Good work, good price, EXCELLENT service!

I am a two time customer. It took a couple of trips to get everything perfect on my second car, but Heather and the team busted their butts to make it right. And that's why you go here.

Top Notch Service - especially post-sale

Excellent work. Maybe not the cheapest place but they do quality work. But what sets this place apart from other companies is their post-sale support. They stand by their work and will gladly fix any issues...no questions asked. Which is precisely the reason why I've used these guys for 4 different tint/clear bra projects.

Best Tint Shop in Austin

Recommended by an enthusiast automotive forum, I stopped in without an appointment to see their work. Heather was happy to take me to the garage where they were working on high-end cars (BMW 7-series, Maserati Gran Turismo) with caution and precision, so I was sold.

Brought my car in the next day and it was done in about 3 hours. The job normally would have taken 2 hours, but they actually re-did a window after seeing dirt specks when it dried. I was glad they took that extra time to ensure a quality job.

I got Solargard 30 Ceramic on all windows except the windshield and have been really pleased at how well it reflects heat in the Texas summer. Price was totally reasonable as well. I highly recommend Sun Tint.

Worth the money

This is my second experience with this local Austin company and yet again they havn't let me down. I was able to schedule my appointment quite comfortably over phone on Friday . I arrived at the rite time on Saturday afternoon, and , front desk attendant (Believe its Heather) was able to explain clearly the different qualities and price ranges of the films they had. More over she was kind enough to give the 20$ discount , even though it was expired. So far the windows on my Mazda3 looks really nice and there no bubbles. Their work is absolutely professional . Austinites , go local !!!

All-around great, worthy of praise

I'm impressed with the quality of the tint and even moreso, the service. Everyone in the showroom was polite and helpful. Since my main concern was heat, I went with the ceramic tint. It's not cheap, but it is noticeably effective. Now I can actually touch the steering wheel when I get in the car on a scorching Texas day. I was concerned about finding a good tint place when I moved here from Wisconsin last August and read the good reviews, so I went here. I'm very glad I did. They did a good job on my wife's Corolla and my '92 Oldsmobile, even calling after a week or so to make sure I was satisfied... so I recently returned to get my ""new"" '04 Ram tinted. They thanked me for the repeat business and now I'm riding cooler with another ceramic tint. I recommend Sun Tint to anyone who wants a good tint job with great service.

Worst experience ever!

I have to say this is the worst customer service I've ever experienced!!! I called last week to make an appointment and said that I would be available during the weekend and on Monday. I was told by a lady called Heather that Sunday at 10am would be the best time. Then I got a call from Heather on Saturday to reschedule the appointment to 1pm on Sunday. And we even said ""see you tomorrow""! When I arrived on Sunday, the door was closed! I called again on Monday and asked what happened. It was a guy who claimed to be a manager, and told me that he had no idea what happened since Heather was not in. And right now they could not propose any solution since they believe it was a miscommunication!!! I am really disappointed by their service and their way to handle problems. Won't recommend them to anyone!

Best window tinting in Austin

This is the best place in Austin to get your car windows tinted. I've had five cars done there since 1995 and each job has been done excellently and with professionalism. There has not been any problem with the tint. No fading, bubbling or cracking. The cars all look great. The staff is courteous and very professional and the prices are reasonable. I highly recommend Sun Tint.

Only place to get a clear bra

So long story short we needed a clear bra put on the X5 M in Houston where we live and after 3 failed attempts by BMW's third party body shop, Momentum collision, we went to Austin. My husband had his Porche done here a couple years earlier and they did such an exceptional job of wrapping the hood and bumper, he went back for seconds. They also stood out in service in the past as well honoring their work and fixing anything that did not meet our expectations. Dust particles and bubbles were taken out upon request even after driving out the garage. The owner Russell really made a great investment in the laser machine to pre cut the clear bra, everything fit perfectly and there was no risk of razor cuts unlike in Houston (4th largest city) that free hands the cuts. The service was quick and workmanship was superb. I'd go back for every car I have in the future. They wrap the clear bra under the hood and cover as much as possible and all areas where debris would damage. So if you love your car and are meticulous this is the place to go for not only great quality of workmanship but service as well.

