used.
