I tint myself, and I love Johnson's Films. As far as performance goes, you won't see much difference between the Johnson and the 3M, and to be honest, Llumar isn't that bad either, I would go with the Johnson though for $20 extra.

Jeez. Prices seem kinda high to me, I got quoted $50 for the front 2 windows, and $130 to get my entire truck done (ext. Cab with the sliding rear window) dome with 3m film. Im just getting the front 2 done in 20% to match the other windows. Mite go darker with the back later depending how I like it

He's right, I wasn't trying to blow up a fellow tinters spot, but he's only probably paying $10 for the tint itself, and for those two windows, it should take him 20 minutes.
