I would never tint my own car. The bodyshop next to where I work comes in to clean the cars they work on, and I've never seen such an array of poorly "home tinted" cars. Go find a good customs shop or a tinter in the yellow pages and have them do it. It's worth the extra $100-150, trust me.

yeah i had all the windows tinted at a shop but they cant' do the windsheild strip down as far as i want it for legal reasons. which isn't hard to do yourself. i've tinted a couple of those before. tinting isn't really that hard unless the windows are as curved as ours. the shop had to do a couple tries on my windows and wasted alot of film. made me glad i didn't even try

Legal smegal. When I had my tint done the guy asked how dark. I told him 15% and hes just like cash only then. The tint shop shouldnt be able to be held liable for what you get anyway. They are just applying what you ask for.

The best way to remove scratches form window is to go to walmart and buy a roll for $9.00 and then follow the directions and paste it into the spot where youy have scratches at.

Be sure to cut it exactly where the the scratches are and paste it into the exact position of the area you need it the most

To save yourself some money you can remove it yourself. Then you will just have to pay to have new tint put on. It almost cost as much to have it removed as it does to have it applyed.

Chain - Thx for the link on removing tint - very helpful. Your car is the same color as mine - what color tint do you have?

Anyone know of a trust-worthy, reasonably priced, tinter in the Northern VA area?

There is a company called "THE LAB" in fredericksburg, VA they charge $169 for whatever tint you want but you have to pay cash for tint that is lower than the legal limit only because of liablity concerns.

They did my BMW M3 really nice

However if you want to save money...
Tinting is so easy I could do it in my sleep. The only reason I let them do my M3 is because I did not want to get messy and the prices of putting tiint on is so cheap now, compared to the past
The reason most people's tint is so jammed up and look horrible is because they do not get messy like I do.

First you need to cut the right size of the tint by putting it on the car without removing the backing and put it adhesive side up meaning the side you are going to put it in you car must face the outside so that when you get to the next step it will stick to the glass and not your hands.

Then once you have an exact cut you will HAVE TO GET MESSY because
the people with clean clothes afterwards are usually the ones with the bubbles at the end.
I get a bunch of soapy water and make it as soapy as possible and put it really thick onto my windows
then I put the tint on it and it moves freely...
Now once it is on you just squeeze the water/soap with a squeegy <--hope I spelled that right
out and wha la!!!!!

Your tint is on without bubbles.
