How Much Did you pay TINT

OH MY GOODNESS, I did not know that tinting your car could be so expensive.. I got quotes from $165 to $250.. How much did you guys pay and how much should I really expect to pay?

165 should sound right for our cars. I got quoted about there before and that includes taking tint off with Lifetime warranty.

125 for 35% reflective with lifetime. But thats with a friend discount. Normally for our car he said he would have charged 250.

The price really depends on where you live, in a place where there's a lot of competition for tint shops, the price is probably lower around $150. But if you live in a town where there's only 2 tint shops like where I am, then expect to pay more. I paid $250 for mine.

Here in the Metro DC area I got quoted $200 and $310. I had my 04 and 99 Accords tinted by the shop that gave me the $200 quote, so I am going to go there to do it.

Something my buddies and I have noted about tint pricing: It depends on the car, not the material: My 04 Accord is bigger and has more glass than my 94 Legend, but the Accord cost me $179 to tint with top-of-the-line tint (35% sides, 50% rear, VA legal tint). But since the Legend is a "luxury car", it costs more. A buddy took his RAV4 in for tint, and it cost him $300 from a local shop, another buddy took his wife's Lexus RAV4 rip-off (I can't remember the model #, but it's the exact same car) to the same place and got charged $125 more! At that rate, I wouldn't have bothered.

Mine was 180, but that includes 3 retints on the front windows. It is an insurance plan in a way.

I get pulled over, i change it to light to comply with the fixit ticket, then i make it dark again, then if i get caught again i make it light and keep it light cuz i learned my lesson.

Mine was $199 + tax for 20% all around at ZIEBART. It would have been $249 for my accord b/c of the 2 rear triangle windows they have unlike the legends. I said skrew that, but got my tint back when I got my legend.

P.S. Make sure they are going to tint behind the third brake light and not just around it. (They went around it on mine the first time.) I laughed it was so tacky. I removed the rear seats then the rear deck and they retinted it!

There's cheap tint and good tint. Cheap ones will only last 2 years and starts to fade. Titanium tint should be the best.
