Default Solar Solutions window tinting

Just wanted to post about a good experience at Solar Solutions in Bedford, Ma. Everyone is so quick to write about a bad experience so I figured I'd take the time to write about a good one.

I got my 2013 WRX tinted (legal 35%) all around.

Pics to follow

If your debating on where to go in the Boston area I do recommend them. Price was right, they were professional, knowledgeable, quick, and the quality looks top notch (single piece rear window and no bubbles anywhere). I called them on Saturday morning 9am I was in by 11:30 the same day.

Got mine done by them 2 weeks ago. Awesome people to work with. They showed me which percentages they offered and the negatives to going darker. Ended up getting 35% and couldn't be happier.

They do get busy sometimes though. I booked my appointment for a Saturday, which meant I couldn't get in for 2 weeks, but after seeing the job they did I had no problem with that.

I've posted in a few tint threads about how great they are. They've done a few of my cars and I have recommended them to many. Top notch work!

Solar Solutions is the best. I have had them tint all of my cars and they all were perfect! So far I have had them tint my 06 WRX, 12 STi, and my fathers 2013 GTR. Solar solutions does the best tinting I have ever seen. I only had one problem with the tint in my WRX 4 years after it was put on and i think it had more to do with bad weather stripping than the tint and they replaced it free of charge even though it was 4 years old! I highly recommend them and would never go any where else! Lowest prices, best quality products and best customer service around not just in the tint game but of the whole after market automotive industry!

Got mine done there too due to the recommendations on this site. Very happy with the tint, and was pretty quick too (a little over an hour).

Im sure if you called about it and bought the overlays you probably could work something out he is a really reasonable guy, give it a try.

+6 they have done 3 of my cars, my uncles and 2 of my buddies, highly recommended.
With my most recent car (BMW 135i) I went to another place locally due to being lazy and 100% regret it! They told me a price before the job and once they were complete bumped it by $100 making it double the cost of Solar Solutions and it looked like S***!

Couldn't have said it better. I went to Solar Solutions today after reading the reviews on here and on Yelp. The car looks great, I would highly recommend them.

I was there a little over a week ago and my tint looks awesome. The shop is set back off the road, but it is clean and simple. Took an hour to do my wrx sedan and they will discount if you mention you heard of them on Nasioc.

Thanks for the update. I took my car in 2008 and I was very happy, but 5 years later it is hard to judge if they are still on par. Good to know they are and i will be taking my next car there as well.

i've had 3 cars tinted there and no issues... one went back a year later because it was peeling on the drivers side window and they did for free - like most reputable shops do.

I just had Tint King do my car and I couldn't be happier with the results. I'm also very hard to please, for whatever that's worth. I'd also have no issue with the four hour round trip thanks to the quality of service and install.
