the cheap tint will fade purple. Make sure you see examples of their work and quality

What percent are you having them tinted? Make sure they use Llumar or 3M tint. Those are the best brands, and offer lifetime warranties. Johnsons upper echelon of tint is lifetime as well, but good luck getting them to honor it.

I have had Johnson tint since 04 with no problems. Seems to take the daily wear pretty well. However it will not hold up to an 8 YO boy that is inquisitive.

It really helps if the Tinter you use knows what he or she is doing. It really is an art form

I wasn't saying that the film itself is bad, I was saying the company sucks ***. I have Johnson on my wife'* car and it looks great. I also had it on my Camaro and tried to have it replaced under warranty. It was the legal limit for the state, but Johnson said that it wasn't and wouldn't pay to replace it. Luckly I knew the tinter and re-tinted my car for me for free.
