Default Window Tinting Troubles

So i have been wanting to get my windows tinted since i bought the car and i know i can't tint worth a ***t, so i went around to some local places to see how much it would be to get it done, i went to 4 places and only one of the places will actually tint my car because of the back window they say... and the one place that will do it says that they will only do it if i pay a high price cuz its so hard to do... I really dont want to spend a lot but i really want it done.

has anyone else had this trouble? also how much did it cost you guys to get your car tinted?

I paid $200 for all the windows done on mine. $150 seems awfully cheap to me...

$150 is about right and they should do the driver and passenger windows for that price. are there some strange rules in MI? i don't see any reason why they are charging you that much. Are you asking for LIMO tint? my window were all done in FL for $125.

i can't believe that this place is charging so much... i thought maybe the price was they same for everyone here but damn i would get screwed over if i did that... this sucks, i might just have to do it myself that wouldn't look to well but it would be cheaper...
