Other places quoted me $195 just for the sides and rear and an extra $150 for the windshield. Don't get hustled !!! This place gave me exactly what I wanted and wasn't pushy and didn't try to upsell me on other products... Also, they all have their cars parked in the lot to use as examples to show customers and they let you watch and wait for other cars to get done if you want to see how the other cars turn out. Hope this helps ... Good luck !!!
That is a very good price. My guy here in San Diego wants 185 for the back 5 windows and 80 for windshield.

I dont know if I got a good deal. I went with Lumars Formula One "Pinnacle" line with 15% all around (except front windshield).Pinnacle is the ceramic tint for $320 cash from Steve's Professional Tint in Upland. From what I understand it doesnt get any better then Formula One. I would deffinetly reccomend this shop.

Just had some eibach's springs installed at Evasive Motorsports for $120. They seem to be a pretty cool tuner install shop.. I would recommend them.

Highly recommended! Wayne and his crew do very high quality work at very reasonable prices. I've referred dozens of friends to him and all have been very happy. I've had everything from lip kits and small repairs to a complete color change inside/out.

my friends' shop in Brea

they mostly deal with euro's but can get almost anything and do lots of custom fabrications. my bro Duy built a custom turbo kit for a G35c which put out over 1,000hp.

i got all my mods/tires/installs from them since 2005.

ask for Duy or Brad

I dont have a 370z yet (july cant come soon enough) but for audio I go to Sound Diego have been going to them for 8 years now they always do a good job and throw in little things all the time when they do my installs although I wouldn't use them for tinting. Just don't judge it by its looks.

Cyrus is a great guy. He did the alignment carefully. He made sure my spec came out 100% perfect. Always double checking.

He can adjust your car to what you want. He explains to you everything.

This place is lower car friendly.

Price is reasonable. And no 2 weeks waiting list like west end alignment.

I like Cal-tints and Tire Central as well. Went there to get my previous car tinted, removed, and re-tinted. The appointments were pretty spaced apart but Peter (the owner of Cal-Tints) recognized me and reduced the price for me! Absolutely recommend! Gonna go in Monday to get my new 370Z tinted

Picked up some Falkens for my previous car at Tire Central as well. Best price around, checked 5-6 highly recommended locals. I'll definately go there for my tire needs on the Z.

I was wondering if Limited Edition does Matte Black wraps. I wanted to get my fangs and rear splitter wrapped in Matte black. Any idea how much that would be?

Thanks for this rec. Went to Cyrus, he walked me through the whole alignment, test drove the car after to make sure it was good, the cars feels great now, straight as an arrow. I was able to work with him to get the negative camber dialed in and he was pretty aware of what will effect my tires and what I should be good with. He gave me tips throughout and a print out of the before and after. Only issue is that he's cash only but he's very fairly priced for the knowledge that he brings to the table. I wanna describe him as like a samurai except instead of swords the man does alignment.
