I was just wonder where everyone is getting their Model 3 tinted at? Prefer if its around the East LA / San Gabriel Valley.
Can you list where, how much, what type, were they able to do the rear windshield in one or two piece? Thanks in advance

I've had great experiences with Signature Glass in Costa Mesa. It's not a bad drive from LA at all. They have a no questions asked guarantee. I had my Audi window smashed a month or so ago and went there to have the replacement re-tinted and they did it for free. While I was there I talked to them about the M3 tinting and I don't want to quote what they told me (because I forget the price) but it sounded reasonable. I plan to take mine there when I get it.

Thanks for the suggestion. I just messaged them for a quote.

i have a place that did a great job on the tint, but some water got underneath the rear windshield onto the rear brake light area and I'm asking them to see if they can address this minor issue. Besides that the tint was great. I can't full endorse until this is resolved. I'm messaged them and will update/recommend if they can resolve my minor concern.

Agree! Extreme Autowerks for the best Window Film in the industry, Spectra Photosync.

Thanks for posting the updated address info. I heard the move to Brea was imminent but didn’t know exactly when they’d be done.

Looking forward to seeing the new shop - need to get over there to have the front pano panel done/tinted to cut glare. Having the windshield done w/ Photosync 75 (essentially invisible, with 35 for the rest) did wonders to cut glare. I’ll go a tad darker for the pano :).

Would a couple of you mind posting price ranges for the quotes you received? You don’t have to name the shop if you prefer, just would like to know a ballpark. Thanks!

I paid $695 for 3M crystalline 70 all the way around minus my winshield. They did the rear glass as one piece. Had it done by Autoskinz in Valencia.

That photosync was quoted $$$ by extreme autoworks, but maybe that film is really that much better/more expensive. Ballpark for the Model 3, not including the windshield id say it's around what Az Rael paid. I would recommend Window Tintz in LA, which is where I went. They have transparent pricing on their "pricing wall" there. The owner David/Eric are very nice. My installer at the location Danny was great.

As I understand it, Prestige Films does not allow photosync installers to be within 50mi of one another. If correct, that is a much larger radius than is required by 3M, resulting in less price competition between (and higher prices for) photsync installs. I'm not saying that photosync isn't better than Crystalline - it might well be - but the pricing of it may be driven more by this supply/demand dynamic than quality.

Here are some videos showing what Spectra Photosync looks like on different colors:

Photosync 75 windshield + 45 on sides and rear - Gray Model 3

Photosync 75 windshield + 35 on sides and rear - White Model 3

Photosync 75 windshield + 35 on sides and rear - interior video

Another product that everyone should consider is Ceraluxe Quantum Ceramic, which is a 100% pure nano-ceramic film (not all ceramic films are made equal). And this film blocks out almost as much as Photosync.
