window tint

Is there a difference between the quality of window tint you would get at a dealer. I got a price of $99 for my new Accord (summer special). should I be skeptical? It is guaranteed for life and it is LLumar film.

Is there anything I should ask before having it done. The price looks too good. thanks

Yes, I can tell you there definately IS differences in the quality of window tint material. Now, the hard part, which one is better? That's going to take some research on your part. A good shopper is an educated shopper. Talk to some tint places and let them pitch you on their product and then you can make an "informed" decision.

I just looked in the yellow pages and there's probably 50 places between you and me. I really wouldn't have any idea where to send you. I'd just make a few phone calls and ask for some info on different films, then compare what they tell you. You'd be surprised how much of an expert you can be after a few phone calls.

In addition to getting a job that doesn't break the bank, you might also want to make sure you get one that doesn't break the law. The darker window tints are actually illegal, even though a lot of the tinting places will gladly take your money and apply them. Actually getting stopped for illegally tinted windows is a little like getting stopped for no seat belts; you're more likely to get a ticket as an additional one to, say, a speeding ticket rather than actually being pulled over primarily for the infraction itself. But you do need to be aware that there is a legal standard.

thanks for the additional input...I was aware that there are laws regarding darkness. I think I have my work cut out for me on Monday.

one more thing

If you find a tint place make sure it will not be gone or out of business after you have your new tint put on.
See how many years they have been doing it.
