just keep calling around to the different places in the phone book and you'll find better prices. Beware that some shops will be cheap and will do a crappy job with crappy film though. I paid 250 and the installation is perfect with a lifetime warranty on the installation and against fading.

Way too much, I got my M3 tinted with 35% Formula One tint on all 5 windows for $125 and the job was top notch.
