could you please comment if you tint your windows and how much it costed? Any cons?
My guy is asking for $150 in NH good reviews.
Is that $150 per window? Realistically, to do the whole car (but not the windshield) you should be paying between $600 and $900 for quality work and quality materials.
By the way, please drop your duplicate post.
Thanks. No that is for all but winshield. Sorry i cant fig out how to delete the other post.
I recommend you check out your guy's work with other customers, especially customers who have had theirs for a while. $150 is below the cost of good quality materials that last!

Does anyone know if, when tinting the rear hatch window, it is necessary or advisable to cut around the defroster lines? Thanks.
hcwhy good question i also want the answer.
Recently tinted all 4 windows and rear window for $275. Guaranteed for 10 years.l and it looks awesome. I went to this particular place based on a referral from a fellow model S owner I met at the carwash. Personal references are usually smart choices.
They don't cut for the defroster.
I did all windows except for the front windshield for $700 cash. I am in the LA area. Got recommendation from the forum. I agree with @buickguy that $150 is too low. Also what kind of film are they using? I could have paid like 275 but the film was not the one I wanted.
Good tint you dont need to cut around defrost lines. Mine cost 900 or so for photosync, All windows. House of tint in visalia, CA. I highly recommend this guy if you are around there. Tons of posts on tinting already so just do a quick search. Photosync is great but in NH you dont need it. Just get a good crystalline or equiv and you should be fine. Tinting the car makes it look even sweeter.$150 for all windows except windshield is super cheap, even for NH, imo, so make sure he is using some decent film.
Apparently he uses madico film. Is that so bad?
Car in FL since Oct 2012. MS vin 0002xx, Tinted with Huber Optik film for $300, 5 windows and vent windows.....Couldn't be happier. Done by "Suntamers" in Bonita Springs.
$300 for all except the front here in Los Angeles as well.
I spent maybe 12 hours looking at several sides of this issue. I reached the conclusion that 3M Crystalline is the best product in terms of preventing heat from entering the cabin. That became an issue when we took our first road trip - we have two small dogs and they ride in a crate which we put in back. I do not like the dark, private screened in appearance of some tints. So I opted for the Crystalline 20 - I know it is there. But the casual observer will not see it. I was amazed how effective the product worked. 3M has an authorized installer function - which I used. Then I consulted local Tesla owners to choose between a couple I had pre-selected. Got four doors and hatchback (nothing on front windshield) for $465.
I had Llumar tint in stalled on all 4 windows, rear hatch and windshield for $400.
