Glad you asked Josh. Absolute Tint on Mission Gorge Pl. Its on the other side of the freeway from Qualcomm Stadium. 5 windows for $179. The three back windows have lifetime guarantee, film, labor, etc. Can't guarantee the two rollups because its illegal to tint them that dark (other than factory). Anyone interested, PM me and i'll send you the info.

Just FYI, if you're not familiar with California State Law, 70 is the limit for rollups, so what I have is definitely ILLEGAL. Be warned! wave

i would put a (okay) tint on the car and not care how good the tint was if i lived in a area like i do which tint is not legal... why waste ur money one sumthing you will get a ticket for and have to take off?

you get tint you pay about 150 for the tint
then the fix it ticket is 150
and then to take the tint off you have to pay about 150

total : 450 about

waste of money you can get a exhaust with that money

but if you live in a area its legal get... the BEST SHIT you can buy is the brand "LLUMAR" like stated above.

^^ it's just a risk you take

most cops won't pull you over for it, but if you get stopped they will write you a ticket for it.

All you gotta do it get an optomitrist to say you have sensitive eyes, and get them to write you a letter saying it's for medical reasons.

Actually I paid $179 for the tint, which is the best deal i got around town.

Fix it tickets usually don't cost anything, unless theres a fine attached to it (you're pulled over by a sheriff). Just take it to the police department and show them you fixed it. ticket gets written off. grin

To fix the windows, its $40/window, so $80 total.

Total is $260. If you ever see police and you get anxious, just roll the windows down. thumbsup

Thanks guys (and Kristen happywink) for the compliments. I'm so glad I got this done. It looks great, keeps my car cold inside, and I haven't been rolled yet.

Bubbles are not going to go away. They were just telling you that so they wouldn't have to fix it. If they're really small and unnoticable, I wouldn't worry. After couple days, take it back. If they have warranty or guarantee on their work, it won't bubble or crack or peel. If you have Llumar brand tint, you can clean it with Windex. The guy told me to wait a couple weeks before I cleaned then.
