PostSubject: When did tint get so expensive?   Wed Apr 13, 2011 8:44 pm

Started calling some places and everyplace is $200+! I was going to go back to autopro in westover where I got the legacy done for $120 but I heard he stopped giving a lifetime warranty on the tint and plus he is not open yet. Also heard his work has gone down hill but he did an awesome job on the legacy.

This is for the G35x - 35% on the doors, 20% on the back glass and a 5% strip across the front
KAR - $220
Auto Trim - $225
The Speed Shop - I couldn't make an appointment b/c they don't know when the next opening is then i asked the price and he said $250. I lol'd and hung up the phone.
I know Tony's Street Dreamz is $200 plus but im not going there...

I'm going to try to call Auto Pro and see what the deal is and if he is back tinting in westover. If not im thinking about going to KAR b/c she does the best work around but i wasnt planning on dropping $220 on tint.

Does anyone else know of any good shops that do a really good job for a good price?

down here at parkersburg, i had a gift certificate for $130 to do all the windows in the camaro and he said that it wouldn't be that much once he was finished... he did a great job... imo... but i also ended up getting it done for free b/c im going to do a couple local shows and hand out pamphlets for him...- may be a longer drive, but would save some green if the cheapest is 200+

I got a $200 tint ticket from this statey once in my rsx when i had no clue it was 20% b/c i bought it like that. I tried to explain to him but he didn't believe me. the same cop pulled me over a week later and walked up to the car and asked about the tint. i said you dont remember pulling me over last week and according to your meter its 20%. He was like i pulled you over last week for tint? why didnt you fix it? I said b/c im in college and im broke you gave me a $200 ticket instead of a warning to get it fixed. So i payed the fine this week and when i get enough money ill go get it redone. Then he gave me a warning and I had to go show him it was legal later. I wasn't speeding or anything both times he pulled me over. The first time i was on 79 with my girlfriend and it was noon. He asked if i had been drinking? I said its No then he asked if he could search the car I said NO. Then he was like im calling the k9s then. I had nothing to hide and didnt want a dog tearing up my car so i said oh just go ahead im not hiding anything. He looked under the seats, in the glovebox, her purse and that was it. while me and my g/f were standing on the side of 79! then he gave me a ticket. his name is officer boyles and i filled a complaint and the lady said for tint right? so i guess he is known for this!

/rant but thats why i try to keep the tint legal and will never own a red car again!

Kristi @ KAR did an awesome job today tinting the G! She is the best around here so I recommend her to anyone plus you get a lifetime warranty!
