    How do you guys feel about the tints on the tails? I was thinking overlays of the red strip around but seeing the tints on N8INCHATT's I'm curious to how they look on WRBs.

    Go check out Lamin-x Protective Films - Protect with Style. That is where I got my tails. My guy said they were a major pain in the ass to put on though but they turned out quite well.

    I don't buy his claim. The installer has no liability on a tint install, as it could be installed for any number of legal reasons (medical comes to mind). Some installers do have clients sign waivers, but that is intended to keep the client from coming after them for the installation after they get tickers or the like. The owner of the vehicle is always the one responsible for the legality of its condition.

    Sounds more like a good reason to charge you more. I paid under $250 for the whole car (no the tails, though).

    +1 sounds like the installer knew you couldn't go anywhere else to get tint so he took advantage and added a bogus charge.

    Any tint below 4" on the front doors is illegal here in MI but they had no issue installing it as there was another tint shop right next door as well.

    I paid 300 for my ceramic on all but windshield. Metallic was 200

    I agree with you completely. It's simply a way for him to make more money. Guess I'm a sucker but damn, my car sure does look hot now!

    That'll look really good but I also think red overlays would also look good on the SWP.
