      Check out Car Pretty as well. They have damn good prices and I've heard nothing but good from them.
      Hey, you, me and pr4ctic4l should get together and go as a group to get tinting done. We could all save some $$$ that way.

      $180, lifetime warranty and always a nice job. They're usually filled up for a couple of weeks ahead.

      Actually, I'm only getting one replaced window tinted, and I'm hoping that it will be a close match to the other 4 windows. My windows only have a light tint (50%) so I don't think it will be too hard to match. Anyway, I don't think I'll be too much of a help in a group deal, but I would be down for that idea if it would work...

      oh yeah, carpretty does 1 piece rear. and theyre very quick because they have a machine that cuts the film to spec.

      Had my tint done at Car Pretty. Quick job, but not so great quality. I had numerous small bubbles on back, dust and even wrinkles in the front. Went back to have it redone after a week of drying, and they gave me an attitude. I had to convince them that the wrinkles were their fault and not manuf defect. Jerks... You get what you pay for.
