Ohh..thats amazing price. I have been debating myself whether I tint my windows or not. Some friends who have their car tinted regret it due to visibility at night.

If you end up going for it let me know how is their work/tint used

Nah. I'm in two minds. It's an hour away and I'm sure the tint they use is probably not the best. But on the other hand $139 is $200 cheaper than what most places charge.

So... I dunno.

Just spoke to Lance at Protector Tint. He was very professional and took the time to answer all my questions.

The Groupon is ending today, but he will honor the Groupon price for the next month or so and as long as you mention it when you call ahead to book a time.

As of right now I'll probably go in a few weeks and get the tint done.

I might do this too. $139 for entire car is pretty damn good.

Did he mention what kind of tints he uses?

For the price of 139 it is pretty good deal man.

I don't know. But I'm 90% sure I'm gonna get it done. Price is too good to pass up.

On their web it says lifetime warranty. I think every shop says that but after sometime they don't honor it.

With the current 20% off on all groupon deals, this becomes about $75...

I previously bought it at the original price and then just purchased it at the discounted price

Going to get the tint done tomorrow. I will post pics and details of my experience at Protector Tint. So far so good as Lance is honoring the Groupon price.
