Well i decided to get my windows tinted this past week. I mostly just wanted them to match the back. I took it in and tested the back windows and my back windows let in 24% light. So the closest we could get to it is the 20% 3M hybrid tint. After putting it on the fronts came out to 22%. which i pretty close. They persuaded me to a hybrid because it has a tanish look to it like the stock tint. The new carbon based material was blueish. If i wouldve put the Carbon on it not only wouldve been a different color but a alot darker because most of the time the 20% carbon comes out to be around 16%. So it woulda been darker. Heres some pics tell me wutcha think. the second pic is just of what my lights look like in the daytime off. and shes dirty

you should tint the windshield too.. it looks awsome, and cuts the glare a lot. i got the lightest tint, and you cant really tell unless you look for it, so the cops wont bother you.

I was quoted $100 to do the 2 windows on my access cab. It's not too bad but I don't know if that's an average price or not. They use all 3M stuff so letting us know that "20% 3M Hybrid" is a good match helps me out a lot. I plan on getting them done sometime before spring, no money to spend on myself right now.

Got all my windows tinted for $115.
That for all the windows and windshield.
I went for the real dark look tho - got 4% tints up front, put 10% on the rear stock tinted windows to match, and 35% on the windshield. It looks real nice with the black pearl.

Ya most any tint shop will give you "warranty for life" on the tints.

Got my two fronts for $45, they use Llumar which comes with a guarantee. Have it on two of my other vehicles and the tint still looks like new.

looks good! did you have the toyota tint on the front windows? i ordered it from the factory, and realized how light the front tint is only after delivery. can you tint over the exisiting tint so its darker?
