Just in case there's no promotion, you can go to n-motion. I got it done for more than 3 years ago and no prob so far, and hopefully never

Larry Lee or Ricky Q
Larry Lee is pretty well known, Ricky Q did 3 cars for me and pretty decent price. They'll be cheaper than n-motion etc.

they take a lot of shortcuts. they dont remove parts of the windows such as the tilting glass arm, instead they cut around it and the end result is

also they used a lot of black marker to cover up spots they didnt cut properly.
and the bubbles...

the best part of the whole experience was that they gave us a refund (minus $20)

I'm also interested in having tints done if it's done right and the price is reasonable.

I got mine done at Yau Bong Auto Glass right behind T&T in Richmond. The guy did an awesome job and he has so many different kinds of tint.

+1 one for Larry. It says 10 years experience on his site, but it also said 10 years exp when I got my integra tinted back in 2001! Did an awesome job on my Evo recently, and I recommend him to anyone looking for tint. Definitely one of the top people to go to

Get 20% if you want to see at night time. 5% you better have a backup camera.

+1 for Larry Lee too. It was $120-150 back in 2006 depending on # of windows. he does it from his garage. he was just across the street from T&T on renfrew.

if you guys do as a group buy, he'll give you a bigger discount.
almost 5 yrs later and no bubbling, no fading, still looks exactly the same. 35% was find for me as my matrix has dark grey/black interior.

I'm down for a group buy, if Larry Lee does that kind of thing.

I'm mainly concerned about the dot matrix all around my windows, hopefully he's good with that.

Alright, well matrixftw said he does give you a discount for group purchases. So far we got,
1.Mangoo
2.Blueworm
3.Adamnur
4.Myself

Someone give him a call and see how big the discount would be because his prices are already pretty darn cheap. Let me know!
