best place in GTA to tint car windows...

does anyone know where the best place is to tint your car windows?

Secondly, how much tint should I get? is 35% too dark at night? or should I go somewhere around 40%-50%? What type of tint material should I get? What's the average price of tinting windows?

Lots of questions since I know little about tinting windows.

audio heaven or autolinks in the gta. audio heaven is usually 199+tax regular and autolinks usually has a rfd discount..don't remember the price off top of head (search for thread). 35% imo is way too light, but it also depends on ur take on it.

35% is perfect for me.
I got 35% all around...
It has the perfect balance of privacy, and glare protection.
I can still see perfectly fine @ night.

20% is when it starts to get really dark.... Dark enough where people have trouble seeing inside your car. It also lowers visibility @ night.

I have 20% for my front windshield sun visor. When i look out of it at night, stuff looks really dark! So I can't imagine all my windows being 20%... it would probably suck... for me @ least. Some people put up with the darkness to look gangsta.
I kind of wished i did something super dark like 5% with my sun visor.

In my opinion... 35% is a good balance between privacy, sun protection, and good visibility.

Your car will still look good with 35%! My windows are noticably darker. You can tell its a "tinted" car.

If you've never had tint in a car before, go 35% all windows. Then you're next car, you'll want darker.


Audio heaven - tinted 3 of my cars. Always went back to Jeff. Also got Compustar Alarms from him as well.


Also, if you are ever stopped by Police for something else, 35% will have no problems, 20% will get them asking you for reasons.

35% is too light imho. If you have an auto dimming mirror, then go as dark as possible (not limo, the one above that) for the rear, and the next one up for the front.

35 for the front is fine.

From my understanding:

GTA North West
- Lazer Tint, Woodbridge - Lazertint.ca

Scarborough
- Auto-Links, Scarborough (same stuff as lazertint)

Markham
- Audio Heaven, Markham (16th & Leslie)

35 is not dark at all , Im getting sub 17% on my other car.

For all the people saying Audio heaven , they are good but they dont use the SolarGuard that they advertise that they do ....

...Op it would be good if you told us where you live because there are tint places all over the GTA

I live near yonge and finch area. I don't mind going anywhere. I just want someone who is competent with tinting windows and the tint won't form bubbles after a while.

I am really afraid of having difficulty seeing at night. what would be the difference in night driving between 50%, 38% and 35%?

What kind of tint materials should i get?

Man up. I've driven a limo tinted car....it's fine. At night, that auto dimming mirror DOES help though.

Uh...go darkest possible (not limo) in the back, the next shade up in the front.

USUALLY, that's 15-18/20-30 rear/front.

As for materials, ceramic tint, dyed tint, it's all good. Try the following brands of tint:
- Formula One tint
- Solar gard tint

Enjoy. Don't get fooled into taking something lighter, (35 all around) you'll be very upset with yourself and talk yourself into thinking "oh, it's fine"
