California Tint next to Tech 3 on Monterey quoted me $220 for all the windows except for the front windshield on my 6th gen sedan. Originally $230 before I told him about bringing in two other cars with me. Is this a good price or do you guys know of a cheaper place with lifetime warranty in the San Jose area? Thanks.....

it depends...what kind of tint do they use? 3m is good because it has a life time warranty. But in my area, 20 is about the highest, and 180 is probably the lowest. so it seems average to me.

Mine was 190 with taking the original tint off, and then putting an illegal tint on. (18%)

220?!?! omg..... what a rip...

what kind of tint are they using? How good is their work? Do they do the back in 1 or 2 pieces? do they take out ur 3rd brake light? Life time warranty?

I got mine done for 150... Llumar tint VERY VERY good work,

All my friend got theirs done for under 200 at different shops. And I have a sedan too.... i say keep looking around.

That's average price around here in Nor Cal. There's a place that I went to before out by Silver Creek that did it for 200 a few years back (on a coupe). Now they charge $220. Getting tint done in Nor Cal is EXPENSIVE. I'm taking my car out to So Cal to have it tinted since it's like $150 or something like that out in So Cal.

Aite...just paid $240 for mines at California Tint. Turns out that $220 was for a three year warranty coverage only. I was feeling a little bleh about the price, but it's the results that matters. My car looks A LOT better. I think they did a great job on the tint. They took their time and looked for any kinds of flaws carefully.
