Ceramic Window Tinting (Subaru Impreza Hatchback)

Hello fellow RFDers,

Currently looking into ceramic window tinting for my 2013 Subaru Impreza Hatchback
(FYI: It's in great overall condition with 100K on it; won't be parting with it anytime soon).

Called 3 places with good Google Reviews (50-75 reviews) in the Vaughan and Richmond Hill area; $320, $350 and $400.
They're exactly the same package (all side/corner/rear windows); blocks 99% UV & sunlight heat reduction.

Wondering if these prices are reasonable for the industry and if any one has any information they'd like to share on this topic.
Any information or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Edit: Why did I get down voted? is it something I wrote? is there a genuine reason?
I've noticed a trend of threads getting less helpful posts/responses when it gets down voted.

Edit2: Thanks for all those that replied; though the down votes continue to confuse me. I'll take my questions/advice else where in the future. RFD community has changed.

I have taken 2 cars to Elevated Auto in Markham - theres an RFD group buy that I think is still ongoing - see link for exact pricing, I believe he charges 350 for both sides + rear windows.

$400 is high. $350 - $375 is the general consensus (for ceramic)

I think I got for $300 + taxes last BF special for Xpel ceramic xr non plus. Plus was double the price because he seldomly uses it.

Why are you more concern about downvotes than the help you are getting here from members?

Because if it's getting downvoted; people with information may not bother clicking on the thread to give advice.
Furthermore, I am genuinely confused why it got down voted twice.

I am speaking from personal experience on RFD over the years.

PS: Do you click/comment more often on downvoted or upvoted threads?

Can't comment on Xpel but I have the Llumar FormulaOne Pinnacle tints on my car and I'm very satisfied.

Just make sure you get some form of ceramic tints because the heat rejection properties are much better. $325-$400 seems to be a fair price for ceramic tints.

Thanks for all those that replied; though the down votes continue to confuse me.
I was seeking advice for a legitimate upgrade and unfortunately this is how it plays out.

I'll take my questions/advice else where in the future as the RFD community has changed.

It's because you posted this to the wrong forum. Ask the moderator to move this to "Automotive". I didn't downvote your post btw.

This was posted in the auto forums. I expired the thread due to downvotes and that moved it here for some reason. Please don't assume. Thanks.

The downvotes are probably because it's a very common question that's easily searched.
