^ As it say's what did you pay. <p>I was quoted $400.00 for seven windows for 98% UV cut any percent and color for seven windows. <p>I think I'll get 70% front two windows and 15% for the remaining five.

Re: Tint, how much did you pay and how many windows? (slrising)

Well, it was $180ish with taxes for all windows, front two 35%, rear three 5% and a 4" strip along the top of the windshield in 5%. My car is the max legal tint for my state, but I am contemplating doing my front two windows 5% and chancing getting a fix it ticket because I am tired of the two different tints. 5% keeps the car a lot cooler inside.

Huh? Yes it would look tinted, 75% transparent front darker rears of 20 to 30% transparent would be pretty dark. I tinted my last two cars but can't even remember ball park of what I paid, then both had max legal on all windows and the fronts were always lighter. I didn't mind the difference in tint% on them and IMO unless your going very dark all around the front will always look a little lighter anyway due to the windsheild not being tinted and the majority of light entering from there.

I paid 50 euros for the four back windows - tinted them myself (and it went really well, in case you ask) - and had the trunk window done professionally for another 100 euros. <p>5% tint on those. (foliatec)

I paid $230 for all seven on the V50, only to have the front two removed because it didn't come out well. So...$230 for the back five at 20%. Job was a B+ to A- job so I'm kind of ticked...

Check out Rich from <A HREF="http://www.undergroundtinting.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.undergroundtinting.com</A> he does great work and a lot of G35 and 350Z guys went with him. He's out in Suffolk County.<br>Think i paid $220 for 35% on 5 windows. <p>p.s. I may have misunderstood you but I believe the car has 75% from factory, most shops offer 50%, 35%, 20% ... seeing how you are also from NY I say 35% is a safe bet, any darker will get you tickets (varies w/ type of vehicle i guess)

I just did 35% all around for $100.<br>There are a few places around here that will do it for that much, it has to be understood that its only around $40 of actual tint, the rest of the cost goes into the shops pocket

Re: Tint, how much did you pay and how many windows? (jdsr917)

I'm not sure if it's 75% from factory, that was just a guess since it seemed like the Z's windows before the tint. I have always paid more than $100 for tint regardless of 3 windows or 5 I believe you get what you pay for. <p>You can also try Speedworld on Sunrise Hwy in Baldwin but Rich from Underground is a real car enthusiast and will do the job right.<p>As for pics, I just came back from Montreal so I will have to wash the car first <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"><br>I didn't know/check for regional meets but will definitely look into it now <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">
