Recently had my IS250 tinted with Airblue/Air80, went through Elite Window Tinting. My opinion is GO WITH SOMEONE ELSE.

I called to report some bubbling and a large amount of dust particles in the window tint. When he got here I told him I want it redone since its bubbling. He declined my offer and told me, "tint will not satisfy me, there will also be lint and dust particles. I told him its BUBBLING but he disregard what i have said. He then tells me that all cars are like that and i will not find another shop that will have dust free tint ( i know that already but this was severe like a bad cloth was used to clean). He then assumed that i do not park my car in the sun because the tint was not fully dried....I work 6-4 and stuck in traffic for an hr in the sun. It's really funny how when they're doing your tint they are really friendly...but when something happens they are in B***c mode.

WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!

Campbell Window Film does great work. It's off of Gothard St. in Huntington beach. Previous had bad experience with another tint shop. Did some research and called a few places. Most places either didn't want to answer my questions over the phone or they just told me to come in. BUT!! Sung at Campbell Film was awesome.

Great customer service, CHECK!
Great Price, CHECK!
Super clean shop, CHECK!

He answered all of my questions on the phone and provided more information when i got there. Never once rushed me and made me feel like a friend trying to figure out which tint to get.

16321 Gothard St. Suite A
Huntington Beach, Ca 92647
714-375-7131

Ask for Sung or Marion. Tell them you are from Club Lexus. They will definitely hook you up.

Regular prices.
3M FX Premium Films $249.99
3M Color Stable Films $329.99

Just got my car done at California Tint...

The line is rediculous I was there at 7:30 to be one of the first cars...

I have gotten many of my cars done there and the experience is always a good one...

Default Tint shop Recommendation in SVG

Been Looking for a tint shop for my IS.

Went to California Tint (on Rosemead Blvd.). The front driver side window had a couple of bubbles and one with a debris. So I'm not too keen on returning to them.

Any other recommendations for a shop in SVG? One that will take the time and do it right. A shop that has been around for a bit...want to make sure they are around for awhile in case I need warranty.

Looking to get a clear ceramic film for the windshield to cut down on the heat.

Saw this shop with some good reviews on yelp. Anyone have experience with it?
G5 Tint
2207 W Valley Blvd Ste B
Alhambra, CA 91803

Thanks.

Those of you with AirBlue 80, comments on the performance?

Been thinking of having it put on the windshield of the barge. I see that Kauro had issues with Elite Winow tint, they applied the film on ours wayy back almost 10 years ago.

Air80 is very good, really reduced the heat, I love it so far. I have it on my IS-F and my GT-R, both black interior, and after install, I can really feel the whole cabin is much cooler, and it does not reduced visibility at night.

Any places in Temecula/Murrieta?

Edit: VIP tint & glass it is. Also, the MDX rear windows have a darker shade to them, does this mean it's tinted?

song's tint masters in mid-city/-wilshire.

2464 W Washington Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90018
(323) 732-3760

they worked on my car back in 2007, and their lifetime tint held up to the test of time and still looked very good when i sold my IS350 in late 2012. very professional and will sit down with you to discuss your options. not the cheapest place in town, but the quality of their work speaks for itself.

they also work on a lot of high-end cars, if that means anything.

give Jae @ STM a call.
