There are a few factors that determine the price of a tint job. Looks like Grafh had LuLu film installed which is one of the best films on the market today. All films are not equal.

You also need to look at the experience level of the Tinter doing the work. Experience counts and you want a good Tinter doing the work. There are less or no problems with someone that knows what they are doing.

Another factor is how clean your car is when you take it into the Tinter. If he does not have to vacuum out the car or clean a lot of crud off the windows then there is less prep time for your car and the cost is less.

Tinting is one job that you usually get what you pay for.

I paid $170 for the tint on my Bonny and I thought I received a fair price.

Man, o well $300 was still worth it.

Yeah I had a tinter do it, as far as I heard and seen, the place is the best place to go in Minnesota. Lifetime warranty to boot.

I was quoted $150 by a place in town. Luckily, though, my uncle does all that stuff, so all I have to buy is the tint.

Also you have two extra windows that the 2K Bonnys do not have. The cost is in line for a good tint job with quality film. Llumar is a really good film.

I think you and I have identical cars. (Mine'* a 97.)

I'm planning on getting my rear door and back window tinted for this summer. Here in CA it cost $200 for my wife'* GP, I think it will be similar for my Bonneville. (20% tint.)

I've had my back seat and rear deck trim out for a project a couple years ago, where I covered the entire rear deck in Dynamat, and I recognized then, that the seat and deck trim would need to be out when I go for tinting. I was planning on removing them before even going to the tint place.

I spy mudflaps on your Bonne. Were they made for a Bonneville, or are they auto-store generics?

They had to remove the back seat when they did the back window on mine, it didn't take them to long to do it though.

The mudflaps are original from factory. I don't know if the pics show it, but they say "Bonneville" on them.

A bit of a long over due bump, but I received an early Christmas Gift.

Sirius Radio.

Figured we needed some more satellite radio images around here for us Bonne owners that have the consul shifter. I've seen some nice set ups for other models, but nothing work for my car.

I went to Best Buy and picked up a bracketon vehicle mount, and found it fit nicely between the radio panel and the lighter panel, no drilling, no screws.

Sorry for the pic, took to with my cellphone. I'll post some more pics tomorrow night, or the radio, and my finished (well for now), interior neons.

Hmm....I thought Sirius wasn't going to be around after December. I know that the equipment was to be cross-compatible.

You might be right, they are merging with XM. Don't know what they are going to be after the merger.
