I don't know about cost, it's been years since I got windows done, but make sure it's legal in your state. I got pulled over with a friend once, in a blizzard, and the bastard cop handed us a razor and told us to start scraping, or he would. Also got a ticket.

Just so you all know, If I think you're an ******* I will gladly tell you. I'm not your everyday girl, so don't expect me to act like one. And yeah, I do like it topless and dirty!

Nowhere is tint illegal, it is the darkness of it that make it illegal. If that were the case almost all cars from the factory would be in violation. When we send our squad cars to tint it is about $135. But it varies by how many windows and size.

I'm sorry, I should have been more clear...I meant make sure the percentage he is getting is legal. I think it has to be 25 or 35%

I don't agree....Here in Illinois, tint is illegal (any % or darkness) to have on your front drivers door and passenger door windows. They must be just plain, clear glass.

Also, you can only have the top 4in of your windshield tinted, but you can have any % tint you want on your rear/side windows other than driver/passenger windows.

My cousin just got a $645 ticket for speeding and for window tinting. He was fined $250 just for having 20% tint on his front windows. Oh yeah, in Massachusetts you can have tint on your front windows but the darkness has to be like 30% or something.

Yes its illegal to have FRONT 2 windows tinted (driver & passenger side)

Georgia Window Tint Law
Georgia Tint Law Enacted: 2005
HOW DARK CAN WINDOW TINT BE IN GEORGIA?

Darkness of tint is measured by Visible Light Transmission percentage (VLT%). In Georgia, this percentage refers to percentage of visible light allowed in through the combination of film and the window.

Windshield Non-reflective tint is allowed on the top 6 inches of the windshield.
Front Side Windows Must allow more than 32% of light in.
Back Side Windows Must allow more than 32% of light in.
Rear Window Must allow more than 32% of light in.

Anytime anybody asks how much something is gonna cost, that's just pretty much wasted effort!!! There are SO many variables in the equation, not the least of which is geographic location...but the real value of this thread is the information about the legality of window tinting...Ya just gotta ask yourself if it's really worth the inconvenience, and possibly worse consequences, of window tinting being the probable cause of a traffic stop! Feel free to read between the lines here!!!

call your local tint shop. yellowpages.com

the prices in california are goign to be different than nj and different than florida, etc...

not that it matters at all but here in wilmington, nc tint costs are:

$50 for the front two windows
$130-$180 for 4 doors and the rear window (price depends on whether the window seals are rubber or felt... felt sucks to tint.... price depends on whether the rear defroster has matrix dots.... price depends if their are more than a total of 5 windows getting done such as portal windoes or solder cherokee windows)
$20-$40 for a windshield banner

price is the same whether you wanted 35% (legal) or 5% (illegal) or anything in between.

if matching the front windows of an suv or truck 18% is an almost perfect match to the rear factory tint, fyi.

if your windows already have aftermarket tint then expect to pay an addition $100-$250 to have it removed and your windows cleaned... rear defroster type is usually the deciding factor on price.


now, none of that is goign to help you unless you feel like driving to wilmington... but if you do, shoot me a pm. the guy i use will guarantee the best film quality, prices, and installation quality in town with a full warranty

-Erik <--- tinted mom's volvo 15% and dad's suburban front windows 18% for christmas two years ago and they can't figure out how they ever lived without it
