Window Tinting spot in the Bay?

Having my wife's A4 tinted as part of her b-day present. The place I've been two twice over the years and has perfect reviews on Yelp is not free for 2 weeks.

She has no problem waiting 2 weeks BUT I'm impatient and thought I'd see what places BARF uses. Any shops in the bay that are good?

Should be about $300 for tinting her 4 door sedan and using Formula 1 Pinnacle. Think we're gonna do 20-30%. We saw a guy yesterday and asked what he had..... 5% His driver window was DARK. Said he hasn't got pulled over in 6 months since getting it.

How about 925 tint on beta court, San Ramon. Henry does very good work and I reasonably priced.

Discovery tint in Concord. Jesse does nice work at reasonable prices.

Edit: Genesis in Walnut Creek also does excellent work.

I use Rocky Mountain. Expensive, long wait, but well worth it. All windows (windshield and sunroof included) was $900 for Stratos film. It’s basically like a pinnacle and air film put together. Works really well. The windshield is nice to have tinted but every once and a while I can tell it’s tinted and it bugs me. But that’s a huge window to not be tinted and it blocks some heat and UV from your dash where your vents are, keeping your vents cooler.

I did 70 on windshield, 50% all around, and 30 on sunroof.

Eh I tried Jesse, his tint job is peeling 2 years later and he never trimmed the bottom of the rear window. Id try someone else.

That's disappointing to hear. The work I've seen from him has held up for years.

California auto tinting and polishing in Campbell has always been great. Life time warranty too if it bubbles or anything.

Jeff owns the place, he is awesome and does excellent work. I've taken my cars there and refer my customers to him. I'm a picky bastard and he has not disappointed me.

+1 on Rocky Mountain in Livermore. I had him do Stratos 50% on all 4 doors of my Raptor. I definitely notice the difference in heat reduction.
