馃槏馃槏 Cannot wait to see some pictures && may ask what the benefit of the 3M film is for the side and roof glass? I've just never heard of it before 馃様

Never mind lol I do believe I googled it and it appears to just be a brand of window tint if I'm correct?
The Crystalline is a window tint film but also blocks up to 99% of the heat generating IR portion of the light spectrum. We had it installed on my wife鈥檚 CX-30 and my MX-5 and we can feel the difference when the sun shines in the side glass. There is even a clear ( no tint) version of the film. Here鈥檚 a link to the film description on the 3M website:

Hmmm, thank you--will have to keep this in mind. Prefer driving around with the pano roof shade open, but here in FL there's a big difference in interior heat even if that glass apparently has some factory UV control.
