I took delivery of my Model 3 this past Friday, the first day of deliveries in the LA area. Absolutely love the car. I've never had tinted windows before, but I decided I had to this time around -- there's so much glass on this car -- and I came across Window Tintz, about ten minutes from downtown. I have to say, I know I sound like I'm a relative or a friend or something (I'm not), but they really impressed me: the price was very reasonable, the owner is a huge Tesla fan -- which I personally love -- and the install guys were exceptionally nice and capable; even watching them talk to other customers while I was there, I could see how well they know their products and listen to their customers.

We went with a 90% (nearly clear) tint on both the front windshield and rear glass, mostly for heat reduction, and a 70% on the sides, which keeps the heat out and also gives a nice, subtle tint that's legal in CA and won't ever be confused with a limo. Most importantly, they did a flawless job; the tint is subtle but significant. I'm very happy I had it done, I'm very happy I went to Window Tintz, I'm giving my wholehearted recommendation.

you might want to read the CA regulation. The 30% is only legal if you have a “doctor’s note”. seriously. legal is 88%.

I've read the CA regulation. It allows for a non-reflective tint at the top of the windshield (I went with a nearly clear 90% tint that you can't see at all), 70% on the front sides (I went with 70), any darkness on the back sides (I kept it subtle at 70), and any darkness on the rear window (I kept it light at 90 to maintain visibility). I'm good, thanks. :)

did you do the whole back window? and you are talking about the 7400 S Western Ave location correct?

Thanks!

Are you going to the same place? I had a hard time finding a place that would do the whole back and went with the 15 on the back because that was pretty much the only option they had at that price.

I called the places mentioned in the thread. And, WOW they’re expensive. I asked Tintz for a quote, he told me $160 total, and as soon as I mentioned it’s Tesla, the price went up to $400.

Every place I called said they recommend ceramic. And even if you went with standard, it would cost $300+

So I decided to do a bit of research on what is the difference between ceramic and standard.
- your windows already have heat rejection
- the standard film lasts 4-5 years and the ceramic lasts 6-7 years

So I called a place near my house, and they quoted me $100 total. Naturally I got a bit surprised at the price difference. And the guy was pretty honest, he’s like the reason you got those quotes is because you have a Tesla

Naturally, they have all the guarantees as the other places. They’ll replace any bubbling and purpling.

Anyway, long story short, here is the place:

Pro Tint - $100 for all windows & back
900 S. Central Ave.
Glendale, CA 91204

That $100 film will fade out quick.... We only do Ceramic at my shop and its upwards of $950 to do the car if you want that rear window done in one piece. The average cost for a good tint job with good film should between $850-$1400 to do the full car with windshield included on the higher end.
