    A few places got back to me on prices so I just wanted to update with the best prices I received so far.

    I got my 3 tinted at Ray's Auto Salon in Bolton. The pricing is the best I've found yet for a one piece rear and side windows. They use the Xpel XR films.

    Pretty sure Audio Heaven doesn't want to touch Model 3s. They can't tint the rear glass in one piece and I believe have told customers they can't offer tint services for the 3.

    I went with Inception Auto Detailing, really wanted a good quality tint like Xpel.

    There was a few minor issues with the installation with dust which they addressed for the most part. For the price I can’t complain too much.

    Any issue needed to be reworked ? How long they took to finish the job ? Great if you can post some pictures?

    Anyone tinted the windshield too ? Inception Auto asked for $150 more to tint the windshield with 70% film. Is it worth or not ?

    I'd like to tint the windshield but everything I've read recently says that you're not allowed to. I've also read max 70% on the front side windows. Perhaps this is a grey area up to officer's discretion.

    I had the front windshield done on my S. I was advised (prior to install/consent) about water getting into the dash during the install. Precautions were taken as best as possible with wicking rope at the front of the dash. No post-install issues in my case. Does it make a difference? Absolutely. Heat in the summer is now a non-issue - the a/c doesn't run nearly as hard and I can really tell the difference. Went with Photosync.
