thanks for the info!! i called them and they quoted me $140 for blue tint for 3 windows (back, back passenger windows x 2). They reminded me that the front 2 windows are illegal to tint. I dunno what to do, cause i think with them all tinted blue, it would look much better but i dunt wana get tickted for it. They only have 35% blue tint and nothing more or less.

I got my car tinted there this week. I chose a 5% for the 5 rear windows. Took about 5 hours since they had to take off the old tint, and then apply the new tint. Cost 150 to take off tint, and another 170 to put the new tint. I was satisfied except that I expected the tint to be darker (my friends car, you can BARELY see inside) and there were a couple of bubbles in the window, but that goes away in a week.
