Post Prices on window tints?

Hey everyone..
What is the average or good price on tinting the windows on a MY01 Silverthorn? I'm thinking about getting the tint that seem to have silver that blends to black, depending on the angle you look at it. I'm not sure what type that is, but I saw it on a silver civic and it looked pretty sweet. I can just imagine it on the silver scoob. any ideas on what I should be looking at for price??

I just got basic tint, nothing fancy like that. It came out to $160 for my wagon which is pretty good price. I paid cash though. It's always better to pay cash for a service like that.

I have a 2000 RS 4-door.
I got the rear window, and two rear side windows done for $160 Canadian. I think thats about $5.00 American. Kidding. This tint came with a life time warranty on both parts and labour.. If it ever fades, bubbles, peels, ect... I get it fixed for free. The manufacturer of the Film used was SunRite. I'm quite happy with it so far.

I had all the windows on my wagon done for $200, but that was the 'higher-quality' tint (not the purple crap) and a lifetime warranty. Believe it or not, this was the cheapest shop in the area.

It sounds like you want mirror tint, which in my opinion looks pretty bad, and I believe is very illegal. And a cop can see it from a mile away.

Maybe the stuff you're talking about is called neutral. It looks mirrored thought. A general manger wanted to do mine with it. I told him just smoke. I ran into a guy with a BRP Impreza that wished he did the smoke also. He had the neutral on his car. Lifetime warranty on both those styles thought.

$185.00 for my wagon locally, metalized tint, which helps reflect heat. Same stuff on integra for 3 years, with no signs of any fading/ bubbleling/ peeling etc. Dark, not limo, in back through the rear windows, med. in fronts per tinters recommendation.

I am glad I got mine done in Texas, $60 bucks for my99 lifetime warranty. Now I live in Jersey so if it goes who knows what I will do. It still looks pretty good. I think the farther north you live the more expensive it gets.
