I was curious of what is the avg cost for window tint for all windows, including a sunstrip. I got quoted @ $235 in GA. This is 20% 3M scotch tint with lifetime warranty. I was wondering if this price was too high. And is there anything else I should know before getting my new type-s tinted. Any help would be appreciated.

i paid 180.00 for mine and was told that i paid too much. it depends where you go too. you'll find a better price in a more ghetto area. my cousin got his mercedez tinted in a lower income area and they did a great job. he had 7 windows done, including the small ones that don't open in the back and he only paid 110.00. and like i said, the quality is great!!! it just depends if you feel comfortable or not going to that type of area. i'm not, i just look at the extra 70.00 as a saftey charge :D

as far as i know the % doesn't make that big of a difference in price. i would have paid the same amount if i had gotten something more opaque. (ended up with 35%)

First off $235 is crazy. I got mine done 20% around w/o the strip and it cost me $130. He would have put the strip on for free but I agreed with him that it looks gay. But if you like it go for it. What part of Georgia are you in? I got mine done at Darkside in Augusta, GA and they did an awsome job. Lifetime warranty on mine also.

Man you guys are overpaying!

I payed 190 CDN with ClubRSX discount (144 USD). Lifetime warranty, really high quality job, 35/20 tint.

Reno, NV area = $200 for all round plus sun strip on front. There were cheaper at around $145 to $160, but these guys are regarded best in area. I had no qualms about the cost. Work was excellent ... lifetime guarantee. I'm crazy happy with it.

Thanks to everyone for the input. Should I be looking to get a good deal(I do need to save some money) or should I be more concerned about how well the tint shop installs the tint. I wouldn't mind paying a little more if I know the shop will do a good job. If I were to get it done at a good price, isn't there a chance that it won't last as long?? I'm just worried about the phrase "You get what you pay for.." you know what I'm saying? Are all shops tinting techniques the same??
