      I have it on my car and I really feel that it makes a difference vs conventional film. Worth the extra money and I would get it again.

      I clicked this thread as fast as I could until I realized I had read the title sans one letter.

      On that note, I wouldn't mind having some legitimate tint, but with anything more tinted than 70% illegal in NY, and they do pull people over for it. Oh well.

      Ok guys have a question for you. I live/work for the US Army in Germany. To get my R tinted it will cost me 250 Euro = $342 roughly. Would anyone who has gotten their windows tinted tell me how much it cost for them. I want limo tint on the back windows (that is all we can tint in Europe).

      My thing is I would pay someone to have a tint installer cut the tint and then mail it to me in a round tube. I then could send you a check (from the bank) to cover the cost of tint and shipping. I am sure all this would still be below $150 and then I could just pay 50 euro to have the windows done by the tint place.

      Any takers?
      thanks
      Roger

      I am in germany, and they want 250 Euro =$375 to tint the passanger doors and the hatch only. I was wondering if anyone who has tinted the R, how much is it in the states? Been 3 years since I have been in the states and 5 years since I last tinted a car in the states.

      I would like to see if someone could go to the local tint shop, have them measure your windows again, and cut the film. Put the film in a tube and mail it to my PO BOX. I would of course pay for shipping, tint and I am sure it would be less than what they want to charge me here. I am looking at limo tint for the back and 25% or 35% for the front two windows.

      Anyone PLEASE....
      Thanks

      My F1 tint was $250 installed. I had it done here: http://www.tintking.com/

      You could probably call or email them and see if they would be willing to ship the film to you and what the cost would be.

      I have yet to drive my car at night, but I always put 15% in the back and it has never been an issue for me.
