    Tint Bitches!

    Hey All,

    I have an 05 silver V and am thinking about tinting the side/back windows and all the lights front and rear (not fogs). I have not done anything like this before and I am wondering what the price range should be and what kind of quality differential is out there. Any opinions and especially knowledgeses tard.gif are appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Anywhere from 100 for ghetto mobile tint, average 200-250 for a quality job, and more than 250 for the yuppie shops. 35% looks nice. It will register a bit lower since there is already some tint in the glass so if you're in one of those states and you plan to act a fool, keep that in mind.

    Oh, don't tint the front lights, biotch.

    Thanks for the info guys, that's a good starting point. I have seen some pics where the front lights are tinted and it looks awesome but I don't want to have bad lights at night, guess you can't have it all :P

    I paid around $200 for window tint on my V with a lifetime warranty. I got carbon black tint at 18%. Awesome quality! It's easy to see thru at night, and because of the bright DIS display, it looks closer to 35% when driving at night...at least with my tan interior it does.

    I think mine was high 200s and I went with 3M Color Stable 20 (lets 16% of visible light through) all the way around.

    Rakenjevnk and Rakenjevnk like this.

    Yeah, black chrome applied by physical vapor deposition and not electroplating. Few more pics here http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...-stockers.html

    Thanks for the compliments btw!
