Default Window Tint Price?

How much should I expect to pay for a window tint? I want the same tint all around the car.

And..I just got some gun metal colored rims, how dark should I go with my tint? I don't want it too dark, I still want to be able to see out of the windows at night.

if you have a dark interior .. go with 20%. I have tan interior. I have 5% in the rears and 20 in the front. blends pretty good.
But then again, I have a coupe .(not official mazda 3 owner .. yet)

Example from my car:

I just got my tint done last Wed. for $210, Llumnar 30% all around on black mica, it looks soooo damn sharp. It's no too dark, but dark enough to blend in with the car. Highly recommended for all 3's

Anywhere from 150-200 is good for a quality job with lifetime warranty. I spent 300, but I'm picky and lived on the beach at the time... and the shop was down the road so I'm sure their rent had something to do with it haha.

I think anything under 20% is too dark, just get the most reflective tint you can (not that mirror stuff). It'll look darker than it is.

Wow, you guys in FL have good prices. I've looked 3 places here (western WA) and I got quotes of: 280, 325 and 350. I'm going with the 280 (Frank's Window Tinting in Lynnwood) because he was a nice guy, does great work and has a very high standard for his work - also because he was the cheapest

I imagine prices are a little cheaper in FL because tinting is popular and laws are less harsh. That's my guess.

Just got it done this morning!

I actually went in to get a quote. I told the man what I wanted and he said he'd look at it and to leave it at the shop for a few hours, which I thought was strange to take that long for a quote, but there was a few other cars in the garage so I just figured he was busy.

Well, some how or another, there was a bit of a miscommunication and he didn't give me a quote, he went right a head and tented the car! But, it looked so good I didn't even care to get a quote then. The price wasn't bad at all, $130 for the windows except the front windshield.

It's lookin' schweeet, I'll post pictures later tonight.
