Average Tint Cost
 
I'm planning on getting the windows on my FF tinted later this summer. Of those that have done it, what was the cost to do yours? Just trying to find out an average price.

Thanks

It depends on a myriad of factors, from the quality of the film to the quality of the installer.

You can get cheap died film installed for less than $200 usually, but the higher heat rejection films might be a bit more expensive.

Something like a geoshield dark matter film on all windows minus the front was around $300-350, maybe $450 all told with the front windshield done in a lighter shade, but that was supposed to be a higher end film.

Something like a LLUMAR, or 3M might only cost around 200-250, etc...

I'll definitely want the higher quality because it looks like doo doo when I see cars driving around and it's bubbling and such. "Yo check out my tint job" ehhh...looks...good?

Window Tinting here is very popular for the obvious reason, so the prices tend to be competitive but there are the places that use poor quality materials and also do not use 2D plotters to cut out the film to a template matched to your car.

The only place I use is Tint King and have used them for years, they install Formula One LLumar films, typically it's around $200-250 to do a compact to mid-size on average.

They use to sell Courtalds Films, now called something else but all of them are owned by Eastman Chemical, I had one of my VW's done with it back in the 1990's, it held up fine for 15 years in the Florida sun and heat, still looked good when I sold it.

It pay's to buy the best you can afford, sadly I have not even gotten my Titanium tinted yet because I am not even sure I am keeping the car at this point.

I paid $200.

Paid 180$ for my ex-gfs car to get tinted. It sucked and was poorly done. Found a different guy through Yelp.com for my vehicle and he did it for 220 out the door.

He did a great job and used a high quality llumar tint. Shop around, make phone calls. 220 or so apparently isn't a bad price at all.

I had all my doors, hatch and the top of the windshield to the AS-1 line for $275. This was with the Llumar Ceramic tint that comes with a lifetime warranty

Mine was ~$150. 3M stuff, lifetime warranty. It was about $30 cheaper than I expected. Didn't get the windshield strip done. At the rate these windshields crack it probably isn't worth it.

I have Llumar and had 20% all around with the back window and sunroof done with 15% and got that out the door for $230;it was the same shop that tinted my Eclipse back in '95 so I feel good about my lifetime warranty.

I paid $350 for the back 5 windows to be done. High quality and guaranteed for the life of the car.
