Window tinting

Any suggestions for someone to tint my windows in my car tomorrow. I picked up my new car yesterday and I have tomorrow off, so I would like to get it done.


I want someone who does a qaulity job with quality tint for cheap.

preferrably.

go to ziebart or what ever the fuck that place is called... lifetime garantee so you don't ever have to worry about peeling or it bubbling up.

Get the tint with the metallic shit in it. It lasts longer and looks way better after a year.

What color did you get btw?

I got the Sunburst yellow.


I am probably going to go to "the detailing shop" in Newmarket. They were reccomended to me by gtasentra.net and they give a discount to forum members. $225.


28% all around.

But, it sucks cause they are booked up for the next week and I am super impatient.

30% is the maximum tint on the front-side windows, I believe. I personally don't like cars where the back and front tints are of varying percentages. So to keep it all legal, 30% all the way round is good in my opinion.

BTW, you can usually get those guys to "slip you in" and get it done right away if you offer more money.

Cheers ... Ian :)

I've had dark tintis before.. I don't think they look all that great and I HATE driving at night with them. I almost backed into a ditch once with 5% rears.

True.

But I have my limits as well.

I will pay up to 25% more for anything, if I can get it faster or done better.


But, that is my limit.

I am not suggesting that you should offer more than a reasonable limit (25% is fine). I was just saying that at some price point they would change their mind. But chances are it would be an amount that is not worth it just to save a few days.

I had a really good experience getting my tint done.

Tint King -> Etobicoke (queensway and islington area i believe)

$200 for sides and rear windows

I got an illegal tint, but have never had problems with it. It was a really good job and never peeled or faded. It'll be 2 years old in april.

holy shit!

5% ?! I couldn't see shit out of my CRX when I was at 10. When I got my windows tinted at 10 (sides and rear), I got them removed and retinted at 25% within a week.

wow. 5 -that's nuts.

I highly recommend the Detailing Shop, I've had my last 4 or 5 cars tinted there and my family has been dealing with them for years. Best quality tinting anywhere IMO... he does most of the tinting for dealerships in Newmarket, including Porsches for Pfaff and Nissans for Donor (where I got my 2002 Spec V).

It'll be worth the wait for sure.
