I am out here in southern calif and I just bought an 07 accord with no tinted windows. I like the tinted windows. Do these after market shops do quality work? I dont want something that starts looking bad after a period of time. I will do some investigating with some shops but I also wanted input on here. Thanks

Ask a dealer who they use when a customer wants aftermarket tint included, they usually do good work.

FYI, if you bought a certified pre-owned from a new car dealer, they can usually roll that kind of stuff for free or very cheap into the deal.

I bought a CPO 15 passenger Ford van that had everything I wanted except the privacy glass, they had a shop tint all that glass (a very large job on a E-350 window van) for free just to make the deal. They did an outstanding job, looked factory.

Detail Wiz is a great tinting source. They do top notch professional work for a good value. They are worth a look.

Yes, most aftermarket shops do great work. But you do have to do your research or have someone recommend a certain shop to you that they've successfully used. A great place that I know of that does great car window tinting (http://detailwiz.com/car-window-tinting) is Detail Wiz.

I would say that most shops do good work. Just be sure the tint that is installed is a good brand and comes with a warranty.

I've heard a lot of mixed things about DetailWiz. Make sure you do your homework on the tinting specialist that you choose, and maybe get a few quotes before you make a final decision. If you do get several quotes make sure you don't automatically choose the lowest price, that can sometimes be an indication that they use lower-quality films. Best of luck!
