    I want to get my front windows tinted to match the stock rear tint, but I don't know where to start. I assume that just like everything else there is good and bad tint. What should I look for and what is a decent price for two windows? The last thing I was is to end up with cheap peeling tint.

    I paid $120 for my front two windows - matched the rears at around 15%. High quality stuff and no issues. I believe its a 3M product

    Thanks! That gives me a good point of reference and seems pretty reasonable.

    I went with 18% up front and I think it matches the OEM rear glass great. It is all about the quality of the film and the installer. You need to find out who does the hest work locally. The custom car guys will know. We have a local place that has a machine that cuts the tint to the shape of your vehicles windows, they carry top notch products and their installer is amazing. We have other shops that hand cut, use quality stuff, and are still great installers.

    I would ask around, then call around.

    Good luck!

    20%. Around 100 for fronts. As others have said ask around your town.

    I did 25% on the front 2 and 5% on top of the factory tinted glass for the back 3 and eyebrow. Back 3 and brow cost $200. Not sure what the front 2 cost because it was tinted by the dealer
