    Huper is somewhat of a premium ceramic window tint. A bit on the pricey side, but IMHO well worth it.

    I paid $550 for all windows , but I'd expect it to be a bit higher. This is the 6th car I've had done at this shop, so he cut me a little break.

    I got SunTek on my Mazda, the guy didn't do the best job of installing it so there's a few lint bubbles but nothing major. Overall it's good tint for the price...just stick with darker stuff, I got 70% up front and it looks purple when you look through it. I paid $185-200 for the rear 5 and was dissatisfied with the hatch window he gave me the front two window for free but never did anything to fix the hatch window.

    I've included a few pics for yee! :cool:

    (18% on the rear 5 btw)

    Like I wrote, I've done it to six cars now. I'm a strong believer in buying top quality when the cost is justified. Ceramic tint (in my book) has no equal.

    Actually I just found the receipt, it was $250 for the back 5 and the front 2 free. :( yikes.

    70 sounds pretty good though.

    I guess I'd have to check out the fruits of tint like that- I've never been in an area that was so hot to need it. Can I get a ride??
