Is $472.00 for HO tinting in huntington beach a good quote??

Campbell Tinting (http://campbelltint.com) is offering me $472.00 for tinting with HO for rear windows and rear windshield; and $530.00 for tinting all 4 windows and rear tinting... Is this good price?? And how is Campbell tinting as such??

Thanks..

Doubt that's Huper Optik film.

If you run a search, you'll see that most members that have installed HO have paid around $500 for it. I got mine for $399 (including rear windows) after a little bargaining. However, you have to keep market conditions in mind. IMO, anyting below $500 is a good deal. Above $500 suggests that there might be some room for negotiation, but it would depend on market conditions.

I'm from HB.. I had 2 cars done by The Tint Pros (www.thetintpros.com) on Gothard, they do AWESOME work. Husband-and-wife business, they've been in the biz since 1979. Truly nice people and high-quality work. Can't remember what I paid but it was very reasonable.

On a side note, the best damned frame & alignment shop on the planet is right down the street from them - Dave's Frame & Alignment. Local tuners swear by Dave's and for good reason.. these guys know wtf they're doing. My HIGHEST recommendation!

That's what we were quoted for our 530i. I liked the 3M tint better. Did you feel the difference (heat) with the light box they had there?
The 3M was not metal tint and costs more than the HO. 3M Prestige line, I think they called it.

They quoted me the same price for HO. Also the lady said that the rear window will be two pieces and it would take 5 hours. Another place quoted me $400 for Madico Advanced Ceramic. How good is Madico window tint? have not herd of them before....

i think with Huper Optik there were only two authorized dealers in so cal. (there maybe more but thats the only two ive heard of) one is Song's auto tint in LA and the other is Perfect tint in HB.

i got mine done with perfect tint. HO 40 all around for 475. they even drove out to my house in the IE to do the tint. awesome guys and very nice work and BTW they did the back window in one piece. if you go with perfect tint Salvador is the owner, very nice guy.

Madico Advanced Ceramic is new in the market. So there are now 3 ceramic tints available: HO Stark/Ceramic, FormulaOne Pinnacle, and Madico Advanced Ceramic.
