Mr Tint in San Jose

Anyone in San Jose have their windows tinted here? Saw a E92 in their photo gallery. Are they any good? Thanks

I've had 3 of my cars tinted there including the M3. I don't have a lot of experience with different tint places, but I've always been happy with their work. My detailer also mentioned that they did a good job on my car.

they are too expensive. Call Tints R Us. - They are really good - Tell them your buddy got his e92 coupe wrapped for 200. They should honor that price. They use good product I went with the 28% tint but depending on color i would got 28 or 35.

I would go with Rocky Mountain Window Tint in Livermore. They have awesome yelp reviews. I took mine in last week. Matt the owner is the one that did the work on my car. Well worth the wait.

I have taken my other car there. He does great work and he's a great guy. But when I asked him how he handles the dot matrix, he said he uses vinyl. For me, that's not the look I want. Premeir can apply the tint over the matrix. How does Mr Tint handle the dot matrix?

I went to Mr Tint back in 2009 and he did an outstanding job with my 5 windows. It has been 3 years since and I haven't had any problems with mine.

Is it on the pricer end? Definitely. Would I go back? Yes.
