Tinting question

I am thinking about getting tinting on my 06 Accord and i was wondering if anyone had experience with Diamond Solar tint??

The shop is decent and they say its lifetime guaranteed and i went to their site they have dealers throughout the US.. has anyone tried them or dealt with them?? any problems/bubbling/chipping etc?? The price they quoted was $138

Any help would be great

Thanks

Since it is guaranteed, I would give it a shot...the worst thing that could happen is bubbling, but they could always fix that..and $138 is a great price, I had mine tinted for $150 and it was done in a home garage by a mexican dude, did a very nice job, no bubbling at all...

damn that is a good deal... i paid over 300 for mine... metallic tint 15% all around.

I got them tinted on the front windows all the way to the top of the window instead of cutting off about 1/4" from the top and also in front of the 3rd break light.

included life time warranty against fading etc...

DANG that is a great price. the thing u want to be careful about is that, even if the PRODUCT has a lifetime warranty, oftentimes the warranty will NOT cover the cost of removing the old film. get it if u feel comfortable with the product, read a few reviews on google.

Just get the warranty terms in writing and give it a shot. Like has been said, that's a great price.

Well, I got the tint done. went with 50 since the interior is already dark and it looks great. The lifetime warrenty covers everything including scraches and also removal and more.
the down side to this is when they put the tint on they desided to joy ride in my car and put 20 miles on it and also got the trunk wet on the inside. but it seems to be drying ok. but trust me i ripped them new asses for this since my car does not even have 200 miles on it yet.

Have any of you had trouble with your windows going off track since you had them tinted? One of my friends has an older Accord with tinted windows and has a horrible problem with the windows going off track. Thanks.

From what I read.. gotta be careful about the plastic thing scratching your windows. It looks like it wasn't fixed for the 06's. I'm gonna get mine tinted soon as well.
