Default Tint and HIDs

So I'm looking to get my windows tinted and I've been quoted $230 from one place and $250 from another. Both use high quality film and offer a life time warranty. Is this an acceptable price? What have you guys paid to get your car tinted?

For the ddmtuning HID's I'm looking to get, it asks me the bulb type that I want when I'm ordering. I have stock halogens right now. What do I put here? Is it 9005, 9006, or something else.

EDIT: I see its 9006 for the hids. Amazing what some searching does

Then you pay what they're asking...if you have no options you either pay the price or do it yourself.

Nobody near me that was reputable was cheap...

The guy that I had do it was supposed to be one of the best in the area...I had him re-tint both entire sides because there was so much dirt trapped under the tint. I took the car back 3 weeks after the first tint job and showed him all of the dirt, and he re-tinted both sides without any complaints.

There's a spot in Elizabeth NJ called PROTINT. They did my whole car in about 45 minutes for $100 with lifetime warranty. They also have a shop in Newark. I'm in Morris County and the 30 minute drive was alot cheaper than the $400 estimates i received around here

I paid 275 and took 6 hrs to do. You say 6 hrs, yes 6 hrs. Al took off all the door panels so that he would have access to all the glass, took out my back deck and side panels to get to all the glass. The man as true pride in what he does and for that I'll always be a true customer.

Remember you pay for what you get. 5 years from now you'll be back having them scrape off (including your rear defrost) the tint to have them reapply it because black tint turn purple from UV.

I paid $200 to get my 06 tinted. I think that's a decent price if its a reputable place. I've paid $250 before.
