    R U sure that's the tint you want? I just had mine done in Tulsa, Ok with winco by madicos. I would urge you to go with a heat reflective tint as it is much better than a tint (imho). It's kind of nice to get in the car and not be greeted with temps in excess of 100 degree's. On the downside it is much more expensive.....

    Send me a PM with your email address and I'll forward a msg to you I got from another member here who explained window tinting really good if your interested in heat reflectivity...

    Got my Saturn done a couple of years ago. I had not searched it on the internet first or consulted with anybody.

    Would of been 270 even but I had to pay NY tax because I paid with a debit card.

    Later I find out that somebody at my firehouse knows the owner of the place and I could of gotten it done for half the price.

    I spent $200 and got 35% put on all my windows-front, back, rear 3 piece slider. the 35% up front is just dark enough for me to be happy, but still light enough that hopefully I wont get pulled over for it. the 35% ontop of whatever comes stock on the double cab looks really good. makes me feel alot better about having a few thousand dollars worth of sound system right there for someone to smash a window and steal.

    Paid $230 for full tint all the way around (including front window). Done by one of the best tint shops in this half of California. It'd be 250 - 275 for you here.

    Id say about 150-175 is the correct price.. But my buddy does window tint for a living so my 100 for however i wanted it was good enough for me!

    my tint was done at an "non-certified" shop by "non-certified" citizens. blacked out my back window, access cab windows, and 50% my driver\passnger windows for $110..no problems , looks great. if you are in california, there are alot of these types of places, you just have to find them.

    $265 is also way high for my area... $220 is about the highest you'd pay here and even that's too high. i'd go no higher than $200
