Question Window Tint

To the Vancouver Area:

Where are you getting your windows tinted? Prices? and, What do you think the best tint for a Blue Ridge Pearl would be? Blue-Black (smoke) or somebody mentioned a bronze tint would look nice on a blue car. Any ideas?

Thanks,

I did 35% on my silver RS. It's pretty good. If you have black or blue, I would go darker though. Either 15 or 20% tint...

Here's a pic but don't mind the mud...hehe

Yeap! That's the one.
$150 is only for 3 windows. It's not cheap but top quality & he only use Lulmar film.
It's illegal in BC to tint the front windows. No matter how light it is. You might get away with it and that's your choice.
As for the rear, you can tint it anyway you like!
15% is not super dark, more like the tint from a Sienna. 5% is super dark(what you see in limo) I put 35% on mine and it's kind of light(like the tint on Range Rover)

Since our windows don't have the door frame and is pressed against the rubber, would the opening and closing of the window wear down the tint?
