How much do they cost? Because I can get my front windows done for $50 and they are insured for life

50 bucks is a steal!

That would be a great deal. I wouldn't mess with doing it yourself. I paid 80 for both front windows. Same garantee. I went with one shade lighter than coke dealer dark. BGJ

i can get the tint for 26 bucks and its the 2 fronts, rears, and the back window... i can do it myself it just takes the cutting out of the scenario which is the hard part just not sure on quality

If it doesn't have a warranty and is cheap then its probably low quality. Cheap tint doesn't stay looking good very long even if its installed good. The more sun light it sees the faster it turns purple.

I had my window tinted by professionals and then had to remove the front to for inspection and figured I would try to retint them my self to save money. I purchased a kit of ebay for just the front windows ($14.95) and it turned out pretty well. The tint was cut perfect but the quality did seem to be not as good as the stuff I have on the back, because it is the same shade and I can see through it as well as the rear windows. A different brand off ebay maybe better, dont know.

i would just pay someone reputable to do it, the guy who did mine took about 3 hours and it came out amazing. the only thing i can suggest is cleaning out the dirt tracks in your windows the dirt will scratch the glass and look back on dark tint

well the local shop around my house sales precut tint but if it isnt good quality like posted earlier it turns purple and looks like trash.Precut is actually just a plotrer that has a program that has the dimensions of your windows. They use lumar tint ive seen vehicles tinted for 10 to 12 years that still looks awesome
