Re: how much to get windows tinted?

the front windows need to be lighter so officers can see into your car while approaching a vehicle...just what I've been told

Yeah it would of been about 140-150 but I paid the extra to get lifetime warranty so I can get them fixed if they bubble at all so I went ahead and did it since it was 15 bucks more

Wow that ain't a bad price I was expecting it to be alot more expensive, I'd love to get my windows done for my birthday next month, yeah I think that the reason the law is because the cops can't see the driver,but when they come up to the car they have bright lights so I don't get it. Yeah my moms car is wicked dark but it came like that from the factory and it's almost impossible to see at night

Mine was $150 with a lifetime warrantee. Go 20% in the back and back 1/4 windows. It really makes a difference and police can't measure the back ones, only the sides. Justy opinion though

Geez I have been getting quotes of $200 in northern va. Here you have to have 50% on side windows or 35 with a medical waiver.

It's expensive here. For what it's worth, I haven't been stopped and i have 35 percent all around. Tint Pros in Woodbridge near Ikea is a good place...quick, good job, and lifetime warranty...

35% with medical waiver!?!?!?!?!?

with a waiver I don't believe they can say anything....just roll down the windows when and if you get stopped!!!

Yea I get what you mean that's why I just ordered the precut stuff on eBay it was only 25 bucks the hardest part is getting it on tho I did pretty good better than I expected but it got the job done for pretty cheap

Re: how much to get windows tinted?

I'm afraid to do it myself I always see those cars where guys have done it themselves and it is all full of bubbles and it looks aweful.

Re: how much to get windows tinted?

I paid $200 for 20% a year ago. Lifetime warranty on the side, quarters and rear window.

You can do it yourself, but it is tricky to install and sometimes that pre cut **** can be junk. Unless you're experienced in installing vinyls and graphics I'd leave it to the professionals.

Re: how much to get windows tinted?

I paid $100 for:

Tint strip across windshield

20% both door windows

15% both quarter windows

And my Vert Lexan panel was already factory tinted at 15.

I got this done yesterday.

Yeah man. Lifetime... which means pretty much as long as they are still in business. Bad thing about tint & detail shops in my area is they have been dropping like flies since 2008.

Re: how much to get windows tinted?

I think I paid under just under $200 for mine that was the doors, quarters, and rear window here in VA.

Shop around. Also depending on the type of film you are getting might change the price.
