$100 tints in NJ?
 
I heard theres a legitimate place in NJ that tint all 5 windows for $100, whatever percentage you want. And I heard their work is top notch.
Anyone know a place like this in central jersey? Around Edison area?
And would they guarantee their work in terms of bubbling? and tearing?

thanks

P.S. this will be my last mod... I hope.

Cheap tint usually means that, cheap quality tint. It'll either fade quickly like 2-3 years and won't be as anti-reflective (some cheap tint just darkens the window and you can see straight through, whereas 3M and Llumar will blur out so you can't see inside easily).

Eugene, Tropic Tint is in Union...same building as IMG and they do great work.

It's not $100, though. They advertise that they 'fix $100 tint jobs'!

They just got in some new ceramic tint...forget the name...but it's got some crazy warranty, maybe lifetime...though it costs twice what 3M does. Anyway, Alex and Frankie do great work. IDK pricing on e36, but the coupe does cost less than sedan.

It does all the bmw dealers cars around the area...they're really good...and you know I wouldn't kid you!

Your probably right. I have heard good things about "this place". I think 2-3 years is sufficient enough for me.

And doug,
Union is a drive for me. I believe tinting would be cheaper for a sedan because the coupe windows are difficult to do since they need to cut around the hole where the back windows open. Please ask

I'll take you to that place in Newark. Well next time you wanna come up here. They charge 100 bucks

dmax 10-13-2012 08:52 PM

Eugene, I have asked before...coupe is cheaper than sedan...two fewer windows makes a difference.

Anyway, sounds like Ray has a guy for you too.

I wish I could tint, but I like cleaning windows too much! Ha!

Theres like 5 places in elizabeth that do good jobs

Sent from my EVO using Bimmer App

It's called "pro-tint" Its located in newark or edison. Theres two locations. I got my windows done for $100 bucks and honestly, I regret it. I've had them for about 3 years and the rear window is purple and they all look like 35% when I initially got 20%. I'm going to a reputable shop and getting 5% real soon.

The fcuk? Purple? I want 35% though

///Mostarac 10-13-2012 10:48 PM

yeah it turns purple if the tint is cheap

Sofresh2Clean 10-14-2012 01:32 AM

You could get the tint that lasts 2-3 years only problem is the rear window is a pita to remove since it has those defroster lines... I plan to get 5% in about two years or so.........

k41 10-14-2012 12:05 PM

i paid about 125 full tints beside windshield 35%

some people says my tints looks great

he left new jersey though...

dmax 10-14-2012 12:14 PM

So I hear removing bad tints to do it over costs another $100...so chose wisely guys.

zhenkaaaM3 10-14-2012 01:19 PM

Tints are easy to remove except the back one. So what is a good number to pay and who does a good job?

dreamteam1000000 10-15-2012 02:45 PM

pro tinting in elizabeth nj 107 any percentage great work get all my cars done by them

///Mostarac 10-15-2012 05:36 PM

I have to remove my own tint because it's faded and purpleish. Definitely wish I spent the extra 100 or 50 bucks on quality tint. Wouldnt be going back or in this predicament.

Mostarac says pro tint is where he got it done and it becomes purple and faded.

they do a good job. They offer other kinds of tint, I just got the cheapest one. I'd go to pro-tint but get the $170+ tint

zhenkaaaM3 10-16-2012 10:04 AM

Which pro tint is better, in elizabeth or newark? And do i need to setup an appointment? Or its straight walk ins

wasp9166 10-16-2012 10:57 AM
