I would never do tint on my own - not worth the effort to save minimal $$ and end up not doing it properly.

Don't do it yourself or use shit tint material - you'll regret it.
Expect to pay $260-300 for professional work.

I tried to do it on my old g35. The tint is not as forgiving as vinyl and is difficult to work with. I would just go the professional route.

Pay the $250-300 and get it professionally done. Not worth messing with it if you don't know how do it right.

My lowest quote for quality ceramics was 325. My subaru with the same tints cost 210 and it has many more windows. I just blame it on bimmer tax here in the Midwest.

Auto-links in Scarborough will charge you anywhere from $260-$300. Tell them you're from the BMW group or just mention that Nelio sent you.

Awesome guys and amazing quality work.

Ask for Steve or John.
