I'm going to have to check him out next weekend. Thanks for the referral.

And yes, you can blame my extended abscence on my new 400+hp monster.

2GS still my everyday car right now. Still one of the best cars I've ever bought. Getting my Tacoma back upto speed to make that the everyday truck. But the GS will still be in the family. Giving it to my dad, finally convinced him to give up his Cougar.

dabigkaluna, you might find some tint shops are slightly cheaper but tintzone did a wonderful job on phml's ride. i've seen it in person and love it! i rarely park outdoor and drive at nights all the time. still can't decide tint or not.

Tintzone sounds good to me quality is an issue price really is not. As far as tinting, you could always go without ceramic tint and just go with a regular film, if it's just looks you want.

you are right. quality is the main thing for something like tint. i've sat in cars w/decent tints but still bothered me. the main concern i have is cops. you can barely see them even w/o tints nowadays. those friggin' lights are just like regular roof racks on suv. hard to spot them especially i have fairly strong astigmatism. i like the look w/tint, though. that's why it's a tough decision for me. unless i drive like one granny .

That's true. I think tint at 35% won't be too bad. That's what I'm going with.

The Blue Bomber - my 2014 ML350
Aloha everyone,

I will be picking up my ML350 in January and would like to know if the factory tint on the rear windows is 35%. I am planning on tinting the front windows to match the rear, assuming the far windows are already at 35%. Also, how much did Tint Zone charge?

Thanks in advance for any and all responses
