Any recommendations for a good window tinting operation in the Raleigh-Durham area?
I would suggest TVP (Clear Bra - 3M Paint Protection Film - Window Tinting | Serving Raleigh, NC Area). It is near the service center on westgate in Raleigh. I've been going there for years and the quality of the work is excellent. They specialize in high-end vehicles and custom tinting and vinyl.
A friend of mine recommended them as well. I'm sitting in their lobby right now while they do tint and clear bra on mine
I was going to update this thread once they were done and I had a chance to look at it.
I guess we ran into each other today and didn't realize it. Congrats again on the car. It's sharp.
How dark did you guys go? Did you do front and back as well? Do you mind posting pictures?
That was you? That's kinda funny .
They did Suntek CXP 45 on the sides and rear, plus the whole front clear bra (plus a the rear bumper and around the rear wheel wells). I think in person the window tint is a touch lighter than it looks in these photos, they're taken at an angle without a lot of backlight.
I definitely would recommend using these guys.
Looks nice! Thanks for the pics.
Same goes for my car.
Looks great! Turns out I know someone else who had some work done there. Good feedback all around!
Hard to tell in the pics. Did they tint the small triangular glass at the front of the side windows? Mine has some pretty heavy matrix patterns on it that make it seem like it would be impossible to tint. Does it look weird?
I couldn't get decent lighting to shoot a good picture of mine, but yes, they tinted those two little bits of glass as well. Blends in great with the rest of the windows.
I just got the tint completed at TVP. I also did the full hood, lights and fenders with the SunTek PPF to augment the factory paint armor.
They did a great job! Can't recommend Pete highly enough. I only wish I had a clue about the great work TVP does a couple of months ago, and I could have had them to all the PPF, gotten a higher quality product, and saved some money to boot! Oh well.
Can someone give me a ballpark figure on what the tinting cost?
SunTek film at TVP was $300 installed. The 3M Crystaline was more, but I thought it looked to "brown" compared to the SunTek film. Agree that Pete did a great job.
Thanks. Any other prices? How about for the paint protection?
It was ~$1800 for both the tint and paint protection film back in June. I don't remember the exact breakdown, the PPF was the bulk of the price (higher than Tesla's factory installed, but whole hood coverage and I think a better film).
It was $1800 from TVP for the Tint and for the Tesla equivalent PPF (plus full hood coverage) in December when I had mine done.
Also... TVP's film coverage includes the full hood AND the front fenders. Tesla's does not. Overall I think TVPs is a better deal than Tesla, as they cover a lot more surface area for a little more.
Thanks for the recommendations, I found this old forum off of my google search, I'll be getting the windows done here for my Model 3.
TVP is offering a partial bra for $850 and I'm considering it.
