I've had tint work done by L.A. Tint in Sterling...I think they have a few other locations. They use Formula One tint--from the classic stuff that turns purple (ouch), to the metallic tints and also a ceramic based stuff. I believe the price for the metallic on a 4-door was like $289ish, though it would be a little less on a coupe (because the sedan has a 2-piece application on the rear door windows). Anyway, the work they did looked great.

I second L.A. Tint. They also use a Tint-Tech machine which cuts the film on a table to the exact pattern needed prior to application. Eliminates the old method of stick-it-on then cutting excess free-hand.

Don't get metallic or even semi-metallic if you care for AM...