My kind of store -

I received courteous, professional and knowledgeable customer service from everyone there !!! Our new Mini looks great and stay cool. I just bought a Honda S2000 and when my wallet recovers a bit, I will be bringing it there for tint. Russell, Denise, Heather and the entire staff took great care of me and will take good care of you too.

Great car window tinting

I'm very happy with the window tinting that Sun Tint put on my car. Service was fantastic -- they took the time to explain my options. The work was finished on time, in about 2 hours. Most importantly, my car looks fantastic with the new tint.

The Place To Go For A Clear Bra!!!!!!!

Need a clear bra on your car? Do not go anywhere but Sun Tint. The work that they did on my M3 was fantastic. I had a clear bra on before but that install was not installed very well at all. Sun Tint went took off the old clear bra and installed the clear bra they sell. I was just blown away on how clean the install was. Sun Tint's customer service was the best I have experienced from a tint shop. They now have a customer for life!!!!!!

I have been using Sun Tint for the past 13 years and these guys are the best you will get. I would not take my cars anywhere else. The service is awesome and the tint wont ever peel, etc. I cant say enough good things about these folks. These are truly good people who do a damn good job. Period.

Tint in time for the Texas Heat!

Denise was great to deal with! They offer free wifi, a cozy area to hang out in while you wait, & a large TV that you can watch.

I went in initially when the temps were VERY low (20's-30's) for Texas and they recommended I wait--I had no idea tinting in cold weather was not advised. I appreciated their honesty.

It was out of the way but because I recieved EXCELLENT service --I made my way back over there today.

Thanks you guys!

First class treatment once again!

This is my 4th vehicle that Sun Tint has installed Carbon film. I am extremely pleased with this business, with emphasis on the staff. The quality of work is first class, staff are curtious, professional, and very quick with their turn around time. Russell the owner takes the time to inform you of tint options and answer any questions you may have. I look forward to repeat business over the next few years. Thank you goes out the owner and staff.

Excellent service and highly recommended

I had my 2009 camry tinted last week. I received an excellent service, and the product quality seems to be excellent too. And best of all they provide life time warranty.

They really stand behind their work - 13 years later!

I had my 1990 Honda Accord tinted in August of 1996. It started bubbling up a couple of years ago on the back window but I kept putting it off until my wife found the original receipt. I brought the car in and without any issues or questions, they honored the warranty and re-tinted the the back window as well as the side windows. An excellent tint job was done in 1996 and an equally fine job was done this August. How many companies would stand behind their work 13 years later? Many thanks to the good people over there at Sun Tint!

Great Prices/Great Workmanship

After buying the new Kia Soul, I heard about a way to help protect it's finish....the Invisible Bra (or Clear Shield). I did my research, shopped around and in the end I went with SunTint because every question I had was answered, their price was reasonable and the customer service excellent. I am thrilled. Dirt, insects and grime just wipe away leaving my Soul clean and ""purty"". Thanks SunTint, you have my recommendation.

Well worth the drive....I would do it again!

I drove from Dallas all the way to Austin (well it's not that far, but was a good drive) to Sun Tint. After reading reviews about their invisible protector shield installation, I had them to install the shield on my Corvette. Words, up most compliments cannot express my gratitude on what a fine professional job they did this past week. They first went over step by step on what they were about to do, the preparation, then the installation, and then the minimal aftercare. KUDO's to Russell and the crew!! I hope that you folks in the Dallas/Fort Worth area see this review. It is/was worth the drive. My baby looks great!!!!! As an added perk, it was great getting out of the crazy metroplex and drive to a beautiful city such as Austin and to a great business as Sun Tint. Thanks again Sun Tint!!!!!!!!
