I'm planning on tinting my windows soon, around how much should it cost for the whole car??? This place near me called The Tint Shop says he'll do the whole car for $190, is that too much for tints???

call around. it depends where you live. also, its good to do it around this time since its more expensive around summer time since its in demand.
if you live in south oc like me, shops have to charge more so they can stay in business.
you might be able to get it for 150, but make sure they use good tint, and have a good reputation.
where are you located?

I got '04 325i tinted for a little under $300 (all windows except windshield). A friend of mine who has an '02 330i got his done for about the same. We both live in San Diego.

Hook ups at the my mechanics shop quoted me $145 all arounad and they use high quality stuff. Look at about $150 but not too cheap and know when you are getting a good deal.

The $190 place probably uses some better than decent tint.

What constitutes good tint. Are 3M tints the best?

Got my '03 325i done for $125. here in Atlanta (all windows except sunroof and windshield). Guy did a great job, lifetime warranty. He applied LLumar Window Film. Is it considered good?

I think mine has LLumar on it. $200 except windshield. Good job, lifetime warranty. You've got a bunch of options, just know that if you go with a metallic film it will last longer but you can also really screw up your radio reception.

Yes, my LLumar is the metallic tint. Looks nice, works great, but really screwed up my AM radio reception. Luckily I only listen to AM when I want sports talk radio, but still miss the crystal clear reception I had prior to tint.
