they want 300 for 4 doors and a hatch (mazda3 5 door). they use Solargard

number two place wants 180 (norm 250) have a hook up... they do custom body work inc paint jobs ect.. they use 3m... how they both are giving lifetime...everything...

soo which brand is better... and solargard.com is not working sooo not sure if thats a good thing....

no tint lasts forever so you will need to get it done again at some point if you keep the car that long. so go with your hook up and 3m is quality.

If i was you, id use what the dealerships do. Llumar, its a quality brand and it has a metallic substance in the tint itself to prevent or help stop the annoying purplish tint that can appear from aging.

3m is pretty good quailty and that's not a bad price. my friend owns a sound shop and did my coupe for $75 $300 is way too much for tint even if it is "lifetime" which i doubt.

$180 for 7 window tint is about right. $300 is too much.

$300 for windows is a rip. go for the $180 deal, thats how much i paid for all 7 windows on my sedan to be tinted.
