Yep go to a ford dealer and ask them who they prefer to use as apparently they are having problems with the back window and the built in aerial. They had to redo mine.

Basically you will be told do not get a Metallic based tint. As the metallic based tint can reduce (to nil) the AM reception, though my local dealer of tint-a-car said nothing about FM.

Metallic based tints are better at UV protection (99.99%)
Non metallic tints are about 60% effective at blocking out UV protection.

Also metallic based tints reflect more general heat and look better than the non metallic tints.

I'm getting mine done through the dealer, also get a 10 year guarantee with it.

Is $295 a good price?

Just don't clean the inside with Windex or any other stuff like that, not good.
