How much does a tint job cost anyway? I might decide to get one after my car is road worthy aswell.

i called tint king like a couple months ago
if you do something simple like 35% all around its like 90-100 bux or sumthing around there
but if you do something like dark in the back, but lighter in the front like 20% thats when it gets to the $150-200 range
i want to get tints, just not sure on what percentage i would like best

Thanx for the info. I would go dark in the back and lighter in front. I think it gives it a cleaner look. imo

My car is black on black, i did 35% all 4 windows and 20% the back window... i'll post pics soon. Trust doing it the way I did it is the best. Or if you're looking to go dark, just do 20% all of them

try and get a pic posted i really want to see the 20% back and 35% sides

taking a look at 20% alll around looks a little too dark
i want dark, but not too dark
