I paid $170 for mine. Removal of the old ****ty tint, 15% LLumar on all the windows, 5% sunstrip. I wish I got 5% instead, but expect to pay a little more for it.

Depends on how legal it is is your stae and who you got to I know a guy around here that does mine 5% allthe way around for like $150 but there's a guy who told me like $75. In states where it's legal to get it's normally cheaper

My buddy charges like $150 for 5%. I just got a tint ticket the other day. The meter read 7% and the ticket cost was $171. 5% is the way to go. Im about to put another layer of 5 on the back windows of my truck and when i get my truck inspected next time, the inspection sticker will be taken off so ima tint my windshield 35%.

WA and OR state cops like to get people with dark *** tint....heads up.





5 windows regardless of %, depends on material......Suntek Carbon(higher quality) tint for 5 windows ran me about $160 from a highly reputable shop locallay.

My guy does Luminar and 3M. Legal for the front windows is $99. $120 for anything illegal and you dont get an official receipt for illegal on meterable windows. Back windows are $75 reguardless of how dark on an ext cab. Cheaper for more tint because they dont roll down. It's a simple cut, trim, and tuck.

Luminar or 3M or other high quality brands. Many cheapers will bubble over the years, distort the image some, will peel, or turn purple.

i paid $170 for my tint. 5 windows plus the visor on the windshield.

Supposedly, Any non-factory tint is illegal on the front windows and windshield. But that is like arguing about the legality of HID headlights. Cops just dont seem to care in most places... at least in CA.

I paid $60 for my two sides at 20% He's knows me and cut me a good price... but I'm sure he'd not be much more than 100 for both to a retail customer.

i know jol means well, but those limits posted seem to be for only the front side windows.

a more complete list can be found here

http://www.tintdude.com/laws.html

and 08XLT4x4 they dont care if you drive anything except a honda ... drive a honda you WILL get rolled ive had 2 tickets and a warning in my 96 integra that preceded my truck, and the 94 accord that preceded that

i hope to move to az in a few months, in which case goodbye front plate holder (tint will still be questionable, mines 20% front AZ legal is 33%)

You are correct it was for only the front side windows because as the chart shows Missouri you can have anything on the back and rear side windows. And they will stop and check the STI is running 37% and has been checked everytime they stop it.
