Any more than $90 for the windows, and that should include a warranty, is pure profit for the tinters.

they are in the business for profit man so it makes sense to charge more than 90 :) anyway, expect from 100-120 make sure they use a quality film tho and u get a warranty. u dont want it turnin purple and smelly on u!

I usually pay around $150 for my tinting. Didn't have to pay for the Focus as it already came with tinted windows. I grew up in the desert in Palm Springs, CA and it's a must to have tinted windows, high demand, high price. I think everyone has a lifetime warranty these days and if they don't........stay away.

The labor and tint itself only cost any tint shop roughly $35-50. So, they also are in the business to deal with customers on pricing. $90 is reasonable to negotiate. They make their cash and you've got your tint.

$250 for my windows but that was in an 8 window car, with lifetime warranty against cracking, peeling, or turning purple. 6% all around.

I don't know my pecentages or anything, but I got the legal amount all the way round and darker on the back windows for $140 and that was including a tint strip on the windshield. That included a limited lifetime warranty as well.

legal is normally 35%. 20% is my favorite, 5% is limo and is just too dark IMO there should be a dif in price for different darkness, but u may get taxed for them tinting it illegally u know.

u guys are lucky being able to tint all around... here in VT, it's illegal to tint any of the front 3 windows.
The price I got quoted was $100 for the rear three, and it's commercial quality wtuff with a lifetime warrenty.
