Default Best place to get windows tinted?

I contacted sunshades earlier today, and they told me over the phone that it would cost from $249 to $325. This seems a little high to me, even after I told them it was just a small four door sedan the lady gave me the same numbers. Am I missing something?

I want to get a mild tint, 50% all the way around. Any other suggestions on where I should go?

Lightbulb window tinting


we had our window tinting done at shades of competition.
they did a nice job,price was reasonable, warranty, they give you legal tint laws but will tint to suit.
hope this helped.

Here is a link to our past thread about tint. It has lots of opinions.

I would take it to Sunshades. I had my tint done by Shades of Competition and they did a terrible job.

Can I get mirror tint in Cali?

Yes, I got your mail. I replied. If I had blonde hair, green eyes, and some boobies then I would get almost anything I want.

Mike you need tint and some shorter shorts. It's almost spring.

I think we'd all get anything we wanted if we all had blonde hair, green eyes and boobies. Mmm.....boooooobies.

I've been to shades of competition before, wasn't very comfortable there. Guy just seemed too willing to tint my windows, kind of twitchy, if that makes any sense.

I heard sunshades is the best despite their prices. Get what you pay for huh?

Of course, now the tint has to wait a week since I just ordered a Blitz Nur Spec exhaust.

OK, so thundercheif is going to sunshades for his tint, is this the best place to go or is there any better place? For whatever reason, the link you posted Winslow is no longer in your post. therefore I can't read the opinions from before.

Also, a slight poll as well, what percent do all of you have? I have seen most of yours, just wanting to gauge what % to get done.

Thanks,
Ben

When I went to Sunshades I told them I wanted some Nice silver, semi-reflective tint. The offered a %35 tint, very nice silver and reflective too! But it would have to be special ordered and that would be for 100 bucks more! But man would it look nice. I have been waiting to get enough money to afford it though... ahh well..

P.S. My Friend got his car tinted at sunshades over 4 years ago. No bubbles, or any other defects at all. The tint has faded a little bit, but it has not turned purple like most other cheaps tints will.

i was told they have a lifetime warranty on their window tints so the fading should be covered...?i was also looking at the silver tint for our silver RS and i got quoted 100$ more than my WRX as well....but its a small sacrifice to make em look good

Call them first before you go there because they are usually tinting building windows.
