Just curious here....

I will be getting my 03xs tinted in the next several weeks & wanted to know where other Ontarians have gone to get theirs tinted?

I have always had good luck with Tint King on Midland Ave in Scarborough....any other recommendations or suggestions are appreciated & how much did you pay? :cool:

:bigok:

Yep, I would've suggested that same Tint King!

Grew up right around there, but unsure of any prices since I have yet to tint any of my windows.

Another place my parents refer people to, is the Tint King up in Markham.

The Tint King in Markham is out of business......I had my Lexus done there a while back & the guy screwed it up.....so much so I had his job & had the whole car redone......I'd never take a car of mine again to that location anyway if it was still in business.

The one in Scarborough I have never had any problems.....should have did that to begin with for my Lexus......I won't make the same mistake twice though. :)

I also want either 3M or Llumar brand scratch resistant film. :cool:

I'm more from the ottawa region, but for me, I called every shop trying to find someone that would do 20% all around. It wasn't easy.

That's the 20% (medium shade) I will be doing on my 03 XS (I usually offer to sign a waiver form or something so not to make the tint shop liable). I think the same shade all round looks the best myself. :cool:

I got mine done at a local place called "Cruiser Division." They actually outfit all the Police and Sheriff cars here locally, but also do window tinting on the cheap.

Yup, I made a mistake to take my Lexus there....only reason why is because it was closer to my home than the Scarborough location.....I can just say it's worth the extra 15min drive for a great job. :)

We Cdns need tinted windows? Well if you say so, but think I will leave mine stock, though the milage I put on my cage in the summer time is very small as most of my milage is on my m/cs. Cold November to even now in March that is the prime time I will use my Forester. Well groceries, 8L containers of water & such is one of the others uses of the vehicle. Sorry, but just kidding about the tinting only I could not resist it.

Sort of like all the m/c riders on the boards asking what sort of system they can put on their bikes for more noise & possibly power when for yrs all I have used is stock exhaust systems. I have no answer for the glare of the early morning sun on their full face helmets for it is just something we suffer & have tied dark to light smoked, but keep on going back to clear helmet visor. So yes if you are under the assumption that the m/cs are not with stock exhaust systems there is a 75% chance you are correct.

Any reason you're not going straight to the Midland Ave. Tint King?
Wanted to ask members if they recommend any other places that I can add to my short list first.......but it's sounds like the Midland ave Tint King is the best out there in my area. :)

Can you pass on his name and location. I can use someone down here for some tint work.
