Here we go, weather has been crappy but I opted for the 35% front and 20% rear to make it look like factory.

I think I made out well with my decision. Picked their high performance tint for $190 out the door, I'm happy so far and if I don't see something I like then I just take it back and they'll fix it. Guaranteed for life ; )

^^^ Nice color choice.

Hey this goes out to anyone. When I left after having my windows tinted I had no problem but since then my passenger door panel has become loose as is annoying the hell out of me. It could have actually been there when I left, but I was blaring music and didn't hear. It makes a plastic flopping sound when I go over a bump or uneven road. Is there an easy fix or should I take it to the dealer? and if I do take it to the dealer, think they'll charge me?

UPDATE - Turns out the screw that holds the upper right quadrant to of the panel to the door had become loose. I went and tried to tighten it as best as I could. I don't have the exact type I need, just Phillips head when it looks like I need a hex, but I got something to pop and did manage to turn the screw about a quarter turn right. Hopefully that will work for the short term until I can get a proper screwdriver.

Thanks!

Did they take your door panel off? My guys just went tight with the window to sealer & looks great.

$190 for high performance tint was a great price. Good luck with your door panel!

Yeah they took all the panels off to fully cover the glass. No possibility of light leaks that way. Thanks for the luck, hopefully it stays just a simple problem and solution to fix.

...How does that contribute to this thread? Aside from making a vehicle look better it also allows the driver the luxury of privacy. I for one cant stand when people look into my vehicle. I don't feel that 30-35% does a good enough job, but I'm not harassing the many users in this thread that have complied with their states tinting standards.

He was joking around. I thought it was funny.
