$240 cash. 17% drivers/passangers windows, 7% all the way around the back. Sunroof and "sunstrip" on the windshield, also 7%. Lifetime warranty, had it fixed already once as it rolled up on the drivers window, they lengthened the tint at the front of the window so it wouldn't happen again, got me in as soon as I pulled in the parking lot and had no problem fixing it for me. Crystals Tinting, Barrie, Ontario, Canada.

What shop is this? I've been looking around the area and will probably get it done the next time I'm down.

225. He wasn't supposed to be at his shop in the suburbs, but made a special trip for me, so I bought him lunch too. So, figure, 235. 35% all around, darker on rear window (25%?), 5% banner on windshield.

Since when do cars not come with a some sort of tinting across the top of the windshield??

There is a guy here locally that will do any car for $150 using quality tint. My friend and his wife both got new Honda Accords last year and he did those and they look great. I am getting my (1) year old FF done on Friday.

It pays off doing good work as this guy is completely booked up three weeks out.

Had to wait a couple weeks for my guy too. Did good work, and used 3M film. Turned out really well, just waiting for the last of the bubbles to dry out.

$175 for 20% on everything but the windshield, all hand cut, looks great inside and out.

Even the edges look like it came from the factory that way.
Global QDP, not dyed and has a lifetime warranty for bubbles and color change.

The owner said he would install 3M or a couple of other more expensive brands if I wanted to pay more, but its what's on his personal cars and his favorite film.
