self-serve window tinting: SUMMER HEAT BLOCK?

I'm also interest in the the film.  My goal like most is blocking out the
heat and not the light.  In fact, I'd rather not block out the light.

Is the titanium film the best for blocking out the heat and are there
different grades of the film that let in more light?

Since it's titanium it probably reduces the rear detection of radar.  Is
this so?

Thx.  glenn
