I got mine tinted at this place called Yaobong in Richmond near the Yaohan. I think it is about 210cad for five windows. Pretty good workmanship as well.

yaobong is within the yaohan carpark on the side. there is a small road leading towards the shop. as you enter yaohan from the 3 road entrance, turn right and than left towards the back carpark. there is a small road on the right hand side near a garbage container. turn in and it is on the left.

I did Trimline in North Vancouver. I've had a few cars done by them and am always happy.

AVRIX!
They do the best work. Period.

Depends how muuch you want to spend. I paid $120 for 5 windows through Larry. To the untrained eye, its a perfect tint job, but to people who can tell b/w good and bad jobs...well

Don't go to YaoBong, that place sucks....at least to my untrained eyes.

They were supposed to cut a circle to let the window handle thingy go through, but instead, they did a bad job in cutting the film. They used a black marker pen to cover it. They gave me tons of bull**** that they can't do it again. So, be aware.

I heard many good feedbacks about larry.
Excellent job from the place beside BoyzClub also pricy !

Why are all of you guys saying 5 windows. Do you have the guts to drive around with the front driver & pass door window's tinted. I wanted the front's lightly tinted but I decided not to because it's illegal.

I think all cars that juts have the rear tinted are ugly. I figure if 90% of my car was illegal, might as well keep going.

50% in the fronts and 35% in the rear blended in perfect. During summer at the day, you won't notice. It is only during night time and underground parking you notice the fronts are tinted.

i did mine 35% rear and 50% front and it looks good for me. I did not know Yaobong had a bad rep, my car's tint looks pretty good to me. Veightkiller go for this Larry guy, sounds like he knows what he is doing. 130 for 5 windows is cheap.

Yaobong doesn't have a bad rep, just that he screwed up on my car and gave me reasons like: It's hard to remove it, even if we remove the tint, there's gonna be glue left over on the little pores of the windows, and you'll have a even worst tint.

Did they at least fix the problem for you ? Cause they told me that i could go back there if there was anything wrong with the tint.
