Chameleon Window Film on BMW and the Fitting Process

Chameleon is a multilayered, iridescent film, from the USA that we are trialling (or at least will be when we open again after the Covid-19 lockdown). You have probably seen iridescence in pearlescent paint jobs on cars before. You will also have seen it in soap bubbles. To achieve iridescence in a window film takes advanced US equipment and 200 layers of material (compare that to regular window film which usually has 3 or 4 layers). We fitted Cameleon to the windscreen of this G11 7 Series shortly before we had to close for the pandemic, and thought we’d show some of the process as well as the result.

For comparison, here is the original windscreen.
Offering the film to the glass. (Note the Chameleon branding – it is a very advanced film and there are some cheap, Chinese imitations that aren’t the same at all.)
Dry shrunk.
Wet shrunk and trimmed.
And fitted on the inside.

Range Rover Sport

Before and after of a new Range Rover Sport with window tinting of 20%. A huge improvement, especially with the black pillars and roof. The film may appear lighter in the photo due to the glass roof.

Mercedes A35 AMG

Lovely, new A35 A Class, I’ve forgotten what we put on it though! It’s either 5% or 20%. Probably 20%. It’s not easy to judge the level of tint from photos due to varying light conditions. This is why it’s better to choose in person. When you drop your car off you can look at our display, and usually there’s a few tinted cars you can look at to get a good idea of what our films look like before you decide what’s best for you.
