I paid $179.xx out the door for limo black all around and a 7 inch strip on the windshield. That was for the middle quality tint. For the 3m stuff it was going to be about $30 more if i cecall correctly. It never hurts to call around to get quotes and see if someone is willing to go lower in price. This was in texas. I had a grand marquis tinted in michigan amd they wanted $285. I said that was way high and talked him down to $225 for 35 on front doors and 5% on the back windows. Best of luck on your tint shopping.

Detail Express, ask for Matt and tell him Jason with the Talon/Focus sent you in. Matt has done all my cars, all of my friends cars and, a good chunk of the cars on MotownMuscle.com.

SunShade would depend if Darren is working out of there again.

15% all around and 35% on the windshield.

There's a big difference between being grown up and "adult". Those stickers do nothing but resound immaturity and lack of respect...and your reply did nothing to change those perceptions. Also, just so you know being 20 and having a full time job doesn't make you an adult...your behavior is the judge of that. Let me break down the stickers:

1) NO FAT CHICKS - Wow. I've heard disrespecting women is one of the best ways to find the best ones. And the best way to keep them around is...

2) Four doors more whores - ...call them whores! Love this one. Not because it's funny or witty, but because it exemplifies a lack of maturity. I could see this stick on the back of a dirty 50 year old man's truck.

3) Just Get Lower!!! - Makes sense if you car is lowered...doesn't if it's not. You own an economy car, not a Murcielago. You could drive over a dog laying on and ground and his hair wouldn't even touch the undercarriage. Come on now.

4) I <3 Haters - This is my favorite. The only people that use phrases like this are people that are starved for attention and get it by doing all of the things the exemplifies immaturity. Also, hip-hop artists. Are you a hip-hop artist?


Outside of the stickers, your car and tint look great. I like the black on white look.

I lucked out on cost. When I bought the car it was on its way to another local dealer who traded the Focus for another vehicle with the dealer I purchased from. My car was to be delivered to my dealer but the delivery driver wasn't told that and took it to the original dealer. When they got it apparently no one in sales told them it was to be sent to another dealer in trade and subsequently...they tinted the windows and put on clear door edge guards. When I went to pick it up I was told "the other dealer added tint and door guards which we are not responsible for and won't pay for it so, neither do you!" Free tint!! There is a God! Looks like 35% AZ legal in front and limo or close to limo on the rest. Works for me.

Such an amazing difference inside the car which now feels more enclosed more now that it's darker and cooler.





Great Looks! Good luck with the car.

Can you provide a contact for the tint shop? I assume you would recommend them? No damage or mess left in your car from the tint work, right?

I've just picked up a new Ti hatch and is looking to get it tinted. I'm in Lone Tree, CO.

Thanks.
