I would totally take them back and bite the bullet on this one and have them painted. A lot better looking. Vinyl is gross and looks so cheap

I just had my windows tinted today at Sunset Tint in Cranston.....they also do whole car graphics....I'm sure they could do it..... it's worth giving them a call for a price... I'm very happy with the quality of their work and I'm wicked picky.

how was the price for the tint ...still wanna get mine tinted out too
and thanks for the tip gonna call for sure...

Save $300 and install them yourself. I did that on my 2010 and it turned out decent. No one ever noticed the very minor flaws in my install. There are tons of YouTube videos showing exactly how to do it. I wouldn't pay $300 for no more than 3 hours work.

for that price plus the cost of your vinyl, you probably could have had them painted on and had it look 100x better

just sayin'..............

So the labor looks about the same price as the stripes? That sucks, I would shop around if you don't want to give it a try and install them yourself. A lot of careless leaning against your car goes on when certain places install those though so beware.

Send them back and buy a kit from us at Night Shades. The vinyl we sell allows you to install them yourself headache free!

I paid $225 for the back and side windows.... 40% tint on top of the factory 70% brought me to the legal Mass limit. Look really nice....The also offer a AAA discount of 15% if you're a member.

There is a place on Robeson Street in Fall River, its called Twin City Electronics or something. I had mine done there it was $260 for side windows, the two small quarter glass windows, and the rear windshield, i am very happy with the install, i also had a strip on the front windhield but since i had to replace my windhsield i have not put it back on.

I put my stripes on myself, but I used GTS Tint Pro in Fairhaven to do my tint. They did a great job, they even tinted the area around the third brake light and a strip along the top of the windshield for $180(I haven't taken any pics since then). I'd definitely use them again and I'm pretty sure they do decals too.
