I got the rear side windows and rear window tinted for $99 with a Groupon Coupon. The film used is "Solar Gard Galaxie 5%".
Here is the link for photos.

Great comments on tinting. Can anyone recommend a good tint shop in the Atlanta Georgia area? Maybe not, since we probably have less than 5 Leafs in the city ... lol

I have heard good comments about Sound Proof in Douglasville, in fact, I called them a few days ago and they quoted me $200 for the side windows and back.... pretty high if you ask me. I decided to make an appointment at Rocket Science in Hiram for tomorrow; they quoted me $165 which is still a bit high but not enough to make me feel ripped off.

If anybody has another suggestion, post it here.

The tint looks fantastic! the entire looks of the car is improved and it looks more "grown-up". They honored their over-the-phone quote and did it for $165; I'm now thinking about having a heat reflecting, clear film applied to the windshield.

The technician admitted that he had never installed tint on a LEAF before (I wonder why? :roll: ) so it would take him longer that usual. At the end, it took him about 2.5 hours.

*EDIT: Pictures added (32% at the front, 21% at the back and rear)

Courtey Nissan here in Richardson, TX, says he will tint my Leaf with 'Chrome' tint on front, rear and back for $250. He said the maximum legal allowed here is 25% all through. He wouldn't do anything on the front windshield though. And according to him he is giving me a great discount, since I bought the car there and of course I have a pretty face !

Good deal?

A good idea, especially if you have tint -- If pulled over, turn on your dome light so that the officer can easily see inside your vehicle. Every walkup to a vehicle is a potentially deadly situation for them. Tint makes that a bigger problem. They will appreciate you alleviating that problem.
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

Hi;
I know we East Coast guys are lagging behind a bit, having just gotten our cars, but we are doing our best to catch up.
Got the windows tinted (finally) on my Super Black.
I really like the way It turned out.
30% Front, 50% everywhere else.
In Pennsylvania the laws are "interpretive", but this should keep me out of most trouble.
We'll have to see.
