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?

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

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.

Was its 120$ for the 2 front windows or all around?

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.

Theres Tintmax in queens that uses 3m and cost about $90 for both front windows, theres also The Tint Shop in Great Neck that also does quality work.

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.

robbie_c 05-01-2013 06:15 AM

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

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.
