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 84171 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.

Concur...about $250-$300 for a good job.....

20% looks sharp.......

I did 5% on rears and 20% on drivers/passenger.....

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.

Yeah, black chrome applied by physical vapor deposition and not electroplating. Few more pics here http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/2004-2007-cadillac-cts-v-appearance/234570-redline-v-black-chrome-stockers.html

Thanks for the compliments btw!

I have 5% on my windows with black interior. I personally love the way it looks. I wounldnt suggest it though if you have bad vision while driving at night. It feels like your in the bat cave.

I have 5% all around aswell, have to roll the windows down at night to back up, and very carefull switching lanes, does look great tho.
Heres a poor picture of 5%

I purchased my car used with all the light fogged out, except the headlights. I live in palm springs, ca and let me tell you i got pulled over once a week. My car is all blacked out and shaved down. According to cops its a suspicious car , but once a hot bitch comes out of it there surprised. Its suxs. I had the tailights paint removed. I got the first ticket that i coudnt flirt out of lol paid 100 got another one and it was 209... I just paid 50 to remove the paint.... Lame

I love your rims! But my brake disks are all rusty looking like that i hate it :/

Ahhh, the Black V, I can only imagine how hard it is too keep looking immaculate but damn is it worth it. Mine is silver and shines when it's dirty but the black looks so badass! I will have to phone the cops around here and ask what the laws are for tint in Alberta, Canada. I am hoping I can do the tail lights, windows, and black gloss rims. Should "mean" my baby out a bit.
