Window Tinting in the NY and NJ area

I am looking to tint the 2 front windows of my 2014 GC. I called two places one in Staten Island and 1 in Union, NJ. The one in Staten Island wants to charge 60$ and the one in Union 100$. What you guys think of the prices? I question the quality of the one in SI because I get mixed reviews.

Anyone from the area know any other place that is reasonable?

Re: Window Tinting in the NY and NJ area

You need to go with the quality of tint if its a good deal doesn't mean it's good tint. You need to find a place tht gives a life time warranty to not purple. Also some tint is harder to to see out of than others, I used a place in amytiville called clear view (think that's how you spell it)...it's a bit of a hike but well worth it I have done all my cars and trucks there and no complaints. Hope is helps

Re: Window Tinting in the NY and NJ area

Make sure you get authentic 3M film. Some places advertise 3M but it isn't. I went to Auto Image in Central NJ to get my tinting done and they did a great job and they left the 3M logo on the tint so I could see I got what I paid for. Before leaving I asked them to remove the logo for me. I did it about a year ago and I think I paid a little more for the 3M so I want to say it was around 120 + tax.

Good luck.

I am in Westchester, paid $100 for Huper Optic on only the two fronts last April. I believe it was either 18 or 20% black.

How much are they quoting you for the 3M for the fronts? Or you doing all around? Either way, let us(me) know how it goes.

I am doing just the fronts and they quoted me 100. I have to double check if it is 3m that they r using. I am assuming so cause people have given me stellar reviews about them. I will check and let everyone know. I am going in about 1-2 weeks to get it done. They were booked completely this weekend

Re: Window Tinting in the NY and NJ area

I have never had any issues using lumar or johnson films. I mean everyone has a preference but I have Lumar on my GC and it matches really well.
