Cost of window tinting

Hey everyone, ok so I'm moving to Texas in the next few weeks and I need to get my windows tinted. Undecided as to whether I'll get them done before I go or not... I'm just wondering how much it roughly costs down there for all 5 windows down there.... how much did you all pay? Or what's a good place around Fort Worth to go that I should call for a quote? Its about $300-350 here for good tint. Thanks

I payed $100 several years ago for all 5 windows in my CC and my Drivers side is showing its age with alot of nicks and scratches so I'm pulling it off and going to tint it myself,it's not hard to do.Just matching the rest of the tint that's hard.

its 175 in tn for a 4 door car so maybe little higher for the truck since its bigger, i wish someone would do a seminare on tinting be cause you can buy quality tint so cheap its unreal lol even pre cut for your windows. seems to be hard to mess that up but im sure i could lol

Oh well dang, I will definitely wait then! I was going to do about 20% all around... do you think that will be good enough to keep out most of the heat? I'm not used to that kinda heat so I don't know what is a good percentage to have.

I've helped guys do their own before and it didn't look that great... ended up having bubbles and marks from that little tool that you use. And they got more bubbles as the heat hit them. So definitely don't want to do it myself.
