Is that for all the windows or just one window? $135 for the whole car seems to be a good price dood :shame:

I live in Colorado so we get about 350 days or so of sun here. I got ALL my windows tinted 15% for 180.00 cash. To bad your not here in the mountains I could have it done for you while you ate lunch :lol: :lol:


But 130.00 for just the front is a little over priced. Are you going to just get a 12 inch strip on the top or are you going to get the whole thing done?? If so don't go any darker the say around 45-50% or you'll have legal issues. Not too mention the vison problems at night.

so i got ripped huh....btw i already had it done.....

heres the whole story.....for one thing i do tons of business through these guys and also bring them plenty of business so they usually hook me up pretty well!

but i first i wanted to get 35% all around with the strip across the top. well i came by the first day and i was late so they could only get the rear done.

so i set another appointment and came again.....Oh the tint guy called in sick...so i have to turn around and leave...(its an 3o minute drive for me and i have to get someone to take me home)

so i come back the third appointment!!!!!! and they actually finish it.so i paid them $150...but without the strip and tint guy was gone so i had to set another appointment for them to finsih the job!

4th time coming back....i get there and oh what "the tint guy comes out before i leave and my ride and feeds me this BS that "oh well these guys should have told you that i cant do the strip on your car due to the thick teflon around the rear view....it would bubble"....

so i had to leave again!
but then i noticed they had fucked something up with my windows they wouldnt roll down!

so i had to call again and set up my 5th appointment....and i was kinda pissed by now, so i said btw tell him to tint my whole windshield 50%...and if i dont like it cuz that teflon BS he will just ahve to rip it off!
so i come back and he says "they broke my LEDs in 3 of my doors so now they have to replace them! oh and by the way that will be $135.63. I WAS LIKE ARE YOU SERIOUS....he says yeah its a tuff job he said it took him like 2 hrs and they have to do that all in one piece!

so i paid him but im going to give him a piece of my mind when i come back for the 6TH time for them to repair my shit!

he just lost a ton of business if he wants to keep this shit up!

but the shitty thing about this situation....is they are the best around at what they do!....custom audio and shit....so i was planning on having them do all my audio and custom work! they just sent their WHITE Excusrion the SEMA LAsvegas and won first place SUV!

THIS SUCKS :pissed:

Sorry to hear about your problems with the tint company. There is no way it should take 2 hours for the front windshield. My friend who owns a tint shop took about 20 minutes for my windshield, and charged me $60. BTW I have 35% reflective. He had no problems with my car and I have a lifetime warranty. Can't believe he broke your led's along with dealing with the rest of the problems. :pissed:

wait..so you paid $135.00 for tinting the whole entire windshield and not just a trip across the top right???

from reading the above posts.. everyone seems to be confused as to what you were trying to do.

I got quoted $150.00 to tint the ENTIRE front windshield (not just a strip across the top). and another $210.00 for the rest of my windows (5-window)

totaling $360.00 for a tint job. All windows tinted.
