$330 is about what you would expect to pay, to have a shop do it, however ring a few mobile tinters, and you should find it's a lot cheaper..I had mine done for $220, i think it was, but some are as low as $160-180...As far as darkness level, i went for 5%, i would never pay for that 35%legal crap, it's about as useful as flipping down your sun visor..5% is good, pretty dark at night, but you get used to it pretty quick.. If your really keen to go super dark, some places make a 2% tint...

And there's different types of film too obviously, i went for the metal film, but i dont really think it suits, i think the dye based film, suits older cars better, and the metal tint being more suited to a modern car....Anyways that's just my opinion, i'll try and throw up a picture of what my tint looks like..

I've got 17.5%. Can get it for a sedan down here in melbourne for $265 from memory. Personally i think 17.5% is dark enough for most people, 5% is really dark and not needed so much. If you get a layer of 17.5% now and then 5% later it works out to be like 3% tint! I'm thinking about doing that in future. But if your on your P's then definatly dont go 5% unless you want to end up in defect land.

Actually, that topic is pretty good showing you many different tints. Also, so you know the 15% tint is actually 17.5% but people call it 15% because there is really not much of a difference at all between them to the naked eye.

Don't know what % it is but I've had Tint-a-car's "formula 1" on a couple of commodores and it has a 25 year warranty. Midnight express is the darkest legal that they do but only has 10 year warranty- what the? The bloke showed me the samples and like he said there is stuff all difference between the two but he used f1 on his car. I know my car would be lucky to last 25 years but i suppose f1 is better quality.

To add to what VYMAD said, Tint Professor offer a lifetime warranty on all vehicle tints [not sure about home tints]. That is for whatever percent and even metallic tints [designed for black cars].
