Default WRX Clear Bra

I'm looking to get a clear bra for my 2010 WRX in the Phoenix area, and just wanted to know if the $375 the tint shop quoted me is a fair deal. If any of you know of a reputable place in the area that can do this with a fair price, let me know!

Gilbert is kind of a ways for me since I live up in Surprise, but I'll think about it if the price is right. How much do they charge? The shop that quoted me $375 is Real Cool Window Tint on 54th and Camelback.

That is enough to get your front bumper re painted twice after normal road wear and tear.... what is the point?? "ohhh my clear bra will get chipped but not my paint." I do not relate.

Of course...If it's the same person / company then I wouldn't recommend them. I have a 2011 wrx (car listed in the profile) and had him come out to my house to tint it. Without going into too much detail this was a year ago.

Tint had a lot of bubbles which he claimed would go away, wasn't properly aligned which I didn't notice right away after he tinted it - there's a gap between the trim and the tint. I tried numerous times to get him to come out and fix the problem - twice he stood up his own appointment that he promised he was going to be there for. And after that he ignored every single phone call and a few texts me asking him to fix some things that obviously were a part of a sloppy install. Never called back, never responded.

I didn't want my money back, I didn't want anything crazy - I just wanted to get the sloppy work fixed. Should have followed my gut feeling and gone with the gilbert tint shop everyone is recommending. It was either him or the gilbert shop - they both came highly recommended by others.

The name of the company was/is: Real Cool Window Tinting - 602 413 7536 - guy's name is Keith. He only did mobile installs at that time.

I used these guys for my clear bra: http://smartshield.wordpress.com/
They have a little shop in Chandler, but they have different sites around the valley. They also do "Inyati" spray in bed liners at their location. They did a great job installing the bra and the pieces were perfectly cut on a giant plotter printer setup. I think I paid around $275 or so for the front of the hood, the front bumper, my grill and the fronts of both side view mirrors on my bugeye. They warranty the "Expel" film they use for 7 years I believe..
