I went to a local tint facility and for $75.00 I had the front tinted and a 5" strip across the front windshield, guaranteed for the life of the vehicle. I had the same tint % for the front and what the stock rears were.

I have seen a few self applied tints that were terrible, bubbles, non adhesion spots, I didn't want that on my car.

If you can do it in one shot I would do it, but most people will end up cutting the tint a bit small or leave bubbles or wrinkling it or getting dirt inside the tape and the window. I have done it.

If it said its 3m, 3M is printed on the film, the stuff they sell is tint but does nothing for heat, or fading be careful.

Pay the man. You can get the tint done how you want it, how dark and with the windshield strip how low you really need it.

I did the windshield strip at the top on my 01. It very low, since I'm short. At the center of the windshield the bottom line of the tint is at the base of the rearview mirror. At the sides it sits about 4inches below the AS1 line. Yes its illegal, but I've never been bothered about it, and doubt I ever will, since when I drive it looks right. The tint guy did a couple of strips for me and I picked out the one I liked which is the illegal one. $50 cash and I was on my way. Who did my windshield officer? I don't know I bought it this way.

Never mind the pine needles, when I took this pic I showing how they get into everything. But you can see the tint here.

Do you have a tint shop you recommend? I'm looking to tint my windows and am looking at Rosemead/Whittier/Downey area. (I seem to recall that you might live in SoCal)
