I'll be getting tint for all the windows and rear slider in my extended cab. (that's 7 windows)

$160 at a shop that does incredible work in our area.

The rear is already darkened glass but I want it a bit darker so we'll probably go with 35% or 20% on the rear (I forget what he said would make equal to 5%) and then 35% on the front doors.

You want horrible tint laws, try 70% legal limit on the front doors in California. 70% is almost like having no tint at all, you get UV protection, but that's about it.

On my car I have 5% on the back doors and rear window and 35% on the front doors, the difference makes the front doors look lighter then they are, so far I haven't been hassled about it (knock on wood)

EDIT: apparently I can't use IMG tags in this forum as my images are not showing up. - Never Mind, I am an idiot and used .html links, not .jpg.

A couple of good pictures that show difference between 35% front and 5% rear on my car.

You are getting just the doors done ? I would think about $100, I got my whole focus done for $250 with extended lifetime warentee (which cost extra). I thought I read on the wall in the tint place $100 front truck doors.

I personally want to get my back window darker also, maybe even 5%

It cost me 90 to do all windows except windshield. Then I got another layer over the front to bring all of the windows down to less than 2%. Never had any problems but you have to get hooked up on the inspectoin sticker here in Texas. Ill have pics for ya next week when I get my new tires if you still need them.

I thought it was a pretty close match to the factory rears. The guy that did it said that if i went any darker i'd get pulled over in the next few months because tinting is illegal in NH.
