    Anyone have recommendations for a shop here? Looking to do 8-10 windows in 3M color stable or something similar in quality in the back, and 3M crystalline or something similar in heat reduction (Air Blue) in the front to use 80-90% front. I thought $300-400 range was possible given what I've seen on the forums in California over the years.

    Yes to tint the Prius it’s $179, to add the windshield it’s an additional $89 (Reg $129)

    Would you like to schedule an appointment?

    Thats for 3m tint. I assume another.. 40 for air blue.. The pinnacle tint costs more.

    Which 3M product is that? That's almost half the price of my quote for Color Stable, and using a computer cut out. It's about the same as what I was quoted for 3M dye tint for only back windows (6 windows) at the same shop.

    Give them a call and you'll find out. Pretty sure it's their basic 3m tint, which i used. It's essentially a colorstable with 1-2% less heat rejection from when i last checked.

    Thanks, but I'd like to stick with something guaranteed to never fade purple. Color Stable is warrantied against that, not sure about the dyed ones (FX HP specifically is not). The Color Stable is a little better at heat rejection too, but not much. It is noticeable when using their store heat lamp demo.

    Any thoughts here on Madico Wincos? I like that they go all the way up to 90%, and the 70% still has very high TSER (>60%), and also goes as low as 10% TVL. Price doesn't seem to be as bad the Crystalline. Suntek CXP also can do this, but heard about easily scratching, which is why some places won't carry it. Not sure about the warranties for either, other than no color fading.
