Talking

"Right I decided to get my windows tinited on Sunday by a company called pro tints who are based in west london. The head tinter has been doing it for 12 years and has come over from the states their work really is top notch. I got 4 cars done that day and have managed to secure a deal where as people from the e36 coupe site will get their complte car done for 175.

Here are a few pics I was really impressed with their work and as many of u know i am a fuusy barstool when it comes to my car I couldn't fault there work.

they have a big tent which they bring to you if your in london they travel to you or you can travel to them in west london the front doors are not ment to be open as it lets dust"

That was a quote from the guy who has arranged this and a couple of users have replied to say they are perfectly happy too

nice looking ride he has!

Looks good. Not sure what the pound to dollar exchange rate, but I got mine done for $165. So looks like a good deal.

BTW, I like the 'fussy barstool' connotation. Is that popular in the UK? What does it really mean?

Need a new sig...

1.8 dollars to the Pound

Costs a lot more to tint here - we have less cars than you, less people who want them tinted and less people tinting them!

£175 in the uk is quite competitive

I had mine done wednesday, cost me 160. I knew the guys friend so I got the discounted price. I thought 200 was standard for window tinting?
Besides, it doesn't matter what you pay as long as it comes out GOOD. I've seen some people seriously mess up window tinting. I would gladly pay an extra 100 if I knew the guy who was going to install the tint was good at it.

Tinted all windows or only the sides ??
Got my Mitsubishi Galant tinted on sides ONLY for 120$ and they wanted 200$ if they do also the rear window (that means they have to TAKE IT OFF and glue it back on place afterwards) but I said no as I was affraid they will brake it
