Why Should I Tint My Car?

Protect Your Health

FormulaOne ceramic films provide an industry leading more than 99% UV rejection. The majority of skin cancer occurs on the left side of the face in America. Our products are endorsed by the Skin Cancer Foundation as an effective measure to help prevent skin cancer. Filtering UV light and heat also helps protect your vehicle’s interior from fading and weathering prematurely, protecting your investment and keeping it looking fresh longer.


Adding a quality window tint to you vehicle is a quick and easy way to personalize it. The choice is yours. Get aggressive with the shade darkness for a more sporty appearance or select a lighter tint for a classic look. We even have clear ceramic tints that deliver awesome heat rejection without being noticed. The technology is here with FormulaOne High Performance Auto Tint by Llumar.


Adding privacy tint to your vehicle provides an added layer of security by concealing cargo and valuables when you’re parked. The darker glass makes it more difficult to see into your vehicle. Nothing’s worse than coming back to your vehicle to find that your window has been broken and you’ve been robbed. Adding tint to your vehicle also increases your privacy while in traffic and driving around town which can be comforting in situations where you don’t necessarily feel like being on display. Our films deliver on so many levels.

Interior Comfort

Our FormulaOne ceramic auto tints, Stratos and Pinnacle, provide the highest heat rejection available while retaining a classic smoke appearance. Window film helps control harsh glare by filtering specific portions of the light spectrum during both day and night. Texas law now allows the front windshield to be filmed with high light transmission tint and we have incredible clear IR blocking ceramic tints that control the heat and the glare significantly and do pass inspection.

Nano Technology Ceramics
Our FormulaOne ceramic tints are Signal Enabling, In other words they are guaranteed to not interfere with the technology in your NAV, GPS, radio, satellite or keyless entry.
Computer Cut Patterns
We use Precision Cut software by Llumar to cut patterns for your vehicle from a database of more than 20,000 vehicles on a CNC plotter system. This eliminates the need to touch your glass with a razor knife, eliminating the possibility of damage to your vehicle.
Nationwide Warranty
FormulaOne auto tints come with a Nationwide Limited Lifetime Warranty that is transferrable to the next owner. The warranty covers material and labor. This is the best warranty in the business from the largest window film manufacturer in the world.

I have had four vehicles tinted here. The friendly experience and quality of install has been great every time with tint that looked great for years. We'll be back with our next one!

10/10 experience. I got ceramic tint with a F30%/R15% split for my Optima and it looks awesome! They were done in a couple of hours and the quality of work was top notch! I'm a very satisfied customer and you will be, too!

I recently visited Sunbusters and had several things done, along with window tinting, and the service was fantastic. First, they gave me an honest quote for the work I wanted done and did a great job on all of it. Once installed they patiently explained the technology, and answered all of my questions. When we realized one task hadn't been completed they were quick to address it. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

These guys did an amazing job on my old Volvo wagon! The choices were presented clearly and the price was agreeable for a ceramic tint job IMO. There was even a problem with one of the rear windows and they were able to work around it and get the job done. Now my car stays cool in the sun and the weak A/C is able to keep up. 10/10 recommend

August 9, 2022

People are friendly. I just made a call to see if I can walk in for my car tint. It was quick and they did a great job. If you guys want to get your window tint done I definitely recommend this place. Price are fare enough.

Have been coming here for 10+ years and had always held the owner in high regard, but today we took two cars and were met with disappointing customer service. Workmanship - 5 stars Customer service - 1 star Made appt for 9am. Got there on time, first car done beautifully. See some guys from the Covert dealership come drop two cars unannounced and think nothing of it because worker tells them they’re in the back of the line since they’re booked solid. Left second car at 10am and ran errands with little children near the area. Came back 3 hours later - second car hasn’t been taken back. Covert guy comes to pick up his vehicle that was not scheduled to be done. When we bring it up to the owner, he makes excuses about his guys needing to have lunch. At 10am? Then he mentions a discount - that they offered a week before for bringing in two cars at the same time. Don’t bold face lie to us, we both know what happened. Just take accountability for your actions. All we needed was, “I’m sorry, we messed up.” or “I’m sorry, we let big pocket customers cut the line as part of our business model.” That’s it. Not taking accountability for something so small makes me wonder what would happen if something big were to go wrong. I’m so sad to see this once fantastic business lose its luster through the years. We loved this place. We loved the owner. Guess it’s back to the drawing board to find the next new fantastic place. :(

It's nice in this day and age to find a business with a long history in the same location that still has the highest standards for their work. I was impressed with the entire team. The guys doing the actual tint work were clearly VERY experienced because they were so efficient with what they did. Just watching them prep the windows you could tell these guys know what they are doing. David at the front desk was very accommodating when I needed to move up my appointment for my sons football game. Very nice guy and extremely knowledgeable of the industry and their products. They also do other work like Car Audio and Radar Detectors. They even do a clear film for the front window that I'm considering on both my vehicles to cut the heat from that angle. I highly suggest their top of the line ceramic window film (Formula One Stratos). The difference of the hot sun on my arm was staggering when I got into the truck sitting outside. Plus, I don't have to turn my a/c to high just to feel the cold air in this hot Texas weather. Highly suggested and well worth the investment on my vehicle. They do have different options for different budgets, but even the best was a great value as far as I'm concerned. I'll be back with my vehicles in the future as well. Thanks to the entire team. Well Done!

They were fast and professional. Moved to Texas a couple weeks ago and they saved my hands being cooking on my steering wheel

I'm extremely pleased with the top quality tinting on my new car! The guys at Sunbusters helped me figure out which tint I wanted which was priced well. I also bought the clear film on the front windshield for UV protection, and I'm happy it didn't affect my car's head up display on the windshield. They had my car ready quicker than I expected. I love having a warranty on the film if anything goes wrong too. I highly recommend Sunbusters!

Professional, honest people. I don't think you could ask for more, but they keep going. Quick, efficient, friendly, and knowledgeable. A well deserved 5 stars as this company is a pro at fixing lazy people's work.

Our Tesla is the — oh I lost count — vehicle that we have had tint done by Sunbusters. This time not only did we have them tint every glass surface we had them put on the paint protection film. I can’t express how excited my wife is with the results for her Model Y. In the background you can see my F-150 that they did the tint on as well. Perfectly applied legal limit tint. Both vehicles have ceramic tint on all windows, windshield and roof and it makes a world of difference in the Texas sun. I’d highly recommend Rene, Clinton and the entire crew at Sunbusters. You won’t be disappointed.

Unbelievable professionalism and quality of work. They did a re-tint of the windshield on my new car due to poor work and damage done at another shop. I emailed them last week and Dave replied within a few hours to set up the appointment and gave me all details in the email. I arrived for my appointment about 15 minutes early and Dave was there and even said my name when I walked through the door. After telling me the work would take two hours I was in and out in about 45 minutes. The result is simply fantastic. If you have car windows that you want tinted and want them done with the highest level of detail go to Sunbusters on 183 in North Austin.

The BEST Car Window Tinting in Austin. They typically work on high end cars and are well versed in Tinting Tesla's. Highly recommend! Give them a call they are happy to discuss options over the phone.

December 10, 2021

They aren't the cheapest option around, but you do get what you pay for. In particular if you need something harder to tint, like certain large glass run roofs or the windshield. Top quality work and service. I'll bring any future nice vehicle here.
