    Hey Y'all,

    Just got a quote for $620 for all windows including the back. Does that sound like a fair estimate?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Well, it is hard to say because various types and quality of film are different cost, so it is hard to know how much of that price is product vs installation. I paid $820 for all the windows (except windshield) for a high quality ceramic film on a model X. Those chicken wing windows were tough on mine. Glad you don't have that on the 3.

    Better question is, what quality tint and is the installer good.

    In the ballpark depending on materials and whether rear window will be one or two pieces

    They said the back will be done in one piece. Sounds like it's fair, but appreciate the feedback.

    I've gotten a few quotes from respectable shops in my area for ceramic tint on all 4 side windows and rear glass: Prime XR Nano-Ceramic for $399 and $450 as well as Prime XR Plus Nano-Ceramic for $699.

    All of these estimates include doing the back glass in one piece as opposed to two.

    OP, your price seems fair for ceramic tint.

    Actually seems a little cheap. Hope they actually do the rear in one piece.

    I paid $660 for everything (including the windshield) except the back on my Model 3. Highest quality ceramic. Very skilled installer.

    Dang I cant believe the prices everyone pays. Unless you live in a super expensive area in CA or NY I can never imagine spending that much. Im in Raleigh NC and all my quotes were in the $375-$500 for all windows and a full back piece without the windshield. That includes higher end films.

    My tint is holding up perfectly. I recommend Earmark Car Audio on Valley Ridge Circle in Lewisville.
