Do you have some pictures to see what it looks like. Did they meter it and if so what was the percentage with the tint?

Your car looks great!

My calculations show it should end up at 35.2 % VLT
.80 x .44=.352

Looks good OP, just put on formulaone ceramic 35% on mine. The rear door and hatch glass on our cars are small so it came out darker than expected.

I can post a pic later this evening. They did meter, and it was 34.5. I was skeptical about the 40% , because I wanted the legal 35% for NC. The tinter was correct with his estimate! Looks great too.

This is my '17 Sonic Silver GT Hatchback with ForumlaOne Pinnacle. I went with 40% on the sides and 30% on the rear hatch glass. Doesn't take much tint to darken these small windows.

No problem AVL thumper.

What did everyone pay for your Pinnacle tint Job?

I am getting mine done at the end of April.

Thanks for all your replies.

I'm in Southern California, so pricing may vary. FomulaOne Pinnacle ran me $325. Basic 3M and Lumar CTX were going for $300.

Your Hatch looks great! 40% Pinnacle Seems just the right shade for the hatch.

Here it is about $380-$400 for the Pinnacle from some of the places I checked.
