I've used them on two of my cars and three of my uncles. Quality work, and I've actually been complemented by some random dude in a parking lot on it. 20% on my b7 A4 was about $250.

if youre willing to drive a little east ive used precision tinting (commack) on several cars with great results. $180 to do an avant, not positive on sedans but would assume its less. if you need more info shoot me a pm.

Haven't used either of these but they seem to have good reputations.

Has anyone had police issues with their tints and if so, what % are you running?

In one of my cars a cop pulled me over just to tell me that the tint was illegal, to which I replied, "really?". He just told me to take it off, and left.

If he wrote you, its 50 dollars a window, but if he doesn't use a tint meter you can beat the summons.

Just get someone to write a receipt from a shop saying it was removed an take it to the judge. Done deal. I have 18% and have not been pulled over yet.

I thought tints were illegal in NYC. If it's still legal what is the legal limit ?

70% driver and up foward. Anything you want from behind driver back.

Technically, this is not true. No person shall have operate any motor vehicle: "if it is classified as a station wagon, sedan, hardtop, coupe, hatchback or convertible and any rear side window has a light transmittance of less than seventy percent." NY VTL 375.

Incidentally, I posted a thread under General Car Talk here: NY Tint & Inspection - proposed change to the law (http://www.audizine.com/forum/showthread.php/501227-NY-Tint-amp-Inspection-proposed-change-to-the-law). Recommended reading for anyone from NY. Bad news on the horizon.
