I want to a nearby window tint place, and they are charging 255. I thought that could be a little pricey, So I checked somewhere else. They gave me 3 different prices and also 3 different options for tent which I didn't really know about. What do you all think is a good price for window tint?

Really I think it depends more on the shop. Everyone seems to use good film. One shop quoted me $150 for just a tint strip at the top. I bought a "precut" tint strip piece (which I now have two of if anyone is interested), for $35. The mobile guy wanted $25 for one installed (vs $80 for entire front windshield). So imo if the company is selling pieces online and the guy quoted me around the same installed, ~$30 for a tint strip installed seems fair(and his prices in general are more fair). He said he used to have a shop for years and the expense wasn't worth it because most people wanted mobile install. So your also paying for the shops rent and other expenses at that point too. The guy knew his stuff, been doing it 20 years or so, and has a couple corporate clients as well. Also good quality can vary by region according to installer. He previously used Llumar he said but had tons of issues here and Arizona with the heat in those regions. He said there were many warranty claims and clarity issues so he switched films. Also reason why he said no one in hotter climate use 3m films. Not saying either company makes bad products, but some of it's regional from what I gathered on our conversation. Maybe the film I have doesn't do as well in colder climates, (don't really know enough about tinting just learned this past two weeks from research getting mine done).

Prices are subjective... depends on product you get/want/use and competitive prices in your locality. I would suggest first determine the product you want to use, then find a installer that has the highest rating for installing that product. I researched the product I wanted to use, then asked/checked w/friends & others (w/tinted windows) who did their installation and how they felt about product/install. In the end I picked LLumar Formula One Pinnacle Ceramic Tint from an installer that was highly recommended and paid $299.00. I had the darkest tint all around that my state would allow w/o a medical authorization.

I think it depends on what material they are using, what kind of material are you looking to get?
LET SEE - I have No Idea , I just Drive through at all Fast Food Places , Haaa , Really !

NOT just Materials , but the Prep and the Accuracy of Slices , Cleanliness of Installer ..

I got Best Ceramic that was available @ Time , sure One is able to get Gold Blended Tint , or some other

I wish I could have found $225 around the Austin area. Looking for my wife's Accord prior to trading it in was every bit of $350 or more for a quality tint. Glad mine came with a real nice tint job from the previous owner.

In the 90's F here recently. Having the front windshield done has made a tremendous difference in the heat coming into the vehicle. Am able to have the temp on the ac set 9-10deg F higher and be at the same comfort level. My gf even mentioned she was impressed. Very much worth having a high quality tint all the way around, (sort of have to here in vegas) but first time doing the front windshield. Will def do that on future vehicles. Looking forward to the copper tint for the house windows he was talking about. Should really help my energy bills and heat here.
