Window tinting

Discussion in 'Car Forum' started by kimo, May 2, 2006.

  1. I just bought a 2006 Mazda3 and would like to tint the windows. Is it best to take it to a shop or should I try personally applying the tint?

    I intend to use 35% all around.

    I've never tried to do it myself. I'd just have a shop do it.

    I had a shop do 5% on my personal vehicle and my work truck. It's the best $ I ever spent. I can see out but you can't see in, and the a/c is always on low instead of full blast.

    A bit difficult to see at night but thats what windows roll down for.

    I don't believe a good tint job should cost you more than $175ish tops. That being said pay the money to have it done right and save yourself the headache. If you attempt it and 3 months later it's bubbling up you'll be kicking yourself.
