Tinting my Coupe windows?

anyone from North Cali know of a good place and a decent price where I can get the three back windows of my coupe tinted? And also how dark should it be so that I'd would look nice? I'll need to have two cars tinted so do you know of any places that would do it cheap for two cars? Thanks guys.

id hold out (if you can take the heat) and do it during the winter. it'll be cheaper. if you try to get it now it might be more than 200 for 5 windows. during the winter it drops to about 150ish. i got mines at this one shop over by some nursery/rockery and it was about 200 for all 5 windows. i got mines like in early june late may i think. if you're not scared of getting pulled over, go 5% all around, if not go 20% front and 5% back. but it looks better when all the windows are tinted the same percentage....

Do you guys remember the names of any of the shops that you took it to? I really want to get all 5 done but I'll just save myself the trouble and do 3. So names of shops and in what city? Thanks again.

You know that the front tint is illegal right?

haha yea, i agree with you there, if i could go 2.5% up front i would. jersey says NO tint at all on front windows, and well, f*ck that, haha. i wanna get something done, cuz im 2.5% back doors and rear window, and 100% tints in the front doors and windshield. i would never tint my windshield, haha, but i wanna get my doors at like 35%.
