depends on what kind of tint is being installed. Formula 1 tint? Metallic? Ceramic? If it's their bottom of the line, then, no, that price is high.

eh...i paid 200 and i had a 25 dollar off coupon that i randomly found on the phone book so i paid 175, any other shops in the area to have it done, seems like a lot but tinting is an art form and takes a lot of time and a lot to know how to do it well

Prices are going to vary based on how many windows you're doing ( 2 door or 4 door ) and location.........

I'll be paying 225 shortly for my 08 but I'm getting all the windows tinted besides my front....
rear sides and back 5% and driver and passenger front 35%

That's about average around my area and I've gone thru the shop I'm using many times in the past and their quality can't be beat.

If the shop is good. Then $250 sounds fine. but if its some average joe shop, Take your business somewhere else. The best shop in my city 'i would dare say state' Quoted me $210 for a sedan with strip across.
