    I had this place by my house do it for me.
    I believe it was $250 for all three windows in my hardtop.

    The only thing is you gotta be careful with window tint because i was loading some metal in the back of my truck and it scratched the tint a little bit.
    I want to say it was like California tint on dell ave, campbell....
    but i could check into it if ya want.
    If you did go there to get your windows tinted, you'd have to drive the extra block to come to my house and have a beer. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    <font color="green"> Extreme Polish &amp; Tint in San Jose did all the windows on my Subaru (station wagon, 7 windows plus 2 sunroofs) with their best all metal tint, for about $300. Did a good job too. </font color>

    My buddy has a window tinting business for the last 16 years called N-detail window tinting. I am sure he can beat anyones price, especially if you have the windows out already. He is mobile but lives in livermore and we could always hook up at his house or something.

    Rob- be carefull that you don't get pulled over. It is NOT legal in CA. to have your front windows tinted. If you do get pulled over hope that the officer will let peal the tint off while he/she is there. Or get the $20 fine go through a bunch of paper work. Then peal it off. Set up a time to meet with CHP and get it signed that you pealed it off. Suggestion: DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY

    Eric- Like Rob said it is over by the back side of Costco. Down by the Harly Davidson shop. They are kinda pricy. I asked to get my back roll up window they wanted about $180.00 And I laughed in the Guys Face...

    GOOD LUCK KEN

    Ken,

    You must have bad luck (or DARK tint)...I've always gotten the 5-window tint on my vehicles (doors, quarters, and rear) in a 50% tint and have NEVER been hassled about it....I've certainly been pulled over enough times, so it's not CHPs lack of opportunities.... I think it has a lot to do with the first few seconds of the "encounter" and how you behave. I always show a lot of respect, and that seems to get me out of a lot of trouble.

    hey eric i talked to a cop and he said 35% on the rear windows is totally legal but any tint in front of your face is illegal....he said that u can have half your front windows tinted as long as they can see your face haha...also he said that most all police dont care about tint unless its black or your causing trouble...
