Window Tinting Ceramic in the Bay Area


Apr 21, 2019

I'm looking to have the M3 tinted, entire care and came across Mr. Tint in Santa Clara. They quoted me $925 for Xpel Prime XR+ for four windows and rear windshield (one piece that goes until the window ends). So that leaves 2 glass panels that aren't tinted, the "sunroof" panel and the windshield. I spent a bit of time talking about the different ceramic tints and I feel it's so hot inside and have to turn the AC full blast constantly. Adding those two panels would be 325-375 each, I don't remember the exact number they quoted.

Compromise: Get Solargard Vortex IR for the four doors and rear and sunroof, and using Xpel Prime XR+ for the front windshield since that's where the sun beats down directly, the most.

What do you guys think? And the final price was 1300-1400. It sounds insane to spend that much for window tinting, but I've seen a few youtube vids and it's not that far off from the quoted prices for ceramic tint.

Don't have much to comment on, other than to say that the sun beats down directly on the windshield only when you're driving into the sun, right? I still think windshield is worth it though.
