Sometimes we’re amazed at the end result with window tint jobs. Check out the video below, and notice the reflections on the windows as the camera scans around the Volkswagen Jetta. The high-quality LLumar Enhanced Style ATC window tints, along with the expert Window Tintz installation, sure made this compact performance sedan shine.

We love the LLumar Enhanced Style ATC film product, which is aimed more toward improving the exterior appearance. Yet it still packs quite the protective wallop, blocking 99.9 percent of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. For the rear windows here we applied the 5-percent shade, the darkest most manufacturers offer. Then the owner went with a 15-percent shade for the front side windows. We think this mix, pretty typical in the Greater Los Angeles area, provides a good exterior look while offering plenty of protection for the insides.

And protection for the insides is huge not only for humans, who are prone to skin damage from the UV rays, as well as harm to their eyes, but for the car itself. Dark window tint shades help prevent the interior and upholstery from drying and cracking, or other types of damages. Investing in a window tinting is an investment into the long-term value of your car.

Below: Wow did the rear window come out well. It is deep and dark and very smooth compared with the body paint and its color. It’s a seamless match, and the LLumar film will protect everything on the other side. A lot of us in Los Angeles know how prone the rear area of our car’s interior is to the sun and damages. This owner won’t have to worry about that.

Plus the interior always will be cooler, something of great value in an area where the sun shines nearly all the time. The owner will appreciate long-term savings in terms of energy consumption because the air conditioning system can be left alone more often.
