    I am looking to go 20% all the way around. I was quoted $190 today. I thought that was kind of high. The last time I had any windows done was like 7-9 years ago though! Does this sound OK? See ya!!

    i hang out in a tint shop because my friend owns the place and he always says that prices will always vary from place to place cause of different brands, he says prices will vary from 100 - 450 cause of the brand, what kind of tint it is and the material and if there is a 1-2 year warrenty, lifetime warrenty, or no warrenty at all

    If you're like me and you move a lot anyways, why bother getting more than a 1-2 year warranty, besides, who says the shop that warranties the materials will even be in business next year? Also, even crappy tint still lasts like 5-6 years without any problems.

    I think I saw him wearing a Lunar T-shirt!  Someone typed lumar film, though.  So, it might be that.  I thought it was different though.  If I know this guy, he uses one of the best products!  His cars were always tricked out.  I can't believe I just said that!  Better than pimped out! 

    He said his shop had been opened for over 3 years. 

    Oh yeah!  I try to always keep my top down if I can.  That reason, my windows are always down.  I have decided to move that on down on my list of to do's.

    cost me like $240 including the back window strip. But this was for 3M tint. I would not recommend anything else.
