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.
