Does anyone have a suggestion for window tinting either Brevard or Orlando?

Highway HiFi on Wickham just replaced the tinting on my wife's 2008 Cooper after Melbourne's finest decided the windows were too dark. They did a good job for about $120. I think they quoted $160 for my daughter's 2007 Cooper to add the tinting from scratch.

did you get it done?

Happy?

I'm looking at Explicit Customs as they can do it at their Suntree location, much closer to home ... I believe they both sell the same film and use the same cutting machine . . .

Only the driver's a pass' side glass needed to be changed right? The other stuff can be much darker . . . The back windows and hatch .. from what I'm reading on the web ...

But I'm asking not saying ... thinking of tint for the first time on my new car and don't want to run afoul of the law. As I understand FL law an installer is supposed to provide a sticker that identifies the installer and certifies 'legal tint'.

That is how the guy at highway explained to us. If you can't open the window (like the back widows), then they can't check which is why it can be darker.
