In general, does anyone know about how much it would cost to get your windows tinted. I had Zero Luck on the Window tintig message board. I am getting my 96 Subaru Impreza outback Wagon tinted and a 94 Legacy tinted. How much is it worth. So I know this is not exact but is it like 75 to have a car tinted or 175? I have no clue becasue nobody around here does it. Thanks

I talked to a shop a few months ago about tinting the windows of my legacy sedan. They quoted 250$ for quality materials and a lifetime warrenty. You could probably find it cheaper but keep in mind your wagon has a little more glass.

In the Hagerstown, MD area, I was just quoted a price of $180 to tint everything but the windshield on a '00 OBW. They had a $25 upgrade to better material available.

I think I paid $160 for 3M metallic tint, labor, and a 3-year warranty for my Forester.

I went with 35% all around (except the front windshield). I bought a 100 foot roll of ebay and I am doing it myself. The roll cost 40 bucks with shipping. I am averaging about 2.5 tries per window, so by the end I would have used about 50 feet. If you can get somebody to help you, it is 1000 percent easier.

My wife's WRX has 35% all around, it has a lifetime warranty and cost $220 to install it. It looks good, but I'm going to have mine done a bit darker when it comes time for it.

I have 35% on all except front doors (not NJ legal - and I drive this car a lot) and windshield. Lifetime warranty, UV resistant, in my opinion very good quality tint. $200 pro-installed.

Look at the bright side - tinted windows in NH would destroy the resale value.

I used a 13% Platinum. I think limo is 6% and I think you can get it in 4% as well. I was able to go darker becasue the color was platinum. Limo is the kinda thing that will get you a ticket. But you should be able to put it on the back window and the rear windows. For me I just want to keep the Sun off my little baby. She has fair skin.
