U have a point, ill give u that, but the point of this thread is to find a place/person who will do a good job at a good price, if your saying that my lifetime warrantied tint job... never fade or peel.... for about 200 bucks is a bad purchase then ud be wrong, at least in my opinion... im happy with the job that was done, and for the price i got it done at... i couldnt be happier!

If you were "always told" that, then you pay too much for, well, everything. So, you're saying all things equal, one should never try to get it cheaper?

I got a name brand tint, installed at an Apple Auto Glass. After settling for a week it looks great. There was some rash on my rear window that the installer spent about 30 mins minimizing, and even that only left me a couple dots where the tint is not flushed to the surface. This guy is a full time tint installer, doing about a half dozen of the larger shops around here. Ottawa's a limited market. (WHY the fark are you even in the Ottawa threads?)

I watched him in action before I committed to him tinting mine, and gave him each car for the whole day to allow him to work it into his schedule, reducing the price.

If I DIDN'T shop around for price, the SAME INSTALLER and SAME TINT done at a different location would have been $375 for my car *alone* as quoted at the shop across the street from my office.

So before you go off telling me I should sell my car an by a bicycle and insinuate a derogatory Walmart reference, learn the basics of economics. Do you pay retail for electronics, or look for the item you want on sale?

Exactly.

Maybe start a thread giving specific prices for specific tints, on diffrent bmw bodies and see how many people are interested? Cutting down all other tinters sayin if its cheap its no good isnt gunna solve/change anything.....

Soooo..... i have an e34 that has no tint installed... how much approx. Would it cost to tint all the windows including the front with a 6 inch sunshade? I want 5% all around with lifetime warranty

And are you going to come to Ottawa to do the work? I still don't understand what your relevance to this thread is...

Personally, I wouldn't deal with someone in business who tries to insult and bash. It makes you look like a threatened, immature.. er.. window tinter, I guess.

5% will get you pulled over. we won't install that.

e34, no tint, MaxB price is $225/ with limited lifetime warranty and I'll do the sunshade on the front for free (that can be in 5%)

It's 3M film so you can take it to any 3M installer in North America to get it serviced with your warranty card.

I put a thread up, I just searched for 'tint' and came to this thread.

if you want it, you can have it. Just sign the waiver saying that you'll pay the $75/hr to have it removed when the cops pull you over.

though I wonder why my tags on the orginal rant didn't show. I had a "< rant >" and "< /rant >"

Alright, fair enough. If you'd been local it would have been a deal I'd considered for sure.

That's any car from a MAXB user. But not SUV's or Vans.
Trimline is a franchise with 36 locations. That's why it's in the 613 area.
though not all Trimlines will offer a tint at that price.
